Board selects county administrator finalists; meet and greet planned

Published: Thursday, March 21, 2013 at 11:55 AM.

The finalists will attend a reception at 6 p.m. next Wednesday at the Emerald Coast Convention Center hosted by the Fort Walton Beach, Destin, Niceville-Valparaiso and Crestview chambers of commerce. The event is open to the public.

The finalists will have individual interviews with commissioners the morning of March 28, followed by group interviews at a 1 p.m. commission meeting that will be open to the public.

“The reception is an opportunity to see how they network and if they’re comfortable in a crowd and how they interact with the public,” Baenzinger said to commissioners. “In the one-on-ones in the morning, you have a chance to test the chemistry. The afternoon session you get to see how they react in a commission setting.”

Commissioners agreed to decide on an administrator at their April 2 meeting in Crestview.

The new administrator will replace Jim Curry, who is scheduled to retire April 19.


Northwest Florida chambers of commerce groups have scheduled a meet and greet with the administrator finalists It is 6-7:30 p.m. March 27 at Emerald Coast Convention Center, 1250 Miracle Strip Parkway SE, Fort Walton Beach. An introduction to the candidates and light hors d'oeuvres are planned. For details call 244-8191.
