CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Willie Carden, currently the director of Cincinnati Parks, has withdrawn his name from consideration to be the next Cincinnati city manager.
City councilman Chris Seelbach tweeted on Friday, "Mayor Cranley just let me know Willie Carden has withdrawn his name for City Manager. Disappointing. I would have voted to confirm."
