FWay city manager quitting


The Mirror

City manager David Moseley will usher Federal Way through one more mid-biennial budget before he bids the city farewell to take a position as the national field director for the Seattle-based Institute for Community Change.

Moseley announced this week he’ll stay with the city through the end of next month. No plans have been made yet for replacing him.

When former Seattle mayor Charles Royer was forming the institute earlier this year, he asked Moseley if he’d be interested. Moseley declined. “I felt challenged here and I enjoyed what I was doing,” Moseley said.

But a few weeks ago, Royer was reworking the role of the national field director and came to the conclusion he needed a more senior person to take it on. The job expanded a bit and, when Royer asked again if Moseley was interested, Moseley bit.

Last April, Moseley was a finalist to become the city manager in Tacoma. That job went to Eric Anderson, who had been the city manager of Des Moines, Iowa.

The Institute for Community Change (ICC) is a non-profit agency that manages the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Urban Health Initiative, a $65 million campaign to improve the health and safety of children in five major U.S.
