Friendliest New Face At City Hall

Roger Chan

Could Assistant City Manager Roger Chan possibly be having fun in one of the city's most taxing administrative positions? Unlike assistant city managers who have come before him, Chan doesn't seem to mind playing liaison to the public while trying to keep both hands on the wheel of the city's fast-tracked economic development projects - the Austin Convention Center expansion and new City Hall, among others. A former businessman, Chan claims he wants to be remembered for his public service. We applaud his ambition.
