Council Picks Firm to Find Next City Manager

Release Date: 

The Hermiston City Council has picked The Prothman Company to help in a national search for its new City Manager to replace Ed Brookshier, who will retire at the end of 2014 after 23 years at the helm of eastern Oregon’s largest city.  A replacement for Brookshier is expected to take up to six months to put in place once the search process starts.

“Selection of a City Manager is the most important thing this City Council will do for a long time,” said George Anderson, City Councilor.

Brookshier has served as Hermiston’s City Manager since 1991.  He has more than 40 years of municipal administration experience, and has been honored by the League of Oregon Cities with the Herman Kerhli Award, which is given for, “exceptional contributions to City Government in Oregon that produce lasting benefits for the local community.”  He is also one of just 35 ICMA Credentialed Managers in Oregon.
