O'Malley Staying In La Crosse County
In Minnesota, the Hennepin County Board, by a vote of 7-0, has chosen to keep appointed Deputy County Administrator David Hough as their county administrator. The other names that were considered included La Crosse County Administrator, Steve O'Malley.
Hough has been serving as acting county administrator since December due to the retirement of County Administrator Richard Johnson.
Hough has served as deputy county administrator since 2008. Before that appointment, he was a deputy county attorney in the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office where he served as the board’s chief legal counsel as well as representing the county in both civil and criminal matters.
