The city manager of Longview will not be moving on to the metro-plex. Longview city manager Ricky Childers was among six finalists for the same position for the city of Irving, but has not been selected for the job. Irving officials announced Friday that a Dallas city employee was chosen for the job. Childers was contacted about the job by a search firm in December. Childers has been city manager of Longview for seven years.
