On behalf of the City Council, it is my sincere pleasure to announce the appointment of Elaine Wang to serve as Winooski’s City Manager. Elaine has been serving as the Assistant Town Manager in the Town of Barre, Vermont since 2016 and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to Winooski.

Elaine’s credentials also include a Master of Public Administration Degree from Norwich University, a Master of Science Degree in Natural Resources (Transportation Energy Policy) from the University of Vermont, and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Conservation and Resource Studies from the University of California at Berkeley.
There were nineteen applicants for the position. Five were selected to be interviewed by the City Manager Search Committee as semifinalist, three of which were selected to be interviewed by the Mayor and City Council as finalists. The final interview process consisted of an in-person interview by the City’s Leadership Team, a tour of Winooski, a well-attended community meet & greet at the O’Brien Community Center, and a final in-person interview by the Mayor and City Council. I’d like to personally thank the staff, residents, and Search Committee for their service in support of this important decision-making process. We are thrilled that Elaine will officially begin as Winooski City Manager on May 16, 2022. Additional opportunities will be available to meet Elaine, please keep an eye out for announcements on our website and join us in welcoming Elaine to Winooski!
