RIORDAN NAMES COUNTY PERSONNEL HEAD TO CITY POST.

Byline: Patrick McGreevy Daily News Staff Writer

Mayor Richard Riordan announced Thursday that he is appointing county personnel manager William T. Fujioka as general manager of the city's Personnel Department.

Picked by the city from 70 candidates in a national recruitment effort, Fujioka, 44, has served as a manager for the county Human Resources Department since January, specializing in overseeing specialized recruitment programs and as administrator for High Desert Hospital in Lancaster.

``Bill has a solid track record as a leader and manager,'' Riordan said. ``Given his strong skills and experience, I am confident he will be an exceptional leader for the Personnel Department.''

Fujioka, who will be paid $130,000 annually, has worked for the county for 18 years, before which he started his career with the city working on Los Angeles Police Department recruitment.

He has a bachelor of arts degree in sociology from the University of California, Santa Cruz.

Councilman Nate Holden said it was a ``bad call'' for the mayor to pass over acting general manager Jurutha Brown, who has 20 years of service to the city.

``It's just another signal that the mayor is sending that people who are not of his choosing, that he is trying to get rid of them,'' Holden said.
