The top local stories this afternoon from KERA News: The Dallas City Council has picked a new city manager – pending a vote on Wednesday. T.C. Broadnax is currently the city manager for Tacoma, Washington. He also spent five years in San Antonio as assistant city manager. Mayor Mike Rawlings said Broadnax’s experience tackling poverty in Tacoma will benefit Dallas, and that his outside perspective will allow him to deal with difficult issues in the city, like the troubled police and fire pension fund, the future of Fair Park and the city’s crumbling infrastructure. The current Dallas city manager, A.C. Gonzalez, is retiring next month after three years on the job.
