While at the City, Boekamp also served in several special assignments, including representing the City Manager as Council Liaison for a period, performing as transportation liaison for key national events such as Super Bowls, and overseeing the Petco Ballpark Infrastructure Project.

"She is one of the best-known and most respected engineers and industry leaders in San Diego, and even nationally in some transportation circles. Those of us who know Patti recognize that her skills, personality, and cooperative approach make her ideal for her new role. We’re excited that she’ll be involved in major projects and our regional marketing program."
