Vernon Appoints Interim City Administrator

By EGP Staff Report

A public administration consultant who most recently served as the executive director of the San Bernardino International Airport Authority has been appointed Vernon’s Interim City Administrator, the city announced Thursday.

The appointment comes on the heels of last week’s sudden departure of former City Administrator Mark C. Whitworth.

According too the city, the Vernon City Council appointed A.J. Wilson to lead the city while an executive search firm and staff continue their search for a permanent replacement for Whitworth.

Whitworth retired Dec. 28 after more than 26 years of public service in Vernon, nearly five months earlier than he previously announced.

Council members are expected to interview prospective candidates in the coming weeks.
