Lakeland commissioners oust city manager Chris Thomas

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Lakeland commissioners voted to oust city manager Chris Thomas on Tuesday night.

Mayor Wyatt Bunker suggested Thomas for the city manager position in November 2013.

Thomas' dismissal comes after one year on the job, after questions in recent months about his job performance.

Thomas tweeted Tuesday night: "God has closed the door as city manager for Lakeland but I know he has great plans ahead."
