City Council has just voted to appoint Patrick Duhaney as the next City Manager of Virginia Beach, effective July 20th.
After our past city manager’s resignation, we as a City Council delved into several discussions about what we’d like to see in our next city manager – integrity, trustworthiness, and competence. We conducted a national search, and throughout our rigorous interview process, we were collectively very impressed with Patrick Duhaney. I am confident that he will serve Virginia Beach with the utmost professionalism. Being a Council-Manager form of government, the role of city manager is vital for day-to-day city operations and setting a positive tone for our community.
I believe the City of Virginia Beach has a bright future, and hiring Patrick Duhaney as our city manager is a new, refreshing step in a more positive direction. I look forward to working alongside him for our great city.
