City manager happy in Sisters position
Last updated 11/16/2021 at Noon
When he was hired three years ago, the Council knew Cory Misley was a young man on the way up, and that he wouldn’t be in Sisters forever. But for the present, he’s here, fully engaged, and happy.
The city manager position for which he recently interviewed in Hood River was filled by another candidate. Misley, who recently received his annual review from the Sisters City Council, wants the residents to know he loves Sisters, has a great staff, an engaged City Council, and is very happy in his current position.
Right now the search is on for a new principal planner to replace Nicole Mardell, who recently left to take a new position with the State.
Misley told The Nugget, “When it is time for me to take a new position, I will be sure there is plenty of time to make a smooth transition and I won’t leave any unfinished projects or loose ends.”
A brand new addition to Misley’s household is providing a lot of fun for him. Nine-week-old Aura, a German shorthair pointer, just moved in last week and has captured the spotlight — and the couch.
“She’s a sweetie” Misley said. “Just a lot of energy per puppy usual.”
Misley said Aura will probably spend some time with him at work in City Hall so watch for Misley and Aura out and about in town.
