The Deming Headlight is reporting that the commissioners Tuesday narrowed the field to two local applicants, two regional applicants and two out-of-state applicants.
The two local applicants who made the cut for Luna County manager are, alphabetically, David McSherry and Ira Pearson.
The regional applicants are Matt Lucas of Las Cruces and Michael Smelker of La Mesa.
And the out-of-state applicants are Mike Arismendez of Shallowater, Texas, and Chris Brice of Pensacola, Florida.
The commissioners will be interviewing the six candidates Thursday beginning at 9 a.m.
The position has been open since Charles “Tink” Jackson resigned last month.
Interim County Manager Glory Juarez, who usually serves as assistant county manager, did not apply for the county manager’s position.
