Councilor says he won't vote to hire nonresidents

(Continued)

Haskell’s term goes through Feb. 1, 2014. Watkins, who left in August, started as an aide in the mayor’s office in 2006 and was named purchasing agent in 2010.

Sosnowski could not be reached for further comment on Friday. At the council meeting, Sosnowski said he spoke with Haskell beforehand to explain his vote against her.

Several other councilors spoke in favor of Haskell, saying she’s highly qualified.

After the vote was taken, Haskell thanked the mayor and council for her appointment.
