City Manager's Office
Though the city manager is appointed by City Council, the City Manager’s Office is made up of non-political employees much like any other office. The employees in the City Manager’s Office oversee city operations and processes while acting as a clearinghouse for information both requested by and submitted to City Council.
The City Manager’s Office exists to keep the city running, regardless of who wins an election.
David Cooke became Fort Worth’s city manager June 30, 2014, following a national search.
