New Opportunity Arises For Former Lubbock Interim City Manager Tommy Gonzalez

Lubbock's former interim city manager is a finalist for the city manager position in San Antonio.

Tommy Gonzalez interviewed with the San Antonio City Council for the job this week. He's one of five finalists, competing against people from Iowa, Fort Worth, Dallas and Phoenix.

Tommy Gonzalez has served as Harlingen's City Manager for one year. In that time, he's created a strategic plan and improved the city's bond rating. NewsChannel 11 spoke with Gonzalez Friday. He says this is the third job offer he's had and will most likely accept the job, if he's the sole finalist.

The job would be quite a big jump. He currently manages 500 employees and a city budget of $64 million. San Antonio has 12,000 city employees, with a $1.5 billion budget.

You'll recall, Gonzalez left Lubbock when the city council chose Lou Fox for city manager instead of Gonzalez. He received a $200,000 severance package from the City of Lubbock. The San Antonio City Council is expected to make its decision by next week.
