“I’m very excited to be coming to Lubbock. This community is at a point of tremendous growth and has a bright future. I’m impressed by the leadership within the City of Lubbock, and I am humbled to be a part of it,” Atkinson said. “My family and I are anxious to become part of this community.”

“We are happy to welcome Mr. Atkinson to the City of Lubbock,” Mayor Dan Pope said. “I congratulate the City Council on completing this important and thorough process. We believe Mr. Atkinson is coming at a pivotal time, and we feel his experience, leadership and roots in West Texas will benefit our City for years to come.”

According to the City of Lubbock, Atkinson will start his duties with the city on Monday, December 12, 2016.
