New Mexico’s City Manager of the Year 2016 – J. J. Murphy

At a study session on April 23, 2017 Bill Hopping mentioned on of his favorite candidates for the city manager position.  Again, at the May 2, 2017 meeting he recited a list of qualifications of a particular candidate that he thought was outstanding.  In his statement he said this person was the New Mexico City Manager of the Year in 2016 so I Googled him and this is a sample of what I found on J. J. Murphy.  Based on these three articles I think we might have dodged a bullet!
