Atherton hires new deputy city manager/city clerk

Anthony Suber will replace Theresa DellaSanta

The town of Atherton has hired Anthony Suber as its deputy city manager and city clerk to take over for Theresa DellaSanta starting May 30, according to a May 3 town press release. DellaSanta is leaving to take on a new role as the city of Menlo Park's human resources manager on May 20.

Suber, a San Mateo resident, most recently served as assistant city clerk for the city of Manteca.

Before that, Suber was a supervisor with the San Mateo County Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder's Office, where he helped coordinate the all-mail ballot election in 2015, the 2016 presidential election and conversion to countywide vote centers. He also supervised the design and production of the official ballot, as well as precinct evaluation and analysis.

Suber, a graduate of Los Altos High School, holds bachelor's degrees in political science and speech communication and rhetoric studies from Hofstra University in New York.

He returned to California in 2015 after spending over 10 years in New York, where he worked in government services administration and consulting with MAXIMUS and America Works.

"Anthony is passionate about public service and committed to helping residents connect with services efficiently," town officials said in the press release.

DellaSanta joined the town of Atherton's staff in 2009 and served several roles - including human resources manager and interim city manager - prior to her work as deputy city manager and city clerk. Before that, she was deputy board secretary for the San Mateo County Harbor District.

DellaSanta's last day with the town is May 15. Suber will meet with DellaSanta for a few days prior to her departure for job training, the town said.

Beginning on May 30, Suber can be reached at and 650-752-0529.
