Finalists named for city’s civil service commission

Friday, April 6, 2018 by Jo Clifton

The City Council Audit and Finance Committee, minus its chair Ellen Troxclair, on Thursday selected five applicants to interview for the Municipal Civil Service Commission. The applicants to be interviewed include the two incumbents, Lottie Dailey, a retired theologian, and Michael Murphy, general counsel to the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 520. The new applicants include attorney Christopher Ritter, Ronald Morgan Jr., Travis County chief deputy clerk, and retired Austin Community College professor Michael Petrowsky. Mayor Pro Tem Kathie Tovo, who chaired the meeting, said she expected the committee to interview the applicants during the committee’s next regularly scheduled meeting but added that it might have a special called meeting for the interviews. Attorney Pamela Lancaster chairs the commission and the other members include Melissa Rogers and Teresa Perez-Wiseley, the vice chair. Troxclair is on maternity leave in anticipation of the birth of her second child.
