Thank you, Robert. I have thought of a Senior or Principal Management Analyst, though like in similar positions in planning it may infer supervision of other (or, another) employee(s), to which there is currently no junior. However, this type of re-title could also infer a higher skill level or set, I presume. If everybody stays in place here until my retirement in several years (including myself), she will make a fine Assistant/Deputy Manager, and will then be also be age appropriate. I was a city manager at 35, and as a result of my experience, line employees and department heads don't seem to respect you until you've hit 40. I hope times are changing in that respect.
