Jessica Binnquist has been named Alhambra’s new city manager. The City Council is expected to vote on her contract on Jan. 8, 2018.

Binnquist has worked with the City of Alhambra since 2009, and most recently served as Interim City Manager after Mark Yokoyama stepped down in November.

“I have loved my time serving the citizens of Alhambra,” said Binnquist, in a press release. “I look forward to working alongside the Council, staff and the community to ensure Alhambrans continue to enjoy an enhanced quality of life.”

  1. Jessica Binnquist is a terrible choice for Alhambra City Manager! The City Council probably chose her because they know she will be another lap dog for them. Plus, she’s privy to (and fosters) all the corruption at City Hall so they want to keep her around. Wonder if she will last longer than 2 years like the last two in-house city managers who stopped off at the position to increase their pensions before they retired? Let’s hope she doesn’t. I wonder who else applied for the job.

    Oh well, guess Alhambrans can expect more of the same at city hall as long as Jessica and the current lot of bought and paid for council members hold the reins.

  2. Grassroots Alhambra

    Grassroots Alhambra opposes the appointment of Jessica Binnquist as city manager.
    “As an Assistant City Manager and Deputy City Manager for Alhambra, Ms. Binnquist has mismanaged programs resulting in a disservice to residents that were to be assisted. In her position to administer the city’s housing and community development monies, millions of dollars of federal grant funding dedicated to helping lower income groups were instead used to subsidize favored corporations and businesses.”

  3. I’m surprised they hired someone that doesn’t live in Alhambra. The CC doesn’t like folks from out of town coming into their city.

Stay Informed.
