David Kiff Appointed Interim City Manager of Sonoma

Sonoma has selected an interim replacement for outgoing city manager Cathy Capriola. Veteran administrator David Kiff’s appointment has been approved by the City council. He’ll assume the position once Capriola leaves in December.

Kiff is the interim city manager for Healdsburg right now. He previously served as interim city manager of Huntington Beach. He also worked for Newport Beach for two decades, as well as Orange County, the City of Orange, and the California State Legislature.

“David Kiff brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table,” said Sonoma Mayor Logan Harvey in a press release announcing the appointment. “He knows Sonoma County and has successfully led Healdsburg’s COVID-19 response assisting businesses and residents alike. David's experience and knowledge of the relevant county partners will ensure a smooth and stable transition period as the council works to hire a permanent city manager.”
