Newport residents invited to meet the candidates for Newport Recreation Sports Coordinator Friday, 5pm at the Rec Center
Just like City Hall extended the welcome mat to Newport citizens to meet and evaluate for themselves the three finalists for Newport City Manager, City Parks and Recreation Director Jim Protiva is also throwing out the welcome mat to Newport citizens to meet the four candidate finalists for city Sports Coordinator. Whoever is selected will be filling some rather large shoes (literally) of Liam Hughes who left the post recently to take the Parks and Recreation Director’s job in Sister’s Oregon, just north of Bend.
Protiva says they’ve narrowed the very long list of applicants to four individuals. They are Michael Cavanaugh of Decatur, Georgia. Daniel Friese of Citrus Heights (near Sacramento), California, Quincy Bejester of Jacksonville, Illinois and Sander Weis of Toledo, just east of here off Highway 20!
Protiva says the public meet and greet with the Sports Coordinator candidates will begin Friday, the 25th, at 5pm in Rooms 124 A&B at the Recreation Center. They are the large rooms just off to your right as you enter the center’s front door, behind City Hall.
