Belmont, CA – Belmont City Manager Greg Scoles announced today that Brigitte Shearer will be the City’s new Parks and Recreation Director.  Brigitte participated in very competitive recruitment process and was found to be the best fit for Belmont.  She is a seasoned leader with a wide range of experience and will be a great addition to the senior management team.
