Hennepin County Board picks David Hough for administrator

The Hennepin County Board of Commissioners today unanimously selected David Hough as county administrator.

Hough has been acting administrator since December, when Richard Johnson retired.

The other two finalists were:

  • Stephen Cramer, the former Minneapolis City Council member who's now president of Project for Pride in Living.
  • Steve O'Malley, the La Crosse County, Wis., county administrator.

Hough had been deputy administrator before taking the temporary helm when Johnson retired.
