Letitia Shelton was the Deputy City Manager and Chief Operating Office for the city of Charlottesville from 2019-2021 (1 year 8 months). She was named to that position in late July 2019 by then-City Manager Tarron Richardson.  She had worked with Richardson in his last job as city manager of DeSoto, Texas.
Concern over her hiring without community input prompted Council to consider a charter amendment to require more oversight in the future. The council chose not to make that decision. 
Shelton announced her resignation on January 7, 2021 as Charlottesville's Deputy City Manager - Chief Operating Officer. Her last day will be February 19, 2021. Shelton began work as Financial Director, City of Virginia Beach on February 25, 2021.
