Kent Davis didn’t leave Anniston in a huff or on a whim. Retired U.S. Navy rear admirals don’t go off half-cocked; not the good ones, at least.
Davis resigned almost two years ago as Anniston’s city manager because of life twists and job choices. He agonized over the decision, he’s told me more than once. But a Department of Defense opportunity in Montgomery was too juicy to decline, even if it removed his family from a city he adores.
