City manager list down to five
by Andrew Walgamott
WOODINVILLE--Last week, the city council pared down its list of city manager finalists to five. They are Mark Fitzgerald of Burlington, Wisconsin, Kenneth Hartung of Woodbury, Minnesota, Richard Leahy of Mukilteo, Washington, Robert Stockwell of Alamogordo, New Mexico and Dorothy Tryk of Keizer, Oregon.
Woodinville city staff and councilmembers will begin interviewing the candidates September 18. The process is expected to take an entire weekend. Candidates will be given a tour of Woodinville Thursday afternoon and will later dine with the city council.
Friday, department heads will interview the applicants followed by a community reception in council chambers from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday, the council will spend interviewing candidates.
Last April, ex-City Manager Joe Meneghini resigned. Roy Rainey has been at the helm in their interim.
