Dear Mr. Maya,

I write today with great interest in your Planner position for the city of Bakersfield. I am confident that I am the best match for this opening, and ask that you consider me for it.

Subsequent to obtaining my degree in Urban Planning, I went on to work for the city of Prescott in which my title was that of City Planner. I fulfilled a number of responsibilities to include the overall planning of all urban and economic development, budgeting, coordination with architects and foremen, and constant communication with City Manager. I have included a number of projects from this position in my attached resume, and would love to show you a portfolio with more details on these projects. This span of experience is over 17 years. I work well with supervisors, colleagues, employees, and customers.

If you are curious about these details, and what other benefits I can bring your city; I ask that you contact me at (999)-487-4214 to arrange a meeting. Thanks for your time and consideration.
