Gonzalez Gets $200,000 Severance Package

On the city council agenda the item was listed under miscellaneous; "Consider a resolution and severance agreement with Tommy Gonzalez." An aptly fitting category for a negotiation as varied as the characters involved. Tommy Gonzalez, securing a severance package from a city council that ended his endeavors to be city manager.

The total amount - $200,607.73 A combination of vacation, sick leave, and 6 months salary.

The process took nine hours, with Gonzalez supported by his wife and parents in the room with him. The mayor characterized the ordeal as long but amicable. And, in a bit of irony, the person serving as attorney for Gonzalez throughout the negotiation process - David Langston, former mayor for the City of Lubbock.
