One of Berkeley’s neighborhood services liaisons, Michael Caplan, got a new job Thursday when he was named acting manager of the city’s Office of Economic Development. 

The announcement came in the form of a press release from Assistant City Manager Arietta Chakos. 

Caplan replaces Tom Myers, who held the post for the last four years. Myers had announced his planned resignation in August, ending a 13-year career with the city.
