By Lee Hermiston, Reporter
NORTH LIBERTY, Iowa - One of the candidates to become North Liberty's police chief has dropped out of the running.
Cliff Sessoms, the deputy police chief of the Marion, Ind. Police Department has withdrawn his name from consideration, according to a press release from the City of North Liberty.
The four remaining finalists are:
Diana Venega, who has served as North Liberty's interim police chief since February.
Lt. Mike Brotherton of the Iowa City Police Department.
Carlisle, Iowa Police Chief Jason Doll.
Commander Brad Nelson of the Columbia, Mo. Police Department.
The public will have a chance to meet the four finalists next Wednesday, 5:30 to 7 p.m., at the North Liberty Community Library. The event was moved from the City Council Chambers because of a scheduling conflict.
North Liberty city staff, councilors and area law enforcement will also interview the candidates with the hope of selecting a chief shortly after the interviews.
