During more than thirty years in local government, Martel has held executive management positions with several California municipalities including the cities of Inglewood, South San Francisco and Daly City where she previously served as the Assistant City Manager from 1995-2001. In 2001, she served as the General Manager of the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission which serves over two million people in the Bay Area. In 2005, Martel was unanimously appointed as City Manager of Daly City.

In 2012 Martel sat down with CCMF to share her thoughts on City Management in our inaugural Meet Your City Manager video series. Her interview can be viewed here.

“We are excited, and not at all surprised, to see this award go to Patricia,” said CCMF Executive Director Ken Pulskamp. “Her work exemplifies excellence in city management, and stands as a model for us all.”
