Bobkiewicz Withdraws from Tacoma City Manager Post

On May 13, City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz sent a letter to the City Council, saying, “Upon reflection, I have decided to withdraw myself from further consideration for the position.”

Rather than selecting a new City Manager from the three candidates they had interviewed that previous week, the Tacoma Council added a fourth candidate, their Acting City Manager.

Mr. Bobkiewicz’s letter, which he also sent to local media outlets, also said, “I am not yet ready to leave Evanston. As attractive an opportunity as the Tacoma position is and as much as my wife and I were interested in being near her parents in the area, Evanston is still where our hearts and my professional passions live.

“This experience has reaffirmed my commitment to the City of Evanston.  I do not plan to apply for any other City Manager positions in the near future.  Instead, I look forward to assisting Mayor Hagerty, the City Council and outstanding City staff serving the residents of Evanston.”
