Paducah City Officials Cut City Manager Search Down to Four

The City of Paducah has narrowed its search for a new city manager to four candidates. City officials named these finalists  for the position

Shane Horn, City Manager of Lakeland, Tennessee

Daron Jordan, City Manager of Paris, Kentucky

Trent Lovett, Superintendent (retiring) of Marshall County School District (Kentucky)

Todd Thompson, City Manager of Galesburg, Illinois

These four potential candidates will be visiting Paducah and participating in interviews with the Paducah Board of Commissioners, City Manager’s office, City’s Leadership Team and a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Community Panel today and tomorrow. Almost fifty applications were submitted for Paducah’s City Manager position. The search started when Jim Arndt announced in January his plans to move back home to Illinois to be closer to family and to open a consulting business. Arndt’s contract was extended through July 31.
