Albany   --  We should know in just a few weeks who Albany's next Downtown Manager will be.  

Three finalists interviewed for the ADICA director and Downtown manager position Thursday. Reggie Taylor from Illinois, Dan Buie from Maryland, and Albany's own Clifford Porter, who works for the Albany Chamber, are vying for the job.

Assistant City Manager James Taylor says background checks for the three are currently being conducted and a top finalist could be announced as soon as next week.

"We have insured that we included ADICA, ATI, other community members and the city in this process because we all have a vested interest in the success of this individual," Taylor said. 

If all goes as planned, two weeks after a top finalist is announced, an offer will be extended.  Taylor hopes to have the new downtown manager in place within the next four to six weeks.
