Vicki Ballinger 10-22

Formally selected as Elephant Butte’s city manager during the city council’s October 2 regular meeting, Vicki Ballinger officially began addressing her new duties with the city Monday, October 21. A longtime resident of the community, Ballinger previously served with the City of Truth or Consequences as an administrative assistant, as well as a court monitor and coordinator with the city’s former DWI prevention program. Since leaving the community in the early 2000s, Ballinger has served in management roles for a regional mental health authority and fuel distributing firm in Michigan. She also spent several years working with a corporate law firm there, becoming a certified legal professional and an active member of the National Association of Legal Secretaries. Ballinger’s resume further includes extensive experience with IT systems and management in both the private sector and earlier in her life, as a member of the U.S. Air Force. While the past few weeks have had her focusing on relocating to Sierra County from the Phoenix, Arizona area, Ballinger said she is eager to begin working closely with city councilors and administrative staff.
