De'Carlon Seewood, an East St. Louis, Illinois, native who served as Ferguson's assistant city manager from 2001 to 2007, was chosen as city manager from a field of more than 40 applicants nationwide, Ferguson Mayor James Knowles III said on Wednesday. The city council approved Seewood's contract with Ferguson on Tuesday evening, Knowles said. Ferguson, a mostly black community of 21,000 residents, endured civil unrest last year after St. Louis County prosecutors announced that a grand jury had decided not to indict Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson in the August 2014 shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
