Dallas city council appoints interim city manager

March 1, 2024

Kimberly Bizor Tolbert will become interim city manager of Dallas when T.C. Broadnax leaves office in June. The Dallas City Council voted 12-2 in favor of Tolbert’s promotion during their Feb. 27 meeting. Tolbert is the current deputy city manager and will assume the city manager’s duties until a permanent replacement is found.

Broadnax submitted his resignation last month after seven years in the role, reportedly at the suggestion of the city council.

Tolbert began her career with the city of Dallas as an assistant to the city manager before leaving in 2008 to pursue other opportunities. She worked her way up to director of strategy and innovation for the North Texas Tollway Authority, where she worked for 11 years before rejoining the city of Dallas.

“I am honored to accept the Dallas City Council’s appointment as interim city manager,” Tolbert said in a statement. “I remain committed to working in partnership with the Council, staff, residents, and businesses, to ensure a seamless and efficient operation of city government during this transition.”

While some councilmembers expressed their concern on how quickly Tolbert was appointed to the interim position, she has received a large amount of support from her peers, her community Broadnax.

“I support the City Council’s decision and believe that Kimberly Bizor Tolbert is more than qualified, capable, and committed to lead Dallas through this transition,” Braodnax said in a statement. “I am confident she will work in partnership with the City Council and lead our talented and dedicated staff to serve our residents.”
