I Should Apply for County Manager too

Job ApplicationIt is interesting watching County Councilor David Madore’s efforts to see acting County Manager, Mark McCauley ousted from his position instead of verified to become permanent County Manager.

Interesting in that Madore is on record highly praising Mr. McCauley after the former County Administrator, Bill Barron retired shortly after Sen. Don Benton was hired to head the County Department of the Environment in 2013.

It was then County Commissioner Madore that took to his facebook page praising Mr. McCauley saying, “I know Mark well and am very pleased to have such a great choice to run the day to day operations of the county. Mark has served as a competent leader heading up of one our largest departments, general services.
