The Village of Estero hosted a reception for the six finalists for the Village Manager position this past Thursday, September 10, at the Estero Fire Rescue Administration Building. It gave the Village Council an opportunity to meet the candidates face to face, and allow the candidates to introduce themselves to the public in attendance.

The week before, Colin Baenziger & Assoicates, the firm hired by Estero to conduct the search for Village Manager candidates, presented the finalists to the Council. The six finalists are: Marsha Segal-George, Mark Kutney, Maria Lasday, Steven Sarkozy, Tami Hanlin, and Chris Malin.

Speaking with the candidates at the reception, it was apparent that what attracted each of them to the job opening was the potential they saw for the Village’s future.

“They’re the bomb,” Segal-George said. “They have the funds to do something really good with their town, and they have an understanding of all the parts a local government has to play to make a great community.”

“I like the ability to take something new and move it forward,” Kutney said. “Estero is very interested in putting a great emphasis on future development.”

“They’re a blank slate,” Sarkozy said. “I’m interested in helping to create a dynamic new city here.”
