We'll begin with a likely setback for city council -- which hoped to name a new city manager by November first.
News-7 has learned the man considered to be the front-runner for the job has turned it down.

Keith ... th short list had come down to two candidates.
All along city council was careful not to reveal those candidates' names.
But today we confirmed that Pat Salerno -- the man whom a majority of city council members favored -- will NOT take the job
(rollcue: take the job)

[SUPER=03-Sunrise, FL]


of city manager. Salerno currently is the city manager in Sunrise, Florida.
That's a suburb of Fort Lauderdale.
And that's where the National Hockey League's Florida Panthers built a 20-thousand seat stadium.
Salerno got the credit for bringing the National Car Rental Center to Sunrise.
It's a stadium that's expected to bring the town more than 40-million-dollars in surrounding development.
That looked good to Roanoke.
But negotiations with the city broke down.
Salerno didn't say why.
He and the city had been at odds over his salary.

[Live=Scott Full/Microwave]
[SUPER=05-Roanoke;]


On the phone Salerno would say only one thing about the Roanoke job -- quote -- "I will not be accepting the position."
The other finalist -- we're told --is an assistant city manager from another city in Virginia -- but we're also told city council may now consider other candidates.

((KEITH QUESTION)) Does this open the door for Jim Ritchie to get back in the running?
