    Jackson: Interim appointments have a way of lasting a long time.

    Town I moved from had an Interim police chief for five years.

    cheapest place to find a replacement is to hit the colleges. (I recommend the University of Idaho but I may be bias) I know from experience that these "kids" come out with big ideas and need a place to prove themselves, and are desperate for a job.

    Kevin, Mr Hood is the INTERIM manager.

    This is a very interesting selection, but if Rad has faith in Hood then I won't speculate too much. The bigger question is, How does the CoL find a Manager that has both Parks & Rec AND Cultural Services experience? And at a reasonable salary.

    I bet Bob Johnson is fuming.

    Good luck Mr Hood. I went to college for it so I know a little what you are in for, minus the politics.
