Covina has chosen former acting San Bernardino City Manager Andrea Miller for its top position.

She was the only person interviewed for the job, according to Covina officials.

She would replace former City Manager Daryl Parrish, who retired in December. Police Chief Kim Raney has filled in on an interim basis.

“I am thrilled and privileged to be able to serve such a great community,” Miller said in a statement. “Covina has been able to maintain its small-town personality in the Los Angeles urban region and is poised for great things as it moves to strengthen commerce and expand shopping and dining opportunities for residents and visitors.”

Miller currently is the executive director of the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments.

The city could not provide a copy of the offer to her as its only been made verbally, according to the city clerk.

“We decided that in lieu of a recruitment process that we would think about all of the different city managers that we had met over the years and that we felt would fit best in Covina,” Mayor Peggy Delach said. “We thought that might be a little different approach, but it might be better approach for us.”
