Iowa City’s former city mananger is a candidate for the same position in two different towns.

Michael Lombardo is one of five applicants for city manager in Albert Lea, Minn., according to the Albert Lea Tribune. He is also vying among three hopefuls to become the first town manager of Hamilton, Mass, the Salem News reported.

Lombardo was fired from his position in Iowa City in April 2009. Since then, Iowa City city councilors have been quiet since his termination, he said in an interview for the position in Massachusetts that it was difficult to know what made them unhappy, according to the Salem News.

He cited the fact that his predecessor was in office for more than two decades and his colleagues may have had trouble dealing with a newcomer.

Hamilton Selectwoman Jennifer Scuteri told the Salem News she was impressed by the large number of letters of recommendation Lombardo received from those he had worked with during his stint in Iowa City.
