Rockville to welcome new Deputy City Manager

The City of Rockville will welcome a new Deputy City Manager later this month. Barack Matite has been named to the position by City Manager Rob DiSpirito. Matite has served as the city manager of Eudora, Kansas since 2016. He was one of over 100 applicants from across the nation who applied for the position, after outgoing Deputy City Manager Angela Judge resigned to relocate with her husband, who has assumed command of United States Coast Guard Training Center Cape May in Cape May, New Jersey.

“With his experience and accountability as a chief executive officer in a full-service city, Barack will bring all his professional talents and deep familiarity with the broad range of municipal services to this critical position on our team,” DiSpirito said in a statement. “Barack fully understands what it takes to support the success of a mayor and council, a city organization, and a community of engaged and diverse residents. I look forward to working with Barack and introducing him as we serve the people of Rockville.”

Matite holds a master’s degree in public administration from the University of Kansas, a bachelor’s degree in global and international studies from the University of Kansas, and attended the Senior Executive Institute at the University of Virginia, Weldon Cooper Center of Public Service.

“I am excited, honored and humbled to be selected to serve as the next deputy city manager for the City of Rockville,” Matite said in a statement. “I look forward to becoming a member of the Rockville community and joining the Rockville team that is dedicated and works hard to achieve the Mayor and Council’s vision and goals for the community.”
