Los Angeles IT Manager Thera Bradshaw to Retire



July 12, 2006 By

Thera Bradshaw today announced she will retire on July 23, after 33 years of public service and following four years leading the Information Technology Agency.

"As the general manager of the city of Los Angeles Information Technology Agency (ITA) for the past two years," said Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa. "Thera Bradshaw has worked tirelessly to advance technology's role in our city and government. During her tenure, ITA has furthered its efforts to offer wireless service Internet access to visitors and link citizens to downtown city council meetings via live video teleconferencing technology, among other initiatives.

"The need to improve technological services and opportunities to our residents is as great as any need facing the city of Los Angeles," continued Villaraigosa, "and Ms. Bradshaw met this challenge with enthusiasm. I wish Ms. Bradshaw much success and enjoyment in her retirement and I congratulate her on a job well done."

Villaraigosa said he would name an interim general manager while a national search for a successor is conducted.
