Current, former city workers among applicants to jobs with mayor-elect McNally

Published: Wed, December 4, 2013 @ 10:35 p.m.


About 75 people submitted applications to Youngstown Mayor-elect John McNally IV to serve in his cabinet.

The mayor is allowed to make several key department-head appointments with none having civil-service protection.

The heads of eight departments submitted resumes and letters of interest to McNally to keep their jobs.

Also, several attorneys in the law department — all who have unclassified jobs and are appointed by the mayor — turned in letters of interest asking that McNally retain them.

McNally said he will start meeting with applicants shortly and will have some appointments made by next week.

McNally said he isn’t sure if he’ll hire a chief of staff/secretary. But if he does, it definitely won’t be for a few months.

A number of former department heads and ex-city council members submitted applications, including former Police Chief Jimmy Hughes; Carmen S. Conglose Jr., the former deputy director of public works; former 2nd Ward Councilman Rufus Hudson; and ex-6th Ward Councilman Paul Pancoe.

Does former police chief Jimmy Hughes really think he has a shot?? The current chief has done more at lunch than Hughes did during his entire tenure as a police officer. Did he try to make a deal with the devil by dropping out of the mayor's race? If he is re-appointed, he will bring morale to an all time low. If it ain't broke, don't try to fix it!! Leave the chief we have right where he is at.

If Jimmy applied for police chief, and gets the gig, I would hope the people of Y-town start a recall petition for the Mayor.
