The White Springs Town Council has announced the top five candidates out of a pool of 25 who applied for the position of town manager to replace Bob Farley who is retiring June 1.
The top five candidates are:
- Vince Akhimie from Lakeland, Fla.
- Judith Jankosky from Lady Lake, Fla.
- Dennis Murphy from Punta Gorda, Fla.
- Jennifer Vigil from Panama City, Fla.
- Larry Strickland from Marietta, Ga.
Council members scored each applicant on 14 different criteria and then gave their completed score sheets to Farley on Friday, April 11. Farley then computed all the scores and presented the list to the council at their April 15 meeting. The position pays $32,500-$55,000 depending on qualifications.
“Council directed me to contact the top five for interviews, and based on their responses (since some may already have jobs), work my way down the list until we get five candidates,” said Farley.
