"I started my career in local government more than three decades ago because it was and is foundational to me that my work makes a difference in people’s lives, particularly those with the greatest needs," said Agle. "I am so grateful that my time with the City has supported my passion for making a difference in the community where I live. I have been blessed to have worked with colleagues who are talented, dedicated, and caring. Santa Monica is incredibly fortunate to be supported by such passionate and capable public servants who are dedicated to enriching the experience of those of us who live here."

During his time with the City of Santa Monica, Andy has led teams whose accomplishments include:

"We’re grateful for his steadfast service and we’ll miss his positive, solution-oriented presence."

Agle’s last day will be December 15. 

Starting December 16, Assistant Director of Community Services Danielle Noble will become the Acting Director. Noble has served as Assistant Director of Community Services since the 2020 restructuring and was the Assistant Director of the Community and Cultural Services Department since 2017.
