Administrative services director heads to Tracy

Alameda's administrative services director is heading to Tracy.

Stephanie Garrabrant-Sierra is leaving the Island for an assistant city manager's post in Tracy. She starts work in that city on September 1.

The city brought Garrabrant-Sierra on as an assistant city attorney in June 2012. In November 2013 it elevated her to the position of administrative services director, putting her in charge of contracting, purchasing, human resources and information technology. She has also advised the city on collective bargaining issues with its labor unions.

The job was created by former City Manager John Russo as part of a restructuring effort at City Hall.

Garrabrant-Sierra's departure makes her the third top city executive to leave the Island this year. City officials are in the midst of a formal process to replace Russo, who left Alameda to become Riverside's top manager in May, taking Assistant City Manager Alex Nguyen with him.
