Dear Mr. Rodriguez,

It is with great enthusiasm that I submit my qualifications for the City Manager position in Kalamazoo. I have both the experience and skills that you require from your advertisement. I have included my resume for your review.

For the past nine years, I have worked for the city of Eugene as City Manager, managing over 15 department heads, implementing new city improvement plans, and tackling a budget despite state funding challenges. In that time, I have implemented and oversaw over 35 new economic development structures and programs, cut the budget by 5%, and restructured the employment of the city for more optimum service to the public. I work well with the public and private entities in my city, and would like to bring my experience, community involvement abilities, and communications and management skills to Kalamazoo.

I warmly welcome a time to meet to discuss past and ongoing successes of my present position, as well as what goals you have for your open position. Please contact me at (123)-347-9095 and [email] to do this. Thanks for considering me for this position, and I look forward to your response.


Your Signature

John Gough
