BLOOMINGTON -- The search for a new McLean County administrator may be delayed while a candidate juggles other interviews.
The search committee met earlier this week with Assistant County Administrator Bill Wasson, but a meeting with Patrick Thompson has to be rescheduled.
Wasson and Thompson, a former Hamilton County, Ohio, administrator, are the finalists for the job being vacated by County Administrator Terry Lindberg at the end of this month.
McLean County Board member Paul Segobiano, chairman of the search committee, said Thompson has told the committee he's a candidate for several jobs.
"He is a very fine candidate so it's no surprise that there are other options for him," Segobiano said. "We have no reason to go forward until we know more from Mr. Thompson."
However, board Chairman Matt Sorensen still hopes to have a candidate to present at the board meeting at 9 a.m. Tuesday at the Government Center, 115 E. Washington St.
"We have two great candidates, so no matter what happens, McLean County won't lose," Sorensen said.
The committee wants to have a candidate hired by the time Lindberg leaves on May 31.
