Long-time City Attorney Roger Lubovich to Retire On June 30

It is with regret but warm wishes that I announce the retirement of Roger Lubovich as City Attorney for the City of Bremerton, effective June 30, 2021. He has had a distinguished public service career and plans to spend more time with his wife Cathy, four children and his eight grandchildren.

Roger has not only had years of outstanding service, but he has helped shape direction of our city attorney’s office and provided valuable counsel over the years. I want to thank Roger for the huge commitment he has made to the City and his dedication to the people of Bremerton. 

He joined the City of Bremerton as our city attorney in 2002. His responsibilities include managing the city prosecuting attorney’s office, the City’s civil division legal counsel, city clerk, risk management and human resources. In 2009, he performed administrative mayoral duties for six months following a vacancy in the position. Prior to working for the City of Bremerton, he held the city attorney position for the City of Kent for nearly 12 years and served as city attorney for a number of villages and towns in Alaska. Early in his career, he was employed by the Boeing Company as a purchasing agent, as fuel manager for Wien Air Alaska, and worked for the late Senator Warren G. Magnuson in Washington D.C. 

Roger grew up in Kitsap County and went to local schools and universities. His education includes attending Olympic College where he obtained an Associate Degree in Business Administration. He has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration from the University of Washington, a Master of Business Administration from Seattle University and a law degree from the University of Puget Sound School of Law (now Seattle University). Additionally, he received flight instruction at the Bremerton National Airport where he obtained his pilot’s license. 

Through his years with the City of Bremerton, our long-time city attorney had many accomplishments. He assisted in the Bremerton tunnel completion under Washington Avenue for offloading motorists from the ferry from Seattle, made the move to purchase the current Municipal Court Building, contributed to residential and commercial developments in downtown and assisted in the annexation of the Puget Sound Industrial Center (PSIC) area. He has also taken part in recent efforts to enhance the community, including supporting new building developments and creating a process to demolish derelict homes in neighborhoods. 

Roger also shared a few comments about his time as city attorney: “I have really enjoyed working for the City of Bremerton, especially with my staff as well as other staff of the City. I have also enjoyed working with many community members on various community projects. I am very attached to Bremerton. I liked coming to work every day and have had countless good memories over the years. I’m enormously proud to have been part of the changes that have happened in the City. My sincere thanks go out to Mayor Wheeler, the City Council, and to everyone who has helped make my time here exceptional.” 

The City of Bremerton will begin the recruitment process for the position over the next few weeks. 

I want to add that many people that know Roger recognize him not only for his ability to communicate and resolve issues, but also for his personal lifetime values as a devoted husband, father and grandfather. I appreciate all that he has done for the community and his time with the City will have a lasting impact.
