A big day at SRTC today. All three candidates for the Executive Director position will be here today for a series of interviews. I’ll report back, but it sounds like they’re all well-qualified for the position. Two of the candidates are already managing Metropolitan Planning Organizations within Washington State and another at an Arizona MPO.
There was talk yesterday about each of the staff members adopting a ‘character’ for the interviews (someone has a tic, another person speaks only in pig latin, another asks repeatedly if the candidate has a cat, etc.) but in the end we decided we shouldn’t scare off people who are this qualified. They could have our livelihood in their hands somewhere down the road.
