County officials debate hiring of deputy warden
Wednesday, July 31, 2013
By Jeff Corcino Staff Writer
The Clearfield County Prison Board is deadlocked on the question of hiring a deputy warden who would replace Warden Sam Lombardo when he retires next spring.
Lombardo is retiring in April and the prison board held a special meeting yesterday morning to discuss who would be appointed to the position of deputy warden. The deputy warden would replace Lombardo when he retires, Commissioner Joan Robinson McMillen said.
The commissioners advertised the position, conducted interviews and narrowed the list of candidates to three, according to President Judge Fredric Ammerman.
The board adjourned to executive session for about an hour and a half and after reconvening a motion was made and seconded to table filling the position to give the board more time to make its decision and conduct more interviews.
However, the vote was deadlocked at 3-3 with Ammerman, Commissioner Mark McCracken, and Tony Scotto, county controller, voting in favor of tabling, and Commissioners John Sobel and McMillen and Sheriff Chester Hawkins voting against. Clearfield County District Attorney William Shaw Jr. abstained.
Shaw said he abstained because needs more information on the job description before any interviews are conducted.
Because the vote was deadlocked, the board is going to schedule another special hearing to further discuss the matter.
