Cambridge has not had a new city manager since 1981, but that will all change when Richard Rossi, former deputy city manager, will take over from veteran municipal manager Robert Healy as the next city manager.
The city council recently gave the nod to Rossi and granted him with a three-year contract. Rossi, who has dreamt of running the city since learning what a city manager does when he was a student in junior high school, was elated. He enthused:
“I thought, well wouldn’t that be cool, the ability to run the whole city, never dreaming that someday I would have that opportunity.
“I’m very much appreciative. I’m in awe. I will promise you hard work and good communication.”
While city council appoints a city manager, they have little to do with actually managing municipal affairs. They do appoint office employees, the town clerk, and an auditor. It is the manager, however, that looks after hiring other staff, with the exception of the school superintendent. That position is chosen by the School Committee.
Outgoing manager Robert Healy made his retirement date of June 30, 2013 known to city council in the summer. A subcommittee was struck to find a successor, but promoting Rossi into the role seemed natural as he would provide continuity and stability.
