On Tuesday night, Aug. 14, Christopher J. Dennis was voted unanimously to become the new SeaTac city manager, to replace retiring Joe Scorcio after a three month overlap period.
The city will now work on a potential contract for Dennis’ service with final approval coming in the next weeks once a contract has been agreed upon.
Dennis is recently retired from the U.S. Navy with the rank of captain. He is from New Smyrna Beach, Fla., is a graduate of Auburn University, and has a master of arts in national security and strategic studies from the U.S. Naval War College. Highlighting nearly three decades of afloat and ashore service, Dennis served as the commanding officer of: Naval Air Station Sigonella, Sicily, Italy; Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron Light 46; and the University of Michigan Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps.
