Waco’s new city manager has an optimistic way of viewing problems that should serve the community well.
Asked about the impact the ongoing crisis at Mount Carmel will have on Waco, Jim Holgersson, who is only Waco’s third city manager in 21 years, said when Waco eventually emerges from the crisis the community could actually benefit from all the attention.
