Committee recommends four candidates
Following a day of interviews with the five finalists for the position of City Manager, the Citizen Search Committee narrowed their choice to four late Thursday by recommending Rickey Childers, Tommy Gonzalez, William Pupo and John Watson to the City Council. Kathy Rice, former City Manager in Waco, was the fifth finalist and was not recommended by the Search Committee.
The City Council will interview candidates tomorrow (Friday) and will begin deliberations on their choice for the City's chief executive officer.
The following is a very brief look at the Committee-recommended candidates' careers and education:
