Lynnwood Today is reporting that Lorenzo Hines, current finance director for the City of Edmonds who has been embroiled in an ongoing controversy with two Edmonds City Councilmembers, may be the City of Lynnwood’s new finance director.
According to Lynnwood Today, Mayor Don Gough has announced that Hines is his choice for Lynnwood’s finance director position. The Lynnwood City Council is expected to make the final decision on Hines’ appointment at tonight’s council meeting.
The council interviewed five finalists for the position last week, Lynnwood Today said.
“From all the information, opinions, comments by staff, panel members, and community members and the city council, and based upon my review of materials and interviews, there is a very strong consensus about who our next finance director should be,” Gough said.
The City Council wants to confirm the new finance director soon so there can be some overlap time with interim director Pat Dugan, Lynnwood Today said.
