GLENDALE, Ariz. -- A former assistant city attorney for Glendale will now serve as the city's lead attorney.

Michael Bailey officially starts his position Wednesday after being appointed by the Glendale City Council.

Bailey comes on after several city councilmembers asked then-City Attorney Craig Tindall to resign in February, according to the Arizona Republic.

Tindall has since taken a position as general counsel for the Phoenix Coyotes.

Bailey, who worked seven years as city attorney for Surprise, was chosen from three finalists.

Before his stint in Surprise, Bailey was assistant city attorney in Glendale for five years. During that time, officials said he specialized in issues involving land use, real estate and government contracts.
