Rob Stalzer, Fairfax County’s deputy county executive for the past 18 years, has been named the new city manager for the City of Fairfax. He’ll replace David Hodgkins, who’s been the acting city manager since longtime city manager, Bob Sisson, retired June 30. Stalzer will take over on Jan. 7.
For the county, he served as the deputy for public safety, planning and development (2000-2012) and the deputy for planning and development (2012-present).
Pleased to now be joining a smaller municipality, Stalzer said, “Fairfax City has an incredible reputation in the region for its small-city feel, with award-winning parks, services and a vibrant business sector – and it's home to the largest university in the commonwealth, George Mason. I can't wait to help make this an even better place to live, work and do business.”
