“Jim Patterson has provided thoughtful, strategic leadership for the City throughout his tenure as City Manager,” said Corvallis Mayor Julie Manning. “He has worked effectively with the City Council, staff, residents and other community partners, and much has been accomplished under his watch. I have very much enjoyed working with Jim, and he will be missed.”
