Here’s The Scoop…Top Job Brings Them Running…Including A Familiar Name…


The previous City Manager was let go…3 days from retirement….(previous post)…

Now they are down to 12…using a headhunter…

Did Dania Beach read about Pompano Beach’s headhunter experience….in the Fl. Sentry/J.P. Bender Series…”The Wizard of Pompano”?…

Included in the final 12…for Dania Beach….is former LBTS Town Manager Baldwin…who has been Manager in Lake Worth since his resignation here…

May,2007  Town Topics…

‘Town Manager Robert Baldwin
submitted his resignation to the
Town, effective May 6th. In a letter to
the Town Commission,Baldwin
thanked the Commission and a
number of former elected officials for
their continued support and help.
Baldwin has been on annual leave
working as the Interim City Manager
in Lake Worth for the past several
weeks. Baldwin was hired to work
as Town Manager in Lauderdale-By-
The-Sea in August 1995’

Interestingly……..Mr Baldwin also was in the running for the Pompano Beach City Manager position …shown in …Part 1..of the Bender series…(which includes LBTS in his resume)…

The five finalists were, in alphabetical (and definitely not in the most qualified) order, which interviewed with city commissioners and senior staff were:
Robert R. Baldwin, who served as Lake Worth’s interim city manager and was the town manager in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea. He holds a master’s degree in public administration.’

In today’s Miami Herald…

‘City commissioners will pick a handful of finalists for interviews and hope to make a decision by the end of January.

Among the applicants: Bud Bentley, a former Fort Lauderdale assistant city manager and past Broward County official; Robert Baldwin, former assistant city manager in Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood and current Lake Worth city manager; and Russell Benford, West Park city administrator.’

But in his latest run for City Manager…Mr. Baldwin …per the Herald…made a 2 year “skip”…excluding his 2 year LBTS Town Manager stint..

more to come….
