ANDERSON — Michael Frischkorn will succeed Ashley Hopper, who began her role as city attorney this week, as Deputy Director of Economic Development. Frischkorn assumed his duties Monday, March 18.

“Michael brings the legal expertise, contractual insight and work ethic required for success in this postion. We hate to lose Ashley, but she is going to make a great city attorney and Michael is a great choice to fill this deputy director’s role.”
