The City of Sand Springs recently announced that retired assistant city manager Daniel Bradley was chosen as the interim city manager, effective June 1, 2020. Bradley will serve during the city council’s search for a new city manager, which is expected to last several months.
Bradley retired as the assistant city manager in 2018 after more than thirty years of service, including chief of police. Bradley will help oversee daily operations of the city, working alongside staff during a busy time of construction and development for the community.
Bradley is temporarily replacing former city manager Elizabeth Gray, who stepped down to take care of her aging parents.
In 2019, Bradley received the John M. Hess award for Outstanding Citizenship, given to him by the city council.
Bradley retired as assistant city manager in August of 2018 after 38 years with the city. He was hired as a rookie police officer in 1980 when he was 24, was promoted to assistant police chief in 1991 and police chief in 1995. He was the assistant city manager for three years before retiring.
When Bradley retired as police chief, he was replaced by current chief Mike Carter.
