SPOKANE - Spokane City Administrator Wes Crago is resigning less than one year after leaving the same post he had with the city of Ephrata for years. The Spokesman Review reports that newly-elected Spokane Mayor Nadine Woodward had picked him for the city administrator role. Crago joined the city of Spokane in November.
“Everything is very positive and I have no hard feelings or ill feelings,” Crago told the Spokesman-Review on Saturday. “My heart kind of lies with the smaller organizations and being a little closer on the operational side and the staff members in a tight community.”
Crago told iFIBER ONE News that become Spokane's city administrator was a "dream job."
Crago will be replaced by Public Works Director Scott Simmons as an interim.
Prior to taking the job with the city of Spokane, Crago spent 16 years as Ephrata's City Administrator.
Ephrata's current city administrator is former Ephrata Police Chief Mike Warren who has permanently became the city's top official.
iFIBER ONE News will follow up to find out if Crago has any plans to return to Ephrata.
