Kansans praise Scott Moore in Texas newspaper

Former Mayor Carlos Mayans praised Wichita’s interim city manager, Scott Moore, for handling tumultuous political times in City Hall with “quiet demeanor,” according to a profile by the Corpus Christi Caller-Times.

Moore, who has received nearly universal praise since taking on a higher-profile position as interim manager, is one of two finalists vying for the city manager vacancy in Corpus Christi, a city of 285,507 on the Texas coast. In an interview with The Eagle, Corpus Christi Mayor Henry Garrett said Moore has a “good shot” at the job.

Meanwhile, Corpus Christi’s former city manager, Skip Noe, is one of five finalists for the job in Wichita. The Caller-Times reports that “some council members criticized Noe for communication problems and mismanagement of the city’s water problems.”
