And Then There Were Nine

Nine semi-finalists are now in the running for Davenport city administrator. Mayor Frank Klipsch says last week the search committee looked over the 34 applications the city received, and narrowed the list to nine.

From there, the committee will meet early next month (6/6), and choose 3 to 4 finalists and invite them to come to Davenport for interviews in July. Only then, he says, will any of the names be disclosed.

The city is looking for a permanent replacement for Craig Malin who resigned last summer. Since then his assistant, Corri Spiegel, has been serving as interim city administrator. 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
