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.”
