Newly hired Nags Head Town Manager changes his mind, will stay in Mississippi

Michael Silverman.

After accepting the Nags Head Town Manager job earlier this month, Michael Silverman has decided to remain the City Manager of Pascagoula, Mississippi.

Silverman, a North Carolina native, was appointed the new Town Manager by the Nags Head Board of Commissioners with a start date of July 1.

Greg Sparks has served as Nags Head’s interim Town Manager since last year, when Cliff Ogburn left to become Town Manager of Southern Shores.

“We are deeply disappointed by this turn of events,” said Nags Head Mayor Ben Cahoon. “However, once Interim Town Manager Greg Sparks’ term ends May 31, Deputy Town Manager Andy Garman will serve as our interim town manager.”
