Steve's bio

Steve Bryant has served in a volunteer role since 2008 as the State Liaison to the International City/County Management Association for the state of Oregon. After his retirement from a 31-year career with the city of Albany, Oregon, he worked part time as a Project Manager for the Oregon Solutions and Oregon Consensus Programs at the Hatfield School of Government where he facilitated collaborative multi-organizational projects including a number of successful projects that were designated by Oregon's Governor. He also served as the Interim Legislative Director and Interim Executive Director of the League of Oregon Cities. Under his watch as Albany’s Planning Director and City Manager, the city established three National Register historic districts, built two fire stations, an award-winning City Hall, a multi-modal transportation center, and greatly expanded its parks system. He also led efforts to develop multi-sector partnerships resulting in a new county Fair and Expo Center, a “state of the art” multi-jurisdiction water treatment plant, and the alleviation of a large health hazard area through the construction of an area-wide sanitary sewer system. Other accomplishments including establishment of a downtown urban renewal district and Willamette River waterfront revitalization plan. Steve has been awarded the Herman Kehrli Award for Distinguished Service to Oregon Cities and a Distinguished Alumni Award by his alma mater, the University of Oregon.

Now in full retirement mode, Steve and his wife of 42 years, JoLee Bryant, spend much of their time in Central Oregon enjoying a wide variety of outdoor activities.  In recent years they have particularly enjoyed traveling to many of the nation’s National Parks.
