Lancaster City Council Appoints Current Deputy City Manager Jason Caudle as Incoming City Manager

Tuesday night, the Lancaster City Council unanimously voted to appoint current Deputy City Manager Jason Caudle as the new incoming City Manager, following the recent retirement announcement by longtime City Manager Mark V. Bozigian.

“This marks an exciting transition here in Lancaster,” said City of Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris. “Having Jason at the ready, allows us to continue the strong momentum we have built over the past decade. We as a Council look forward to Jason’s vision and strong dedication to the organization and community. He is already familiar with our priorities and styles, and we are ready to work closely with him as we continue to make Lancaster a leader amongst California municipalities.” Caudle, who has been Lancaster’s Deputy City Manager for the past ten years, will step into his new role December 22, 2018 -- following Bozigian’s official retirement date. Since joining the City’s executive team in 2008, Caudle has been a champion on many key initiatives, most notably the City’s ongoing Alternative Energy efforts and more recently its many ‘Smart City’ measures. “I am excited to have been chosen to lead our wonderful City staff. Lancaster is an amazing place, and I consider it a privilege to lead our efforts,” said Caudle. “I am familiar with the challenges we face, and look forward to working with the Mayor, City Council, community and staff to further our goals and create a stronger foundation for the future.”
