SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- The search for a city manager looks to be nearing an end in Springfield.

Mayor Christine Lundberg and the city council have decided to negotiate a contract with Nancy Newton.

“Nancy brings a wealth of experience and is very dedicated to public service," Lundberg said in a news release. "She’s also energized about Springfield and we want that for our community. We are excited to see how Springfield will continue to grow under her helm.”

On March 2, the mayor and council will discuss the city manager contract in a public session. A final contract could be approved at the March 16 council meeting.

City officials said Newton has more than 20 years of local government management experience. She is currently an assistant county executive/chief operating officer in Sacramento County, California. She has prior experience in Clackamas County, as well. 

Newton has a bachelor's degree in management and organizational leadership from George Fox University and a master's degree in public administration from Portland State University.
