Former Lubbock Interim City Manager Tommy Gonzalez is no longer a candidate for the city manager job in San Antonio. Gonzalez interviewed for the city manager position in San Antonio but was not included with the final round of candidates.
Sheryl Sculley was the top choice until she withdrew her name from consideration late Wednesday afternoon. Sculley is currently the Assistant City Manager in Phoenix.
A proposed contract would have paid Sculley $265,000 a year, making her the highest paid city manager in the country. However, Sculley would only accept the offer if the San Antonio City Council unanimously supported it. One councilman voted against the deal, so Sculley will likely remain as the Assistant City Manager in Phoenix.
If you remember, our own City Manager Lou Fox came to Lubbock from San Antonio last year. The Lubbock City Council gave him a compensation package worth more than $258,000, which is pretty close to the amount San Antonio is offering its city manager now.
