Final City Manager Candidate

Posted: Updated:

The third and final candidate to receive an in-person interview for the position as Minot's city manager is a familiar face.

Cindy Hemphill is the current city finance director.

She had her interview and public presentation today.

As with the previous two finalists, she was given five minutes to introduce herself, and ten minutes to talk about how to manage a city in a boom-time economy.

Hemphill says the city must make sure it encourages diversity in development, to keep from being overly dependant on one industry for economic health.

She says it's important to show legislators and state leaders that the city deserves oil impact funds to help deal with the growth.

(Cindy Hemphill, Candidate for City Manager) "We have to build those partnerships, we have to make them understand what this economic boom is doing to us and that we need the support of the governor and the state and local legislators to bring more oil impact money into the community of Minot because we want to have a sustainable city after the economic boom is over."

Hemphill, Greg Sund, and Kevin Degenstein are the three finalists who have now interviewed and made presentations.

You can see their presentations in their entirety at the City of Minot's YouTube page - just go to the city's web page for a link.

The full city council will choose a new city manager at its meeting in just over a week.
