Irwin hires assistant manager

Joe Napsha

Irwin will once more have a manager and an assistant manager to operate the town’s government.

Council voted unanimously on Sept. 3 to hire Stacie Santimyer as the borough’s assistant manager at an annual salary of $35,000, said Shari Martino, borough manager.

Santimyer, aNorth Huntingdon resident, will begin her new job on Sept. 18.

Santimyer will succeed Martino, who was the assistant manager until she was hired in August as the borough manager. Martino replaced Valerie Morton, who resigned in June.

Councilman Frank Rocco Jr. said the borough had a pool of about 100 people who applied for the manager’s job earlier this summer and also were considered for the assistant manager’s position. Those who applied did not have municipal government experience, Rocco said.

Council reduced the pool of candidates to about five, then two finalists, before hiring Santimyer, according to Rocco.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
