Mayor-elect Bryan Baptiste announced recently he is accepting rsums from people interested in applying for various appointed positions in county government.
Those who meet qualifications for positions including county attorney, county engineer, director of finance, fire chief, director of finance, and director of the Offices of Community Assistance, can get their paperwork to Baptiste in a variety of ways, he said.
People interested in and qualified for those positions may call the Baptiste campaign headquarters, 632-0743; bring paperwork by the headquarters, on Ahukini Road on the airport side of Hilo Hattie; or mail them to Baptiste, P.O. Box 125, Hanama’ulu, HI 96715.
A five-person committee is being formed to review rsums and recommend to Baptiste the top three applicants for each position, he said.
Baptiste, who formally takes office upon being sworn in on Monday, Dec. 2, said he has several people in mind for various other appointed positions in the mayor’s office.
