Former City Councilor Peter Napolitano has won the selection process for the vacant assistant city clerk’s position.
The vote of his colleagues in confirming his nomination was 10-1.
When all was said and done and the selection process was at an end last weekend, it was apparently obvious to most observers that Napolitano was, and is, in fact, the most qualified local candidate for the job.
His former colleagues on the council all agreed.
“He’ll do a great job,” Councilor Mike Marchese said of Napolitano’s appointment. “He’s the right person for the job,” he added.
Nearly all of his colleagues felt the same way.
Councilor Gerly Adrien did not vote for Napolitano.
She felt a qualified minority candidate would have done more for the city’s effort to integrate the city workforce.
Napolitano was extremely pleased.
“I thank my colleagues for their support. I will not let them down,” he said.
