City manager receives award

September 2, 2014

By Staff

Sammamish City Manager Ben Yazici was recognized with an Award for Excellence from the Washington City/County Management Association during the group’s summer conference Aug. 21.

According to the association’s website, the award “recognizes an outstanding administrator or manager who has enhanced the effectiveness of local elected officials and consistently initiated creative and successful programs.”

In a statement, Yazici credited others for aiding him in earning the recognition.

“It’s my job to take direction from the City Council, and then lead an excellent staff,” he said. “But I’m just one part of the puzzle. This award, which I really appreciate, wouldn’t have come my way if a lot of people weren’t doing great work.”
