DALLAS – Tacoma, Washington City Manager T.C. Broadnax has officially been named the new Dallas City Manager.
The topic of picking a new city manager was the focus of a Dallas City Council closed door meeting today. At one point there was a break in the meeting but Mayor Mike Rawlings reconvened the session and said he would make an announcement about the next city manager later.
Just after 11:15 a.m. the Mayor’s Office issued the following statement –
“I am pleased to announce that the Dallas City Council will vote this Wednesday on whether to appoint T.C. Broadnax as our next city manager.
Mr. Broadnax, who has been the city manager in Tacoma, Washington, since 2012, previously worked for five years as a San Antonio assistant city manager. He also obtained a Master’s of Public Administration from the University of North Texas in 1993. So he is no stranger to our state and region.
On behalf of the Dallas City Council, I want to thank all of the candidates who interviewed for this position, especially Dallas Assistant City Manager Mark McDaniel. Mark has been a tremendous leader for our city since his hiring in 2014.”
Four outsiders were competing against Dallas assistant city manager Mark McDaniel for the top job. The five candidates met with council members and the public earlier this week. City staff also took the finalists on a tour to Dallas Love Field and other city facilities on Monday.
