Scottsdale City Council has its man.
The local governing board Thursday, Dec. 8 named Jim Thompson, most recently the city manager at the city of Casa Grande in Pinal County, as its successor to Fritz Behring, who during his short tenure at Scottsdale gained esteemed praise from his peers lauded for his ability to problem solve and build consensus.
“I think it is an excellent opportunity,” said Mr. Thompson in a Dec. 13 phone interview.
“Scottsdale is one of the premier communities in the state of Arizona and being a part of a team that has displayed excellence over the years — that is something I would love to do.”
