After an extensive search process, the City of Hood River mayor and council announced Monday that Rachael Fuller will be Hood River’s next city manager beginning Aug. 20. She replaces five-year City Manager Steve Wheeler, who is retiring and will work through Aug. 21.
“We’re very excited to have Rachael Fuller join us,” Hood River Mayor Paul Blackburn said. “We were impressed by her experience and qualifications with administrative roles in Oregon and in rural communities similar to ours.”
Fuller, originally from Seattle, lived and worked for Jackson Hole, Wyo., as a program coordinator and special project coordinator before moving back to the northwest. She most recently served as assistant city manager for Gresham, for the past seven years. Fuller has a master’s degree in Public Administration from the University of Wyoming, and a bachelor’s degree from Williams College.
