May 18th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

City Administrator Jeff Rhodes is pleased to announce that Ken Tressler,
the City’s Comptroller for a combined 9½ years, has been promoted to
the position of Director of Administrative Services, which has been vacant
for a number of years. The Director position brings under Mr. Tressler’s
supervision the City’s Human Resources, Information Technology, Tax &
Utility, Finance, Community Development and Parks & Recreation
“Ken has been a tremendous asset to the City as the Comptroller and this
promotion will allow us to expand his role and influence on the
organization,” said Jeff Rhodes. “Ken's abilities are unique and with him
taking on this new position, it allows us to further utilize his expertise to
benefit our organization and community. I’ve often said that Ken was the
best public finance professional I have ever worked with.”
Filling the vacancy left by Mr. Tressler’s promotion, Mark Gandolfi, CPA,
has been named the City’s new Comptroller. Mr. Gandolfi brings to the
City a professional background encompassing both public and private
entities, most recently as the Superintendent and Chief Financial Officer
for the West Virginia Schools for the Deaf and the Blind.
“Mark is a seasoned financial professional with a dual degree in Business
Administration and Accounting & Finance and brings with him strong
leadership and management of financial activities,” said Ken Tressler.
“His experience with analytical processing, financial statement
preparation, evaluation, planning and assessment of operations will be
very valuable to the City as we navigate these uncertain times.”

      > And perhaps a bit too forthright as well; the pervious comptroller was forced out for objecting to the Mayor and Council running up millions in debt for lame projects suggested by lame consultants.
