The City of Las Cruces announces the selection of Sonya L. Delgado as the new Assistant City Manager.

Delgado's promotion is a great example of employees working their way up in an organization that promotes and supports individual growth.

Delgado was born and raised in Las Cruces. She joined the City of Las Cruces in 1996 as a basketball scorekeeper and summer recreation team member. She has more than 27 years of experience in the Parks and Recreation field and has served numerous positions within the department. She has been a proven leader as shown with her involvement with the recent General Obligation (GO) Bond projects including the creating of additional multi-use trails, a new splash pad, and new multi-sport complex.

Sonya is an experienced and valuable member of our management team. We're excited for her to expand her leadership role at the City and help take our organization into the future.

Ms. Delgado earned her undergraduate degree from New Mexico State University (NMSU) in the field of Psychology. She also earned her master’s degree in Sociology from NMSU. Working her way up from scorekeeper, she has served in several positions within the department including Aquatics Manager, Meerscheidt Recreation Manager, Recreation Administrator, Community Service Director, and most recently Parks & Recreation Director for six years prior to being promoted to Assistant City Manager.

“Strong team members build strong communities. I am grateful for the opportunity to take on this new responsibility and continue developing future City leaders. As reflected in my own journey, working my way from a part-time, entry level position to Assistant City Manager, I realize the importance of career learning and development,” Delgado said.

Please join us in congratulating Ms. Delgado on her new position as Assistant City Manager.
