City loses administrative officer

The District of West Kelowna is looking for a new Chief Administrative Officer.

Jason Johnson informed council today (Tuesday) he has accepted the City Manager's job with the City of Victoria.

He will be leaving his current position with the municipality effective mid-February next year.

“We accepted this news with heavy hearts, but I know all of council is very pleased for Mr. Johnson and the exciting new opportunity he has accepted,” says Mayor Doug Findlater.

“Council has enjoyed an excellent relationship with our CAO during the past six years, he has helped us achieve more than we thought possible and his advice and counsel will be greatly missed.”

Johnson was the first Chief Administrative Officer hired by the newly-incorporated municipality in January 2008.

West Kelowna Council will begin work immediately to find a suitable replacement.

“We will work quickly to begin the recruitment process for a new Chief Administrative Officer, keeping in mind the best interests of the community and District staff as we seek to fill this key municipal position,” says Mayor Findlater.

“I have enjoyed my years at the District, helping to build the new municipality from the ground up with leadership from Mayor and Council and the tremendous help of the municipality’s strong, dedicated staff team,” says Jason Johnson.
