Deputy Mayor Schaefer to Step Down
He's accepted a position with Garmong Construction
Evansville’s deputy mayor is taking a job in the private sector. WNIN’s John Gibson has the story:
Steve Schaefer says he will join Garmong Construction as Vice President for the Evansville Region at the end of November.
On his Facebook page, Schaefer calls it a “fantastic opportunity to lead and grow Garmong's footprint in southwest Indiana.”
He says he still has more to accomplish in his final days in the Winnecke administration and as head of the Department of Parks and Recreation.
Schaefer has served as interim parks director since 2021, when the previous director resigned.
Deputy Parks Director Danielle Crooks will take over the director's position when Schaefer leaves.
Voters will decide Mayor Winnecke’s successor in Tuesday’s election.
