Members of the Los Alamos Commerce and Development Corporation Board of Directors are meeting today to decide the course of action they will take with regard to Executive Director Scott Randall.
Randall, who turned 59 years old Sunday, was arrested by Los Alamos police early Friday morning and charged with domestic battery and DUI. He has been executive director of the LACDC for about 14 months.
“We are holding a special board meeting at 4 p.m. today where we will make a decision on what is the best option,” LACDC Board Chair Bill Wadt told the Los Alamos Daily Post. “Once we make a decision, we will first inform Scott, then the staff and then we will issue a press release.”

Randall’s arrest occurred after he attended a tourism event with his wife and another couple off the hill that ended at 7 p.m. Thursday. It’s unclear where they went next but he and his wife returned home after 11 p.m. and police were called to the residence a short while later.

Randall was hired by the LACDC Board of Directors April 1, 2013. He succeeded longtime Executive Director Kevin Holsapple who retired in April 2013. Randall moved to Los Alamos with his wife from Hot Springs Village, Ark., where he served as general manager of a non-profit property owner’s association.

He was fired from that job after 20 months and from another job as city manager in Superior, Colo. Randall held that job from February 2007 to September 2010. He sued the City of Superior and the contentious lawsuit was finally settled last February after a 3-and-a-half-year battle. Click here and here and here for details.

Randall’s past jobs also include city manager of Auburn Hills, Mich., 2004-2006, Scott Randall & Associates 2003-2004, city manager of Clayton, Mo. 1997-2003, interim village administrator in Streamwood, Ill. 1992-1996 and village manager of LaGrange, Ill. 1988-1992.
