Murray County Board looks to hire a new County Administrator
The board elected to offer the position to Carolyn McDonald following Wednesday's interviews.
MURRAY COUNTY — The Murray County Board of Commissioners met in special session Wednesday to interview finalists to fill the position of County Administrator. Three finalists were interviewed, but it was Lyon County Human Resource Director Carolyn McDonald who was offered the position following a brief deliberation by board members.
McDonald has been with Lyon County for 10 years and prior to that, she served as the circulation supervisor for Southwest Minnesota State University, a position she held for over a decade. She has a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in Business Administration and a Human Resources Certification.
Current Tyler City Administrator Stephine LaBrune, and Southwest Regional Development Commission Energy Planner Jason Walker were also interviewed for the job.
The position of County Administrator has been open since late February, when former administrator Tom Burke was terminated from employment following a series of closed sessions.
