Home to approximately 500,000 residents, Sonoma County offers a rare and compelling array of scenic, recreational, and geographic characteristics – including over 200 award-winning wineries, inspiring coastline and beaches, the Russian River, and majestic redwoods. The County encompasses over one million acres of land and water, rich with agriculture, parks, campsites, lakes, and open spaces and is also home to a wide variety of art and music festivals, farmers’ markets, and concert venues. The County is now seeking a Director of Transportation and Public Works. The ideal candidate will be a smart, energetic, forward-thinking manager and innovative visionary who can anticipate issues, think analytically, and act strategically to meet the current and future needs of the Department. An experienced professional with strong communication skills along with the interpersonal and relationship-building skills to cultivate and maintain harmonious working relationships with subordinates, representatives of other County departments and agencies, private contractors, engineers, architects, local leaders, and the general public is sought; someone who is politically astute, but apolitical, will be ideal.
