“I am overjoyed to have this opportunity to lead the sustainability program for the City of Mountain View, a city that is leading the way regionally in building a sustainable community,” Lee said in the City’s media release. “I’m particularly excited about sustainability and resiliency from the lens of building a stronger and more connected community for everyone.”
City Manager Kimbra McCarthy is equally positive about Lee, and about the future of the City’s Sustainability Division, saying that Lee has “significant experience developing policies and implementing programs that foster sustainability, resilience, and community well-being” and “an ideal skill set to collaborate across the City organization and with community partners to set and accomplish Mountain View’s vision for a sustainable future.”
