Brad Newton Terminated as City Administrator at the City of Presidio, Texas
Presidio, April 5, 2022 In a regular council meeting on Monday, April 4, the Presidio City Council voted to terminate City Administrator Brad Newton “with good cause” in a 5-0 vote. No further details on the termination were announced at the meeting. Newton had worked in different positions for the City of Presidio over the past 10+ years as economic development director, executive director of the Presidio Municipal Development District, and city administrator on two separate occasions. He played important roles in several major infrastructure projects for Presidio including the wastewater treatment plant, natural gas service to the industrial park, sanitary landfill profitability, expansion of the international bridge, and most recently, overseeing the return of timely annual financial audits for the city in 2021, after an eight-year lapse.
Mayor John Ferguson thanked Newton for his service and stated that he was opposed to the termination, which was voted upon unanimously by the city council.
“I want to sincerely thank Brad Newton for his many years of service to the City of Presidio. He leaves behind an impressive list of achievements, many of which will be building blocks for increasing opportunity in our city for years to come,” Ferguson stated.
“As a non-voting member of the city council, I was opposed to Mr. Newton’s termination, but I respect the process and the decision which has been made by the city council,” Ferguson concluded.
