Top City Official Bruce Johnson Steps Down
Johnson has worked in top management positions for the city since October 2003.
Bruce Johnson, a top city official since 2003, officially stepped down this week.
He was most recently chief of staff. Prior to that, he was acting city manager and also the city’s chief financial officer.
Johnson, who lives in the Beverley Hills neighborhood, has worked for the city since October 2003. Initially, he served as the director of the Office of Management and Budget, and was promoted to the position of CFO in February 2009.
He told Patch late last year when he took on the acting city manager position that he would likely scout around for a new job, possibly as an adjunct professor in public policy administration.
He and his wife, who he met while they were attending Duke University, raised three children in the city, all of whom graduated from T.C. Williams High School.
Johnson received a law degree and master’s degree in public policy from Duke University and is a hardcore Blue Devils fan. He earned his undergraduate degree in government from Harvard University
Previously, he spent 27 years working for the federal government, serving as budget director for the U.S. Courts, and in staff positions in the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, the U.S. General Accounting Office, the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Bureau of the Census.
