The Game – 261 – Mike Callagy

He started off as a cop, now he’s directing traffic at a 2.8 billion dollar enterprise known as San Mateo County. The Game is government, the Game is on.

Welcome to the Game. In November, San Mateo County Manager John Maltbie will retire, and Mike Callagy will take over management of a county government with an annual budget of 2.8 billion dollars and 5,500 employees. A native of San Mateo County and a resident of Foster City, Mike began his career in public service as a police officer in San Mateo. Over a 29-year career, he rose to the rank of Deputy Chief before joining the county in 2013 as one of the three deputy county managers. In 2016, he was named assistant county manager, and on July 6, the county Board of Supervisors selected him to be the next county manager.
