“Salinas will always be a very special place for me,” said Corpuz. “I am fortunate to have served the City while having met so many wonderful people.”

Corpuz previously managed Seaside for six years. Before that, he was city manager of Tacoma, Washington. His tenure in Salinas saw the appointment of the city's first female police and fire chiefs and the passage of a 1% sales tax through voter-approved Measure G.
