Flagler Beach Commissioners Pick 12 to Interview for Manager (Updated)
FlaglerLive | August 12, 2010
The Flagler Beach City Commission this evening picked 12 candidates to invite for interviews. The 12 were whittled down from a list of 35 during a commission meeting tonight. That short-list was itself down from the 140 applicants who applied originally. Each commissioner had reviewed the applications and drawn up a list of 10 names. See the chart below marking the 12 candidates who’ll be invited.
Commissioners have not picked interview dates. They’ll do that later this month, subsequent to background checks of the candidates. One of the candidates on the interview list, Jim Coleman, has been offered the city manager’s job in Avon Park and is in negotiations there. Should Coleman not take the job, another candidate on the Flagler Beach short-list of 12, Gregory Wood, is Avon Park’s second choice.
On Tuesday, FlaglerLive published that chart of 35 names.

The top 10 candidates each commissioner and the mayor picked individually appear in the charts below. The two charts provide the same information, arranged two different ways to make it easy to see patterns or look at each list on its own merits.
Mayor Alice Baker participates in the process (and drew up her own list) but she does not vote when it comes time to picking the short-list for those candidates who will be interviewed. Nor will she vote when it comes time to picking a manager. While her voice matters, as it carries some political weight, her picks were eliminated when it came time to choose the final 12.
Bernie Murphy, the outgoing city manager, logs his last day on Sept. 30. Commissioners hope to have the position filled by then, but have already spoken of the possibility, in Commission Chairman John Feind’s words, of an “interim-interim city manager.”
