Alex’s career in public service began as he worked on a public works maintenance crew. He worked his way up through the ranks to his position with us in Cape.
“I was very impressed with the City of Cape and their leadership staff. I am very excited to join the City’s team and be a part of such a great community. I look forward to meeting everyone and learning as much as I can working with staff and community members,” said McElroy.
