The search continues and the end is in sight.
The North Central Regional Transit District has been conducting a search since May to find a new executive director to replace Josette Lucero, who retired at the end of April.
In the meantime, the NCRTD named former Los Alamos County Administator Tony Mortillaro as the interim executive director May 6. Rosemary Romero, who is heading the search committee, said Mortillaro and four others made the final cut and interviews were to be conducted next week. Romero said others in contention for the post include Joe Briscoe, Lauren Reichelt, Harry Montoya and Gregory Trujillo.
