City Manager T.C. Broadnax is resigning from the City of Dallas following a “suggestion [from] the majority of the Dallas City Council.”

Broadnax submitted his notice of resignation to the mayor and city council on Wednesday.

“My last day of employment will be Monday, June 3, 2024,” he wrote. “This decision was incredibly difficult for me, both professionally and personally, due to the many relationships I have developed during my tenure as City Manager.”

“It is my hope that my departure provides the City Council an opportunity to reset, refocus and transition to a new City Manager that continues to move the City forward and will allow for a more effective working relationship with the Mayor and City Council,” he said.

Broadnax said he will work with staff over the next several months “to plan for a smooth transition of projects, initiatives, and responsibilities in advance of my departure.”

The city manager’s resignation came “at the suggestion of the majority of the Dallas City Council,” according to a news release, per The Dallas Morning News.

“After careful consideration, it has become apparent that the relationship between the mayor and the city manager has not been conducive to effective governance and the advancement of Dallas’ interest,” the statement said.

“The dynamic between these key citywide figures has unfortunately hindered the realization of our city’s full potential and it is imperative we address this issue head-on in order to move forward.”

Nearly two years ago, the city council considered firing Broadnax from his position but then allowed him to keep his job after postponing his performance reviews, as previously covered by The Dallas Express.
