Both Rod Gould, city manager of Santa Monica, and Doug Willmore, city manager of Bell, were recognized during the recent Cal-ICMA board meeting at the City Managers' Department conference in Long Beach. Rod Gould, who is currently serving as one of ICMA’s West Coast Regional Vice Presidents, was recognized for his work to establish a code of ethics for the staff and elected officials during his tenure with the city of Poway. Doug Willmore was acknowledged for his work to put the city of Bell back on an ethical track after the crisis in that community. Early in 2013, the Cal-ICMA board approved the guidelines and criteria for this Cal-ICMA awards program.
