After applying for at least two top executive posts in other counties, Winona County Administrator Duane Hebert said he is not seeking a new employer in Sherburne County.
Hebert had applied for administrator jobs in Wabasha and Sherburne counties, and was named a finalist in both search processes last month. The Wabasha County Board opted to offer the position to another candidate, while the Sherburne County Board held final interviews late last week.
Hebert confirmed Wednesday that he had withdrawn his name from consideration in the Sherburne County recruitment effort about two weeks earlier.
Hebert was hired by Winona County four years ago, and has since led an effort to reduce the county's employee numbers through cross-training and attrition.
