Police Chief Mark Yokoyama to become new city manager

The city has selected Alhambra Chief of Police Mark Yokoyama to become the next city manager after former City Manager Mary Swink announced her retirement in March, according to a press release.
City council hired a team to look statewide for a new city manager in January. The city received and interviewed “a number of highly qualified candidates,” said Mayor Barbara Messina. “Mr. Yokoyama is the best for the job,” Messina added.
"I am excited and honored to be selected to serve as the new city manager,” said Yokoyama. He said he is eager to "make the quality of life the best possible for everyone to live, work and play.” City council will consider the contract with Yokoyama at a May 23 council meeting. The proposed start date is May 24, 2016.
Yokoyama has served at Alhambra's police chief since June of 2011. He has been credited with enhancing "community oriented policing" through various community programs and innovative outreach initiatives, which includes launching Alhambra PD’s Chinese Weibo account to connect with the city's immigrant population.
Yokoyama holds a master's degree in Behavioral Science from Cal State Dominguez Hills and a second master's in Executive Leadership from the University of Southern California. In a 2011 interview with the Source, Yokoyama said he hoped for the APD to be "progressive, contemporary and sophisticated in everything that we do."
