League of California Cities names new executive director

4th director, first woman to serve League since it was founded in 1898

Carolyn Coleman, director of Federal Advocacy for the National League of Cities, has been named the new executive director of the League of California Cities.

She was selected to succeed Chris McKenzie, the League’s former executive director, following a national search by the League’s executive officers and other members of its board of directors. Pleasanton Mayor Jerry Thorne is a board member of the organization.

Coleman, who will start in her new position in December, has served as a director at the National League of Cities since 2006. She has a law degree from Indiana University and a bachelor’s degree in business from the University of Kansas.

Before working for the NLC, she served as a deputy mayor for the city of Indianapolis, and previously practiced law in the private sector.

She is only the fourth executive director and the first woman to serve the League since it was founded in 1898.
