Malibu City Council Hires Ruth Quinto as New City Treasurer
The Malibu City Council appointed Ruth Quinto of Quinto Consulting, LP to serve as the City’s Treasurer during the City Council meeting of November 9, 2020 at the recommendation of the Administrative and Finance Subcommittee
“Although the pandemic has delayed so much of the nation’s life, the City continues to operate, and effectively managing the City’s finances and investments is a critical component of our ability to be able to serve the community,” said Mayor Mikke Pierson. “So I am pleased that we were able to find such a well-qualified candidate to fill the role of City Treasurer.”
