Getting To Know Goldsboro’s New City Manager

Goldsboro City Manager Tim Salmon

Goldsboro’s new city manager is on the job.

Tim Salmon started his duties as Goldsboro City Manager at the beginning of May.

The community had the opportunity to meet Salmon during a welcome reception at the Goldsboro Event Center last week.

During an interview with Goldsboro Daily News, Salmon says, before coming to Goldsboro, he was flying for the U.S. Marine Corps since 1982.

Salmon served as commanding officer for Marine Corps Air Station New River in Jacksonville, N.C., where he was, in effect, city manager over 17,500 military personnel and their families and civilian employees.

Since starting as city manager, Salmon has been meeting city leaders and department heads, and he joins the City of Goldsboro as budget season is getting underway.

Long-term, Salmon says he wants to make Goldsboro the standard for public services in North Carolina.

Salmon is a retired U.S. Marine Corps colonel who comes to Goldsboro with over 30 years of leadership and management experience.

The new city manager says he understands and hopes to improve the close relationship between the city and Seymour Johnson Air Force Base.

Salmon says he and his wife, Annette, figured the Goldsboro area was a natural fit, with three of their four children stationed in North Carolina.

Salmon, a New Jersey native, has a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science from the U.S. Naval Academy and a Master of Science degree in National Resource Strategy from the Industrial College of the Armed Forces.
