RE: Recommendation for Dr. Gary J. Lysik
I have had the pleasure of knowing Dr. Lysik since shortly after he came to work for the City of Calabasas, as its CFO. I have always found Gary to work at the highest levels of integrity and ability. His resume justly points out all of the wonderful achievements he has had as CFO for the City. What it cannot do is adequately convey just what an excellent job Gary does in his position. Gary, through his professionalism, has personally molded the financial management of the City into a well-oiled machine, while refining our reporting and assuring the City an AAA credit rating. He has helped the City weather lean years and has achieved a high level of fiscal transparency.
I also consider Gary to be a friend and know that he will apply all of his generous abilities to the tasks that his new position might bring. Having been a Council Member liaison to the budget, I was fortunate to be able to work closely with and observe Gary, and I am able to say without reservation that his experiences and acumen will serve him well in any new position.
