Connecticut’s Bremby pulls out of Fort Worth city manager hunt

By Scott Nishimura

Roderick Bremby, the Connecticut social services commissioner, has pulled himself out of the running for Fort Worth city manager.

Mayor Betsy Price said Bremby had pulled himself out of consideration Tuesday. He was one of three finalists, along with David Cooke, a former county manager from North Carolinia; and Penny Postoak Ferguson, a deputy county manager in Johnson County, Kan.

“We’re obviously disappointed that he will not remain as part of this process, but we understand and accept his decision,” Price said. “We will move forward to interview the remaining two candidates as scheduled this Thursday.”

Bremby told the Hartford Courant newspaper in an interview last week that he appreciated the opportunity to interview with Fort Worth, but had no intention of leaving Connecticut right now.
