19 people applied to be Cincinnati's next city manager

19 people submitted applications to the search firm, Ralph Andersen and Associates, retained by Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley to help select the next city manager.

WVXU had submitted an open records requests for the information about two months ago.  A list with the applicants was provided Thursday, one day after Mayor Cranley announced Baltimore Finance Director Harry Black was his choice for the job.

A council committee will be interviewing Black on Tuesday and the full Council could vote on his nomination Wednesday.

If confirmed, he'll replace interim city manager Scott Stiles, who was an unsuccessful candidate for the permanent job.  Stiles will return to his position as an assistant city manager.
