New City Manager Chosen

(New Buffalo, MI) - A new City Manager has been chosen in New Buffalo.


Darwin Watson was the City Manager in Benton Harbor from 2014 to 2019.


He’s been involved in real estate and other things like consulting ever since.


Watson said the potential of the lakefront community is one of the things that really peaked his interest in the job.


One of his goals is to create a more year round economy in the city driven primarily by summer tourism.


Watson said one of the keys is finding ways to draw more people here during the winter.


“I want to be able to be part of that and make it the gem that I know it can be,” he said.


The final terms of his contract are in the process of being finalized.


Former City Manager Dave Richards passed away in December from complications of COVID-19.
