Public services director says 'no' to interim administrator position

Published: Tuesday, April 30, 2013 at 12:22 PM.

Corbin told the board he would not accept an interim county manager position, but would be happy to serve as a contact person to fill in until a county administrator can be hired.

“I just want to have a job to come back to,” Corbin said. “I’d be glad to help the employees and serve the board.

“When I hired on with the county in August of 1979, it was the best move I ever made,” Corbin said. “My main thing is the employees. The employees need some kind of structure, someone they can count on.”

Gothard asked Corbin why he didn’t want to serve as an interim county administrator. ”What part of the county administrator duties are you uncomfortable with?”

“I didn’t think it was going that way, I thought I was going to be a point of contact,” Corbin said.

“Would you be comfortable with the duties of county administrator?” Gothard asked.

“David’s abilities go way beyond being a county administrator,” Abbott said to Gothard. “I can’t believe the pressure you are putting this man under. In fact, maybe I shouldn’t say this, but you have applied so much pressure to him that he has filed a complaint against you.”
