I wanted to take a few minutes to welcome two new additions to our team: Lawrence Cutrone and Mary Carmen Nunez.
Lawrence Cutrone has joined the Alpine team as our Director of Utilities replacing Virgil Clark. Lawrence comes to us from the Upper Trinity Regional Water District in Lewisville, Texas. He has accomplished ‘B’ licensing in both Wastewater and Surface Water with the intent to test for his ‘A’ licensing in February of 2015. He has a Bachelor of Arts from Louisiana State University and a Masters of Public Administration from University of Texas at Arlington. Lawrence brings a hands on approach to leadership and has a history of bringing innovation to the workplace. We look forward to his input and corroboration with our existing staff and tackling the many challenges in front of our Utilities Department.
Mary Carmen Nunez has joined the City team as our Executive Assistant to the City Manager. In this role, Mary Carmen will help facilitate the timely completion of our 180-day plans, revitalization of our Airport operations and general overflow work from the CM role. Previously, Mary Carmen worked as the Administrative Assistant supporting Dr. Larry Guerrero at Sul Ross State University. She is a graduate of Alpine High School, has her Bachelors of Art from University of Incarnate Word and is currently working on her Masters in Education at SRSU.
I trust that both Lawrence and Mary Carmen will make positive contributions to our community over the next several years. I am excited to have them on our team supporting the citizens of our City.
