Six candidates for Maricopa’s city manager position will be interviewed Monday by city council members, city department heads and community stakeholders.
The Sacramento-based recruitment firm CPS HR Consulting has conducted a nationwide search for the city’s top post.
Executive Recruiter Stuart Satow said Friday 45 people had applied to the position. While he could not give names, he said three of the six candidates invited to be interviewed have “Arizona experience” and three are from other areas of the country.
Former Maricopa City Manager Brenda Fischer left the city for Glendale’s city manager position in July. Trisha Sorensen, who previously held leadership positions in Mesa, has been acting as interim city manager.
