A certificate of recognition was presented by the School of Public Affairs to Aden Hogan, City Manager of Evans, Colorado, who is retiring in September. At a gathering in Evans on Aug. 17, 2016, Randy Harrison presented the certificate to Aden on behalf of SPA and Dean Paul Teske.
Aden Hogan is one of local government’s most outstanding leaders, having served as president of both the Colorado Municipal League and the Colorado City and County Managers Association. The event was full of testimonials and stories of a career filled with accomplishments, professionalism, and leadership locally and nationally.
Aden Hogan, Jr., was appointed as the Evans City Manager in December 2006; he served as Town Administrator in Parker for 10 years prior to going to Evans. Before his tenure in Colorado, Aden was Assistant to the City Manager for Oklahoma City. Following the bombing of the A. P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19, 1995, Aden served as one of the directors of the city’s Multi-Agency Coordination Team during the 17-day response to that disaster. He recently guided Evans through Colorado’s disastrous floods, providing leadership for all the impacted communities during a difficult recovery — a recovery continuing today.
A profile of Aden was published in The Tribune on Aug. 17, 2016.
Aden holds a Master’s degree in public administration from the University of Colorado Denver and a Bachelor’s degree in business administration from Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction. Aden was honored in 2014 with the Leo C. Riethmeyer Outstanding Colorado Public Administrator Award. The award is presented annually by the CU Denver School of Public Affairs and the Pi Alpha Alpha Honor Society.
