by: File photo Rob Drake of Beaverton begins his new job Feb. 13 as the city manager of Cornelius.

Former Beaverton Mayor was appointed Tuesday night as Cornelius city manager.

Drake was one of four finalists interviewed by city staff and the city council to replace Dave Waffle, who was fired last year by a majority vote of three councilors that were later recalled by voters.

The new council, led by Mayor Jef Dalin voted to bring Drake on board Tuesday night in a 4-1 vote, with recently appointed councilor Jose Orozco voting no.

Drake spent 15 years as the mayor and city administrator of Beaverton.
