Recreation and Park Department Spokeswoman Lisa Seitz Gruwell will be leaving city government after just over a year on the job, department General Manager Phil Ginsburg announced today.Speaking at this afternoon's Recreation and Park Commission meeting, Ginsburg said Seitz Gruwell plans to take a new job as an executive at the Democracy Alliance, a coalition of wealthy donors that supports liberal causes. The group was founded in 2005 with major backing from billionaire George Soros.
It is unclear when Seitz Gruwell will end her tenure at the department. "My first job will always be that of a mother, and I will be at the parks almost on a daily basis with my kids," she said at today's meeting.
