[Source: Scott Wong, Arizona Republic] — Alton Washington, Phoenix’s No. 2 city staffer and considered by some the leading candidate to replace retiring City Manager Frank Fairbanks, said Tuesday that he planned to follow his longtime boss into retirement next month.  Washington, 55, said he did not apply for the city-manager post.  But if the City Council does not appoint a new chief executive by Fairbanks’ Nov. 5 departure, Washington said he would stay on as acting city manager

“I would not leave this organization in the lurch,” Washington said in an interview in his 12th floor City Hall office.  “I would delay any final decisions with my retirement until a new city manager has been selected.” [Note: Read the full article at Alton Washington retiring as Phoenix assistant city manager.]
