Tony Goehring Appointed as Parks and Recreation Director


City Manager Dixon Flynn has appointed Tony Goehring as Parks and Recreation Director for the City of Lodi.  Tony has been serving as Interim Director for the Department since former Director Roger Baltz resigned for a position in Florida in June of 2003.  Mr. Goehring served as the City’s Economic Development Coordinator for eight years prior to taking on this new role.  Although successful in developing a strong economic development program, Tony’s interests and passion were still rooted in sports.  He has B.A. in Physical Education and Physical Divergencies from U.C. Santa Barbara and an M.A. in Secondary Teaching in Education from S.F.S.U.

“Tony has done an outstanding job as Interim Director and I have confidence that he will continue to do an excellent job, just as he did as Economic Development Coordinator.  What’s more, he’s well respected by his peers.”
