Horst’s resume

At a meet-and-greet last week with fellow candidate Nicole Lance, Horst told the audience city administrators should “astonish” the public with their clarity and openness. He also touched on the relationship between the city manager and the city council.

“The truth is, if you don’t get along, there is no success,” he said.
