Debra Sue Johnson Leaves for Corte Madera

We are saddened to announce that Debra Sue Johnson, Public Works Director, has accepted the Public Works Manager position with the Town of Corte Madera. Debra Sue previously worked as a consultant for Corte Madera for 12 years before joining Fairfax. She is returning to fill a very important role for their town and will be working for Corte Madera Town Manager Dave Bracken, formerly their Public Works Director, and mentor to Debra Sue.

Debra Sue joined the Town of Fairfax in 2005 and seven months later, the flood hit. Immediately she was on the scene mobilizing staff and resources to restore safety to our roads and to assess the damage. She navigated the Town through a very trying period of time with our FEMA projects and secured funding for several grant funded public works projects. During this time, Debra Sue also made time to study and complete her Bachelor’s degree. We all benefited from Debra Sue’s talent and dedication, and we wish her the best of success in Corte Madera. Her last day with the Town of Fairfax will be Sept. 7th.
