Albany--  A revamped search for a downtown manager yielded more potential candidates for the job.

City leaders went back to the drawing board after two previous finalists decided they didn't want the job. They now have four new final candidates including one from Albany.

Telephone interviews will be conducted on September 13th. That's when the list will be narrowed down to one or two.

"Our hope is to get somebody who can hit the ground running and someone who has commitment and passion about economic redevelopment and downtown and it would be nice to have someone from Albany who has a personal commitment to the community as well," said Albany Assistant City Manager James Taylor.

After telephone interviews, the finalists will be interviewed in person by a panel hopefully in a couple of weeks.
