Clark County Council selects Shawn Henessee as new county manager
Vancouver, Wash. – The Clark County Council unanimously approved a motion today authorizing Council Chair Marc Boldt and Interim County Manager Jim Rumpeltes to develop a contract with Shawn Henessee to become the next county manager.
“We believe Shawn’s strong background in local government and his character make him a good choice for county manager,” said Boldt.
Henessee currently is the city administrator of City of Pleasant Hill, Missouri, a position he has held since 2017. He served as county administrator for Marinette County, Wisconsin, from 2015 – 2017. He has extensive experience with county and local government departments and functions. He holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from Wichita State University, a master’s degree in political science from University of Kansas and a juris doctor from University of Missouri.
Henessee, along with finalists Keith A. Regan, managing director of the County of Maui, Hawaii, and Rick Rudometkin, county manager of Eddy County, New Mexico, participated in a moderated forum yesterday. The forum can be viewed on the CVTV website, www.cvtv.org/.
