Vanderpool No Longer Considering Skokie Village Manager Job, Paper Reports

He took his name out of consideration, a Michigan newspaper reported.

Skokie will have to look elsewhere for a village manager to replace Al Rigoni, according to news from a Michigan newspaper. 

Mark Vanderpool, who was being courted by the village of Skokie for the position, is no longer considering it and has decided to remain in his current post, according to the Advisor and Source, a newspaper in the Sterling Heights, Mich., area, where Vanderpool is city manager.
