Seminole Council Chooses Five Finalists for City Manager Job
The finalists will be in town next week (June 25, 26) for job interviews and to meet Seminole council members, residents and business owners.
SEMINOLE – At least on paper, a township manager from Pennsylvania appears to be the front runner to replace Seminole’s long-time city manager.
Anthony Hamaday, township manager of Broomall, PA, was the unanimous choice to be flown in for an interview by the seven-member Seminole council during a special meeting Tuesday (June 16). Four others were also chosen to be interviewed:
- Mark Kutney, who served for three years as city manager for Loxahatchee Groves on the east coast of the state.
- Calvin Peck, who has served as the village manager of Bald Head Island, NC, since 2006.
- Ann Tony-Deal, who is director of administration for the Florida Veterinary Medical Association and the former city manager of Haines City.
- Ernest Zmyslinski, who has served as the finance director in Warwick, RI, since 1999.
Council members also chose two alternates who will be interviewed if one of the finalists backs out: Mike Bonfield, former St. Pete Beach city manager, and Terry Stewart, most recently the interim manager of Delray Beach and former town manager for Ft. Myers Beach.
The five finalists will meet the council, city residents and business owners Thursday (June 25) night at a public meet and greet. They’ll have one-on-one interviews the next morning with council members. That afternoon (June 26), the council will hold a special meeting to again interview them. That special meeting will be open to the public. Council members hope to make a selection at their June 30 meeting.
Whoever is chosen will replace Frank Edmunds (pictured). Edmunds has 20 years on the job and is Seminole’s first city manager. He is scheduled to retire in August.
