5/16/2013 6:00:00 AM 20 apply for Kingman city manager seat KINGMAN - Nearly 20 people applied to replace Jack Kramer as the next city manager by the end of Monday's closing date, according to Mayor John Salem. The hunt for Kramer's replacement was handled by the League of Arizona Cities and Towns, which offers executive search services at a much less expensive rate than do private headhunting firms. "The league is reviewing applications now and they'll recommend five or six candidates to us," said Mayor John Salem. The City Council will go through those recommendations near the end of the month, he said. The next city manager will earn between $115,000 and $130,000 a year, depending on his or her qualifications, plus benefits. The city manager reports to the mayor and city council and will have a $35 million budget and 329 full-time employees for fiscal year 2013, which begins July 1. In its request for applicants, the city requires candidates to have a minimum of seven years experience in municipal management and a degree in public administration. Skills in project management, economic development and long-range planning also were required. Kramer, a city employee since 1979 who worked his way through the ranks before he was named city manager in August of 2007, will retire effective July 1.

I guess I am too old. IMO, Mohave County & the City of Kingman, needs to demand the people they have elected to handle this position themselves until our economy improves in this area. The Board of Supervisors and the City Council should be capable of doing this job until the taxpayers can afford to pay a "manager".
