As Town Administrator, Patti Garcia is the chief executive officer of the Town, appointed by the Board of Trustees. The Town Administrator is responsible for the execution of Board of Trustees policies, directives, and legislative action. The Town Administrator, and all the employees reporting to her, are also responsible for making professional recommendations to the Town Board of Trustees within their areas of expertise and responsibility. 

Town policies are developed in accordance with the values of the organization, with particular emphasis on community, fairness, and transparency. All residents and businesses in Wellington have access to their elected and appointed officials.

All Town staff report to the Town Administrator. It is the Town Administrator's responsibility to integrate the talents of all department heads within a common vision that enables the organization to deliver service based on the Board of Trustees direction. This management team works together to create an environment that encourages innovation, creativity, and growth. The Town Administrator's Office encourages management and every employee to hold each other accountable for achieving excellence. 

Many organizations external to the organization help to shape the community and set the path for the future. The Town Administrator is responsible for coordinating relationships with other agencies, such as federal, state, county, and other municipalities, other non-profit organizations, Town of Wellington Boards and Commissions, and businesses and other private agencies.

We value our relationships and partnerships with all these organizations.

The Town strives for excellence in its services. We are here to serve the public and view that as a trust and a calling, not simply a job
