State of the City

Excerpt from the 2017-2018 State of the City Address Ginger Allen, City Manager On March 1, of this year I completed my second year as Scio’s city manager.  Actually, the first 15 months I served as your interim city manager and then in June of 2017 I signed a two-year contract.  I cannot believe it’s been two years.  The time has gone by so fast.  There have been times in my life where I wish time would pass quickly, but I can honestly say….. this…. is not one of those times.  I began working on this message over a month ago and it just wasn’t jelling.  I even spent time reading other city address messages and while they were motivational, they didn’t resonate with what I had in mind for tonight. And then, yesterday while listening to a message at church; it dawned on me……  What I really want to share with you tonight is this:  Being your city manager and being a civil servant is not just a “job”, it is a privilege and a responsibility that should not be taken lightly.  I will speak more about this in a few minutes but before I get too far I wish to acknowledge the Scio City Council: Mayor Chadd Weaver, Council President, Debbie Nuber, Councilors Wolfgang Borchard, Karen Eckhart, Tom Gray, Joey Ferguson and Richard Nelson.  Thank you all for your commitment and leadership to me and to Scio, by working together we have and will continue to collectively succeed.
