San Francisco State University's Graduate Public Administration Program has presented its 2011 Outstanding Public Service Award to San Carlos Assistant City Manager Brian Moura. 

The award is presented each year in recognition of "outstanding and significant public service" to a public manager who is "an inspiration and role model for our students."  The presentation was made earlier this evening at the university's annual graduation ceremony for the 2011 Masters in Public Administration class at the San Francisco State University Downtown Campus.

In presenting the award, Public Administration Professor and Department Chair Genie Stowers cited a number of key achievements during Moura's public management career including developing one of the first City Web Sites in the nation, being a leader in eGovernment services for the public, public/private partnership projects at Joint Venture: Silicon Valley and Public Technology Institute (PTI) and his work as an assistant city manager, finance director, human resources director, parks and recreation director, economic development manager and interim city manager.

Stowers said "Brian continues to have an excellent career in the fields of city management, public administration, public sector technology and collaborative management.  Our department is particularly impressed with the way that he has been involved and has led so many cutting edge, collaborative projects in the cities, counties and agencies that he has worked at during his distinguished career."

After the award presentation, Stowers asked Moura to offer some graduation cerfemony comments to this year's MPA Graduating class. He talked about changes in the economy, public finances, demographics and the "opportunities and challenges" that face today's new public administrators. He urged them to "find that balance between resources and services" and said that those who can do this will succeed in their public administration careers.
