Committee picks Eisenbrey for Civil Service Commission
Friday, June 14, 2019 by Jo Clifton
The Council Audit & Finance Committee on Thursday recommended Rebecca Eisenbrey, staff attorney at the Equal Justice Center, for a seat on the Municipal Civil Service Commission. Eisenbrey has considerable experience in labor law, including serving as co-chair for the State Bar of Texas’ Employment Law Task Force. Members of the committee went into executive session to interview Eisenbrey and two other applicants, John Lawrence and Paul Hafner, before voting unanimously to recommend Eisenbrey. Eisenbrey will take the seat previously held by Michael Murphy, who resigned March 8. Committee Chair Alison Alter thanked all the other applicants for their willingness to serve.
