Larry McLaughlin is retiring...
Larry McLaughlin has been an amazing City Manager/City Attorney for Sebastopol. For 35 years he has been on staff, as City Attorney first, and then adding on the City Manager role. I will miss him more than I can say. Larry's skills and experience were substantial, but for me it was his character that made working with him so wonderful. He was an honest, kind, organized, approachable leader with a heart of gold. He provided stability and reassurance to all, and he always dealt with whatever came at him with complete equanimity. Sebastopol has been fortunate to have him, and I will miss him greatly.
