Litchfield seeking CFO opportunity

By William Hoover
Anvil Herald Correspondent

City Manager Jeff Litchfield laid his cards on the table, informing city leaders he has enjoyed his time in the spotlight leading the city, and making improvements to Hondo’s financial and economic management process. But he said he was looking to return to being a behind-the-scenes chief financial officer.

In an email sent to city and community leaders on Wednesday, Dec. 10, Litchfield let it be known he was one of the finalists interviewing for the CFO position with the City of Grapevine that day, and would be interviewing for the Round Rock CFO position today (Thursday).

He said the finalist field is generally the top four to six candidates, so there is no guarantee he would be offered either position. If he is not hired in Grapevine or Round Rock, Litchfield said it could take him a year or more before he finds the job he desires. Litchfield has so far served as Hondo’s City Manager for just over two years.

“If you hear a rumor the city manager is looking for a job, you can share that ‘yes, it is true,’ and that it was his decision because he wanted to return to the finance area where most of his professional training has been centered,” said Litchfield in the email sent out Wednesday.

“As long as I remain Hondo City Manager, I will devote 100% of my energies to continue to do the things that make the city a better place to live,” he said. “I really like Hondo, think it has a great future and it might even be the location we chose to live when we retire. But, for now, I believe my talents can be best used by another organization.”
