City manager candidates have range of government experience

July 15, 2005

Albany-The City Commission interviewed five city manager candidates for five hours again Friday.

They got started at 8:30 a.m. Each candidate interviewed in front of the entire commission. Thursday, they had individual interviews.

The next step is to narrow down to three, but they commission doesn't want to make a decision too quickly.

"It's like a fine wine," said Mayor Willie Adams. "If you do it too quickly you end up with vinegar. We're going to do it so whenever we make that final choice we'll have somebody who will hopefully be with us for a while and who will buy into our plans for the future."

Here's what we know about the five candidates so far: there are four men and one woman; three are white and two are black; they are all from out of town; some are former city and county managers, public works director, capital projects director and an administrative services director.
