After several months and a nationwide search, the city of Naperville on Friday announced that Finance Director Doug Krieger was picked as the next city manager, replacing Peter Burchard, who left his post in mid-December of 2007.
Other local officials seeking the position included City Manager Pro Tem Bob Marshall, who will now return to his assistant city manager position, and Management Services Director Don Carlsen.
What do you think of the selection of Krieger for the post? Are you surprised the city didn't pick Marshall, who had filled the role since Burchard's departure? Do you think the nationwide search was necessary to find a candidate who already worked for the city?
