Panama City Commission Interviews City Attorney Applicants

Posted: Updated:

Three candidates were interviewed in a special meeting at Panama City City Hall Tuesday. Each candidate was given an opportunity to sell themselves to the commission.

Applicants have big shoes to fill as the currently City Attorney Rowlett Bryant has served in his position for more than thirty years.

"Our firm is a general civil law practice with a focus on local government law, real estate, land use, and civil litigation," said Chuck Stafford from Timothy P. Sloan, P. A.

"I have taken particular pride in representing the city in the role that I've played here over the past six years," said Haley Stark from Bryant and Higby Law Firm. "I'd like to continue that.

"I've always thought that I would rise above and ultimately be city attorney."

"Some issues that Burke and Blue dealt with Bay County they aren't the same issues," said Nevin Zimmerman. "But, they are issues that were tough policy decisions and Burke and Blue was able to assist in bringing them about."

The Panama City commission will have further discussion and put the decision to a vote at the next commission meeting on Tuesday March 12th.
