Manager pens ‘Dear John’ to city

After 18 years at the helm of the city of San Mateo, City Manager Arne Croce is stepping aside and making way for another skipper.

Croce sent the City Council a letter Tuesday announcing his retirement. The council will hold a special session today to appoint an interim city manager and begin the search for a permanent replacement.

Croce, who was city manager of Los Altos before taking the job with San Mateo in 1990, said he plans to spend the first several months of his retirement with his wife Carol traveling and doing international volunteer work.

Mayor Carole Groom described Croce as an “extraordinary” manager.
