Winnowing an unusually large field of 54 candidates, Casitas Municipal Water District directors chose a handful of finalists for the agency's top administrative post on Monday after the sometimes divided board agreed on who to get to know better.
“It was a great meeting because there was a lot of unanimity,” board President Russ Baggerly said. “There was an extraordinary number of candidates, and the qualifications of the candidates were extraordinary.”
The résumés of the 26 most qualified candidates were summarized for the board Monday, recruiters said. A final selection is expected by early June, they said.
