Pasadena City Manager Michael Beck Resigns for UCLA Job
Michael Beck has resigned from his position as Pasadena City Manager, Nov, 20, 2015.
Beck’s official last date is Feb 14, 2016.
The discussion of filling the position of City Manager, it is the responsibility of the mayor to select a new City Manager for Pasadena.
Beck leaves the city of Pasadena with a $6.5 million embezzlement, police community relations stressed, crime up, the McDade report, city staffing issues, development/planning controversy, and a variety of other issues, much like Beck did with the City of Riverside. The time for him to leave seemed, right as the embezzlement report was issued the week prior.
Coincidentally with the release of the embezzlement investigation released earlier in the week, Mr. Beck turned in his resignation.
Beck succeeds Jack Powazek, who retired in July after more than 40 years of service to UCLA in various capacities, including as administrative vice chancellor since 2011.
Also, interesting to note that UCLA is an occupant of the Rose Bowl, and has been for many years.
A letter to city employees was sent Friday.
He assumes leadership of the UCLA administrative division on March 1, 2016. The division comprises eight units: campus police, environment health and safety, campus human resources, housing and hospitality services, facilities management, transportation and events, information technology services and the central ticket office. The division is UCLA’s largest, with more than 4,400 employees and a budget of approximately $625 million.
Beck is taking the position of administrative vice chancellor.
