Fredericksburg official leaving for Richmond job

John G. Walsh, Frederickburg’s property maintenance code official in the Building Services Division, informed city officials this morning that he is resigning to take a position with the city of Richmond.

Walsh’s last day is May 9, according to his letter of resignation. He expects to begin his Richmond job on May 12.

Walsh had been with the city for 13 years. He notified Stephen J. Smallwood, the director of Building and Development Services, in writing this morning.

In the letter, Walsh said he was leaving for a “greater opportunity” and added that, “I can honestly say that this has been the best job I have had to this point of my life.”
