County Official a Finalist for Wisc. Job

Bill Reynolds, Washtenaw County’s deputy administrator who has been on paid medical leave since early April, is one of three finalists for a county administrator job in St. Croix County, Wisc., according to a report published Friday in the Hudson Star-Observer.

On Monday, May 9, Washtenaw County administrator Verna McDaniel announced that Reynolds had been on medical leave since April 8, and was expected to be out for at least the next few months. [See Chronicle report: "Deputy County Admin on Medical Leave"]

Reynolds has been on the job in Washtenaw County just under a year – the county board of commissioners approved his hire at their June 2010 meeting, and he started work on June 21, 2010, with a salary of $138,000. He was McDaniel’s first hire, following her promotion to county administrator in May 2010.
