Mayor-elect John McNally IV is asking those interested in serving in his Cabinet to submit resumes and letters of interest to him by Dec. 1.

And if you don’t want anyone to know you’re looking for a job in McNally’s administration, don’t apply.

McNally wrote in an email: “All applicants should be aware that upon written request from any media outlets or any other requesting parties, all applications will be subject to disclosure as if the submitted resumes are public record.”

Those interested in applying should send resumes and letters of interest to McNally at 2236 Burma Drive, Youngstown, OH 44511 or by email at by 5 p.m. Dec. 1. Also, those wanting to keep their Cabinet jobs must do the same by the Dec. 1 deadline.

McNally, a Democrat, won the Nov. 5 general election for mayor and takes over Jan. 1 as mayor. He said he expects to select his Cabinet members by mid-December,

McNally said he will screen applicants for jobs and decide who he wants without the assistance of a committee.

The unclassified jobs that McNally will fill are for: chief of staff/secretary, finance director, police chief, fire chief, deputy director of public works, buildings and grounds commissioner, water commissioner, human relations commission executive director, law director, prosecutor, and attorneys in the latter two departments.

McNally also included park and recreation director on his list, saying that job was on a list of unclassified positions he received by request from the city’s civil- service commission.

But that job was filled in March 2012 by Robert Burke after going through the civil-service process.

McNally said he would remove it from the list if he can’t hire the park and recreation director.
