Mayor's Office

The mission of the Mayor's office is to uphold the standards set, for the office, in the City Charter. The Mayor shall (1) preside at all meetings of the Commission; (2) lead, guide and develop (in conjunction with the City Commission and others) short and long range growth and development plans and goals for the City; (3) represent the City and promote its interests at the local, county, state and national levels and in economic and industrial development; (4) be the head of the City for all ceremonial and spokesperson purposes.

It is the mission of the Mayor's office to see that Hobbs reaches its goals in our ever changing and growing community. I will continue to work hard, along side our City Commissioners and Manager, to see that Hobbs has every opportunity to continue to grow economically, enhance our quality of life and build a strong, vibrant community. With the continued support and involvement from our community members, Hobbs will continue to grow and prosper.

City Manager's Office

As the City Manager for the great City of Hobbs, I am responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations of the City and for bringing the vision of the City to fruition. Working with our Department Heads, I make recommendations/decisions and try to provide the necessary resources for our nearly 470 city employees to carry out their duties. It is my belief that the principle reason for having any government, is to serve the people. From the police, fire, and ambulance crews, to recycling effluent water and cleaning the parks, to enforcing building codes and holding contractors to certain standards, and finally providing excellent customer service to our community, our employees work hard every day to serve the roughly 44,000 diverse people that cover the 26 sq miles of Hobbs. I am proud to work with these fine employees, to help lead this great team, and to constantly work to improve the ways that we carry out our mission of serving the people.

The above duties are only half of the story, however, because no city lives within a vacuum. If we only had to perfect the above duties, easy enough, but technology changes, buildings decay, demographics shift, etc. A community is a living, breathing life in and of itself and requires dynamic leadership to constantly keep it young. This part of my job is what I feel distinguishes average City Managers from great ones. Working alongside the Mayor and City Commission, it is my job to research other cities, understand the latest trends, and help them form and carry out a vision of growth and development for our City.

I hope I was able to briefly illustrate my job as a City Manager to you. Every day is different and has unique challenges that can never be foreseen. The job of a City Manager requires the ability to dissect the past, evaluate the present, and anticipate the future. Hard work, persistence, and ingenuity are characteristics that I pride myself, and the successes of the City of Hobbs on.
