Leading in hard times.
As city manager, Bill has been a driving force behind, and the face of Anchorage’s response to multiple emergencies, including the 2018 earthquake, the coronavirus pandemic, and daunting fiscal challenges caused by state budget cuts.
With his even-keeled manner, Bill builds authentic consensus around policies that most benefit the people of Anchorage. He’s a great communicator, but at heart he is a doer, not a talker. He oversees the majority of the city’s departments and people, and has served as acting mayor.
Anchorage has given Bill so much -- and he's ready to keep paying it forward.
