Interim County Administrator Tom Anderson can now drop the "interim" from his title.

 

Today the Deschutes County Board of Commissioners unanimously chose Tom Anderson for the permanent position.

 

Board Chair Alan Unger says they had 33 applicants and whittled those down to five well qualified candidates.

 

"We determined that tom's set of skills equaled the others; and that his knowledge and awareness of Deschutes County was an important factor too."

 

Unger says Anderson been working for the county for over 15 years; most recently as the Director of Community Development.
