Casey hopes to lose interim tag

FRISCO – Interim town manager Theresa Casey announced Tuesday that she is throwing her hat into the ring for the position of town manager.

Casey has held the position of interim town manager since November, when the council fired former town manager Alan Briley. Casey served as assistant town manager from August 1999, until Briley’s firing.

“I believe that I am the right person to work with the council and staff to continue to carry the town forward,” Casey said in a letter to the town council and the head-hunter agency conducting the town manager search.

“Currently, I am working on several projects of importance to the town, and I sincerely want to bring these projects to culmination.”

Casey cited the town’s way-finding project and economic development efforts as her top interests.

She has also participated in discussions and negotiations on water rights for the new hospital set to be built near Frisco.

Prior to her service to Frisco, Casey worked for the town of Silverthorne for six years as the recreation and culture director and public works director.

“During my 23 years of service in local government, I have worked for seven managers,” Casey said.

“Each of these managers had a distinctive style and managed with varying degrees of competency. I have certainly had good mentors and learned from their accomplishments. At the same time, I have taken lessons from the mistakes of others.”

Resumes for the town manager position are due March 31.

The head-hunting agency, Rainguet & Associates, will rate candidates and make a presentation to the town council on April 13.

The council will conduct interviews and make a selection in May.

“I focus on quality of service in all aspects of town operations,” Casey said.

“I promote citizen involvement in planning and implementation of programs and facilities. Foremost, I am a team player who understands the importance of working together in order to achieve the goals of the community.”

Casey’s responsibility of overseeing the town manager search process will fall to Frisco Police Chief Tom Wickman.
