Leander is located about twenty-seven miles north of Austin, Texas.
The council interviewed five finalist – Cagle; San Angelo Assistant City Manager Elizabeth Grindstaff; Peoria, Ariz. Deputy City Manager Susan Thorpe; Abilene City Manager David Vela; and Elgin’s interim city manager Greg Vick, before deciding on Cagle.
The council cited Cagle’s experience in Duncanville and his consistency.
“Duncanville is a wonderful place, with lot’s of positives, and that tends to get lost at times,” said Cagle. “People really need to stop and realize exactly what Duncanville has.”
Cagle is schedule to start in Leander on December 1.
Cagle sees this as a great opportunity, but Duncanville has had as much an impact on him as he’s had on the city. “We will miss so much about Duncanville, the places and the people.”
