The city of Antioch is preparing to say goodbye to another community leader as City Manager Ron Bernal has announced his intention to retire at the end of the year.

Bernal has been involved in Antioch’s municipal government since 1998 when he joined the city as the assistant city engineer. He was appointed assistant city manager in 2016 before being unanimously voted into the role of city manager in March of 2017 after his predecessor, Steve Duran, was fired by the Antioch City Council.

“I’m living proof that opportunity lives in Antioch. I’m proud to call Antioch my home and want to see it continue to be a place where everyone can live a life of purpose and opportunity in peace, safety and community,” Bernal said of his tenure. “If I could do it all over again, I’d choose Antioch.”
