The process of selecting a new CAO has begun with the appointment of the Mayor and two city councilors to the selection committee.
Chief Administrative Officer Malcom White is set to retire in January 2024 – he’s been with the City for 35 years. The selection of a new CAO is a huge undertaking.
Mayor Matthew Shoemaker will be joined by newbie councillor Angela Caputo and long-time councilor, Marchy Bruni. Caputo received the most votes by her council colleagues to sit on the committee.
It’s the very same selection process used to pick the last two CAO’s
The City will use a recruiting firm to assist in collecting possible candidates, with a short list narrowing down the search. The selection committee ultimately recommend a candidate leading to council meeting in open session that could lead to an appointment of the new CAO.
