Reported by Scott Saxton - email

COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Former Whiteville town manager Josh Ray said he is about to take a similar job in Aztec, New Mexico.

Ray said he is negotiating with the town next week with the hopes of taking over as town manager in early January.

Ray, 30, was let go by the town of Whiteville earlier this year in a close vote.  He ran unsuccessfully for a council seat this past November.

Ray told the New Mexico newspaper that he was let go for political reasons.
