As an associate vice president, a statement from the City of Golden said Slowinski will work the school's capital planning, infrastructure, facilities and sustainability efforts.
“While we're sad to see Jason go, we know he won't be going too far away, and we're thrilled for Jason and his family,” said Mayor of Golden Laura M. Weinberg. ”He has served the City of Golden well, and we're fortunate that he will continue to be part of the Golden community in his new role.”
Appointed as city manager in 2015, Slowinski led several key initiatives during his tenure, including investments in crucial infrastructure projects such as the new interchange at 6th Avenue and 19th Street, street upgrades on North Washington Avenue, and current drainage improvements along Ford Street.
In addition, he helped negotiate the acquisition of crucial downtown properties and introduced new budgetary practices to increase city budget transparency.
“I'm grateful for the partnership that I've had with Jason, especially during the recent pandemic. The city couldn't have asked for a more calm and steady hand at the helm during this uncertain time,”Weinberg said.
“I'm very appreciative of the opportunity to have served the City of Golden, and I am grateful for the support that Mayor Weinberg and City Council have given me during my tenure,” Slowinski said. “I am looking forward to my work with the Colorado School of Mines, right here in Golden.”
Weinberg will soon meet with City Council to discuss recruitment plans for Slowinski's successor and appoint an interim city manager.
“Golden is an outstanding community, and I'm confident we will be able to attract top-quality candidates to serve as Golden's next city manager,” Weinberg said.
