Springfield Park Board on Schedule to Hire New Exec. Director

The Springfield Park Board says they’re right on track in finding a new Executive Director.

The district intended to have a new Executive Director selected by Thanksgiving. The board is currently going over the applications and conducting initial interviews. Board President Leslie Sgro is happy with the list of qualified candidates.

“We’re quite comfortable with where we are…very happy with the quality of resumes and packets we’ve received from interesting people.”

Sgro added that there was”an outpouring of interest” in the position. A total of 37 applications were received. Sgro indicated there is no specific number they’ll widdle it down to following meetings scheduled on Monday and Tuesday evening.

Sgro said that the list will, of course, continue to remain confidential at least through the first few steps in the interview process.
