What’s Happening at City Hall: T.C. Broadnax Enters His Second Year as the Dallas City Manager
The City of Dallas has a council-manager form of government, in which the City Council makes the policy and sets the budget, but hires a professional city manager to carry out day-to-day administrative operations and to implement the policy decisions made by the City Council. Since becoming the Dallas City Manager in February 2017, T.C. Broadnax has dealt with a wide range of issues affecting the city – recently including dockless rental bicycles, payment for school crossing guards, responsibility for repairs to the Margaret McDermott bridge, and the issues raised by the Communities Foundation of Texas report on segregation and economic opportunities in Dallas.
Join us on May 14 for a presentation by City Manager Broadnax on the issues and opportunities his office is handling and what he believes the future holds for our city.
T.C. Broadnax began serving as Dallas City Manager on Feb. 1, 2017. Previously, he served as City Manager of Tacoma, Washington since 2012. He also served as Assistant City Manager of the City of San Antonio and in Pompano Beach, Florida. Broadnax has more than 24 years of local government management experience.
As Dallas City Manager, he presides over an annual budget of $3.1 billion. He is also responsible for 39 city departments and nearly 13,000 employees. He works towards transparency and accountability in every city he has served. His approach for a robust performance management system is a “one-stop shop” for customer service.
Broadnax earned his bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Communications at Washburn University, Topeka, KS and a master’s degree in Public Administration from the University of North Texas. He is married and has four children. A native of Kansas, he is a sports enthusiast and enjoys a quick game of basketball in his spare time.
Guests are always welcome. We request a per-guest fee of $15. If a guest joins as a member on the day he/she attends a meeting, the $15 fee is credited against the dues fee. For 2018, membership is $100 per person. Please RSVP Here
