Mountain View’s next City Attorney has 20+ years of legal experience, including 14 years in local government

Mountain View, Calif. — After an extensive search, the Mountain View City Council is planning to appoint Jennifer Logue as City Attorney at their Tuesday, Feb. 8 meeting. Logue is a seasoned local government attorney and litigator with more than 22 years of legal experience, having most recently served as the Supervising Attorney over the General Government & Finance Unit in the Oakland City Attorney’s Office. Logue’s first day as City Attorney for the City of Mountain View is April 18 with an annual starting salary of $293,000.

“We were seeking a highly qualified municipal legal advisor who has strong experience with policy development and we found exactly these qualities and more in Jennifer Logue as our next City Attorney,” said Mayor Lucas Ramirez. “Jennifer has the right combination of legal aptitude, supervisory experience and strategic management of complex legal issues to help further the City Council’s vision of Mountain View as a welcoming, vibrant city that plans intentionally and leads regionally.”

The City Attorney represents and advises the Council, advisory bodies and City departments in matters of law related to City business. As City Attorney, Logue will oversee staff of four attorneys, two code enforcement officers and two legal support staff.

"I am honored to be selected to serve as the next City Attorney for the City of Mountain View,” said Logue. “I look forward to working with the City Council, Department Head team and City Attorney’s Office staff on Mountain View’s strategic priorities. I am eager to begin serving this great city with excellence, compassion and integrity.”

Logue has served as a Supervising Attorney in the City of Oakland’s Office of the City Attorney for the last three years following a promotion from Senior Law and Motion Attorney, a position she had held for seven years. She also worked for the City of Oakland as a Deputy City Attorney in litigation as well as worked as a litigation associate in private practice. In addition, she worked for the United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit, in San Francisco as a Senior Motions Attorney and a Senior Research Attorney in the Criminal Division. Logue holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Whittier College and a law degree from Georgetown University Law Center.

The position became vacant following the retirement of City Attorney Krishan Chopra in December 2021.

The City Attorney is one of three positions appointed by the Council. The City Manager and City Clerk are also Council appointees.
