Menlo Park names new assistant city manager

Starla Jerome-Robinson, assistant city manager for the city of Los Altos since 1999, has been named Menlo Park's new assistant city manager, effective Oct. 20. Ms. Jerome-Robinson, who lives in Menlo Park, was Atherton's finance director from 1996 to July 1999.

"Starla has excellent qualifications for this position and we are very pleased with her experiences, especially in other Peninsula communities," City Manager Glen Rojas said in a written statement late Friday, Oct. 3. "We are confident she will hit the ground running here in Menlo Park and help us achieve many of our most important organizational goals."

Before her stint in Atherton, Ms. Jerome-Robinson was finance director and held other management-level positions in the city of Milpitas from 1980 to 1996. She has a bachelor's degree in political science from the University of California, Santa Barbara.
