Peter Troedsson starts as assistant city manager for the city of Bothell on Feb. 10.

Troedsson was selected by city officials over 100 other candidates that applied. He comes to the city from the United States Coast Guard (USCG), from which he just retired after 30 years of service.

The city of Bothell is a council-manager form of government. Under this form of government, the elected governing body is responsible for the legislative function of the city. The council hires a city manager to oversee the administrative operations, implement its policies and advise it. Amongst other duties, the assistant city manager will fulfill the role of city manager as needed or delegated.

“Peter is very excited about this opportunity, and I look forward to having him join our team,” said Bob Stowe, city manager for the city of Bothell. “His commitment to continue to work in public service and his ability to translate strategies into results, along with his ability to build partnerships, were key reasons for his selection.”

Troedsson brings several years of executive level experience leading public service organizations within the USCG. His positions have ranged from management analyst and chief of staff to commanding officer of Air Station in Georgia. He was also chief of staff for the Eighth Coast Guard District; military fellow in residence, council on foreign relations and presently USCG Liaison to assistant secretary of defense for homeland defense at the Pentagon.

A political science graduate of UCLA and later planning for his post-military public service, Troedsson obtained his masters in public administration from George Washington University.
