CITY ATTORNEY STEPS DOWN IN ALAMEDA Alameda City Attorney Carol Korade said she’s excited to have “a mid-career adventure” after announcing Thursday she would leave the post she’s held for nearly 17 years. “I’m just looking for the next challenge,” said Korade, who had been negotiating with city leaders over a new employment contract. Korade said she reached an “amicable resolution” with the City Council but could not agree on salary and benefits. She declined to address specific sticking points from her talks with the city. “I’ve had 17 years here. It’s an extraordinarily long run for a city attorney,” Korade said. The Alameda City Council will discuss Korade’s departure and its plans to hire a new city attorney at a March 21 meeting. Korade said she will likely stay at work for a few months. Then she will take some time off to pursue employment options in public sector law. To begin collecting retirement benefits, Korade cannot accept another stint as a full-time, in-house attorney at a public agency that’s part of the California Public Employees’ Retirement System. Korade said she expects to remain in the Bay Area, possibly at a private firm that specializes in public-sector law or as a contract attorney for a public agency. A former deputy city attorney in Santa Monica and an assistant city attorney in Newport Beach, Korade said she moved north for a reason and has no intention of going back. “It was a conscious change to avoid sitting in traffic with 3 million of your closest friends,” she said. � Matthew Hirsch
