Dear friends: I would like to announce that I will be leaving my position with the City of Sacramento, as I have accepted a new position in Southern California. My decision was difficult, but ultimately it was a family decision. It has been a privilege to work along side so many smart, committed, creative members of our community during the past 16 months. I have grown to love Sacramento, and more importantly, I hope I have contributed positively. I am proud of the great work we together accomplished in delivering a cultural plan that reflects Sacramento’s challenges and aspirations. Thank you for welcoming me into this very special place. I have no doubt you will continue to do extraordinary things. You are, after all, the Capital of the most creative place in the country. I look forward to announcing my new position in a few weeks, and remaining in touch.  With gratitude - Jonathon
