The city of Centralia has hired former Tenino Mayor Bret Brodersen as its finance director.
He replaced Pam Nelson, who is retiring.
“I’m feeling, after the transition time with Bret that I’m leaving you in great hands,” Nelson told the Centralia City Council last week.
Brodersen previously worked as a financial consultant for the state. He lost the Tenino mayoral race to Wayne Fournier in November.
