District 7 Administration Deputy Says Farewell
by  Judy Gish
Issue Date: 07/2008

Jim Hammer, the Deputy of Administration who guided the construction of the District 7 Headquarters Building and the relocation of more than 1800 Caltrans employees, said goodbye to Caltrans on June 13 to pursue opportunities in the private sector.

Hammer was known for his competance and also his kindness, not to mention his cheerfulness and great sense of humor (and, of course, his wife's pies). At a going away party where many came to wish him well, he said, "All this time, I have not just been coming to a job, but a family." 

His family will miss him.
