Dangerfield, who has held this position for just over four years, has brought national attention to Mesquite with the Paralong Drive competition last year. He stepped into the Director position after Rich Bohne had vacated the spot to accept a position elsewhere in 2011. Prior to this role, he was better known as the controversial Economic Development Director.

“Nick (Montoya) will be the Interim Director of Athletics and Leisure Services. We wish Bryan the best in his future endeavors,” said City Manager Andy Barton in a phone call Wednesday morning.
