Raleigh names new interim city manager


Late Thursday afternoon, Perry James was named to the post.

James has worked for the City of Raleigh since 1982 and is currently the city's Chief Financial Officer.

Last month, the city council fired longtime City Manger Russell Allen. They said they felt it was time to get a fresh set of eyes on the job.

Allen's final day is July 1.

The search for a permanent new city manager is expected to take more than six months.
