Former Lubbock official sued in Irving, called "petty tyrant"

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock's former Interim City Manager is accused of being a "petty tyrant" according to the Dallas Morning News. The News quotes a lawsuit filed by the Las Colinas Group against the City of Irving and its current City Manager, Tommy Gonzalez. As of Monday night, the Group is the former developer of an entertainment center to be built in Irving under a public/private partnership.

The lawsuit accuses Gonzalez of interfering with the project because the company did not hire a friend of his, and did not donate money to the school his children attend.

The Irving Mayor is quoted by the Dallas Morning News as defending Gonzalez and saying he is not a tyrant and did not sabotage the development.

Gonzalez was the Interim City Manager in Lubbock back in 2003 and an Assistant City Manager prior to that.
