Only seven people applied for the open administrator of elections position – a stark contrast to the more than 40 applications submitted two years ago.
As it stands former administrator Greg Mackay, who was recently fired from the job, interim administrator Scott Frith, former county commissioner Victoria DeFreese, former Knox County school board Chairman Steve Hill, consultant Mark Hancock, attorney Clifford Rodgers and Leslie Petta, who owns a cleaning business, applied for the job, which will pay at least $95,000 a year.
The five-member Knox County Election Commission on Wednesday will interview three of the applicants and more than likely make a decision then on who will get the job.
The other day I posted about the early interest and put up the resumes.
Since then, Mark Hancock made it official and submitted his information. Click here for it.
So, too, did Leslie Petta. Click here for her application.
On a side note, Commissioner Cameron Brooks sent me his top three selections. He chose: (1) Greg Mackey, (2) Clifford Rodgers, and (3) Scott Frith.
Update: Apparently Commissioner Bob Bowman has selected Clifford Rodgers, Scott Frith and Victoria DeFreese.
