Erik Hanberg, a Metro Parks commissioner, is leaving his day job as executive director of the City Club of Tacoma.
Hanberg announced today that he has given notice to the City Club board, offering to stay on through Aug. 31 to ease the transition.
He said he plans to help his wife, Mary Holste, with her design business, finish a sci-fi novel and spend time with his newborn daughter, Hannah.
“Fatherhood has a way of making things very clear, and these past couple of months with a new family have helped me realize it’s time for me to start a new chapter,” Hanberg wrote on his blog.
Hanberg has been at the City Club for three years.
