Former city councilor Peter Napolitano, the front runner for the vacant assistant city clerk’s position, has received an OK from the State Ethic’s Commission that there are no impediments in his way to seek the position.
This, according to Assistant City Solicitor Kevin Slattery.
Slattery informed the city council Monday night that the State Ethics Commission reported finding no conflict or any state ethics violations regarding his application for the position following an investigation.
Former city councilor Napolitano is believed to be the favorite of the city council to replace former mayor and assistant city solicitor David Ragucci, who has retired.
The city council is now going over applications submitted by those wishing to interview for the position.
The city council insists it is a free and open process – clear of the mayor’s influence.
