What can Cincinnati's incoming city manager learn from the local guy who didn't get the job?

'My goal is to help the city'

       
      A top ally for Cincinnati's incoming City Manager Harry Black may be the man who didn’t get the job - long-time city leader Scott Stiles.
       
     

A veteran city employee, Stiles has spent 26 years working for Cincinnati – serving most recently as assistant city manager and then interim manager following Milton Dohoney’s departure last December.

On Wednesday, Stiles was passed over in his bid to become Cincinnati’s 15th city manager - a job he has been doing for the last eight months.  Stiles was the only local candidate for the chief role from a national pool of applicants that included Black - Mayor John Cranley's nominee from Baltimore.

“Every one has been asking are you disappointed? Are you happy to have some of your life back? It’s a little bit of everything,” said Stiles. “But we got a lot of good stuff done, and I’m proud of that.”
