Headhunter: Delray commission's reputation influenced low city manager candidate turnout

Delray Beach is one step closer to finding the city’s next manager.

During a workshop meeting Tuesday, the city discussed a short list of five candidates interested in the top job and narrowed the list down to three finalists.

Before commissioners whittled the list down, headhunter W.D. Higginbotham Jr., the senior vice president of The Mercer Group, said the search yielded what he called a low total of just 36 candidates.

Commissioner Shelly Petrolia asked Higginbotham Jr. if the low turnout had anything to do with the reputation of the commission. The commission is often divided on hot topics in the city and has shuffled through several city managers over the past few years. Currently, the city’s fire chief is serving as interim city manager.

“Did you get anything from any of the candidates or anywhere that people were afraid to come here because of our reputation?” she asked.

Without hesitation, Higginbotham Jr. said, “Yes.”
