Claremont City Manager Stepping Down

Finance Director Adam Pirrie was appointed acting city manager by the Claremont City Council last week.The unanimous appointment came after the resignation of City Manager Tara Schultz.

City officials have not disclosed any details about Schultz’s exit, though they thanked her for her service to the city. Claremont Mayor Larry Schroeder told the Claremont Courrier that it was a personnel decision reached by mutual agreement.

Schultz was hired in 2018. She had previously served as assistant city manager of Alhambra. Pirrie has worked for Claremont for the past 17 years and has served as finance director since 2011.
