City Hires Assistant City Administrator

John Manning

John Manning joined the City of Branson as the Assistant City Administrator on July 15, 2019, working under City Administrator, Stan Dobbins.

Manning came to Branson after a successful career in the Army culminating at the rank of Colonel. His early career was spent as a Military Police Officer followed by assignments around the world as a Strategic Plans and Policy Officer.

The Assistant City Administrator position has been vacant for about 10 years. Administrator Dobbins hopes filling this position will provide for a more hands-on approach in enhancing communication between people who need help navigating City processes and the various City departments. This position will be an advocate for the community and will further transparency and the ability to respond quicker to any concerns.

“I am looking forward to being an Ambassador of our great City and helping Team Branson uphold the public trust with a focus on delivering quality services for our citizens and visitors,” Manning said.

John is married to his college girlfriend, Amy, who is also a Veteran. Their oldest son is an Army Lieutenant and their younger son and daughter are attending college at the Virginia Military Institute.
