City Council Names Interim City Manager

City Council Names Interim City Manager

Late Thursday evening the Lubbock City Council named Tommy Gonzalez as Interim City Manager. This decision followed the announcement by Bob Cass earlier in the day that he was retiring as City Manager on April 30. Gonzalez will work closely with Cass through the transition period and will fill the interim position while recruiting a new City Manager takes place.

“Although Bob Cass is leaving us a big pair of shoes to fill,” said Mayor Marc McDougal, “we are confident that we have selected the best person to serve in the interim position. Tommy has been with the City for 12 years, and he has an amazing list of accomplishments to his credit.”

Gonzalez was educated in the Lubbock public schools, attending Parkway Elementary School, Alderson Junior High School and Lubbock High School. He earned a Bachelor’s degree in government from Eastern New Mexico University and a Masters of Public Administration from Texas Tech University.

Gonzalez was the first president of the Ports-to-Plains Coalition and still serves on its advisory board. He is also serving as Legislator Director for Ports-to-Plains. Named an Assistant City Manager in 2000, Gonzalez had oversight of the following departments: Community Development, Public Health, Animal Services, Civic Centers, Library Services, and Parks and Recreation.

Additionally he is serving as liaison to the Citizens Advisory Committee.
