Jefferson County legislators hold County Manager hearing

Posted: Updated:
JEFFERSON COUNTY - AL -

Two members of the Jefferson County legislative delegation say the county needs to re-select its manager.  Representatives Mary Moore and John Rogers say the county made an illegal move when it named Tony Petelos to the post.

Moore and Rogers say the county was required to consider at least one woman and at least one minority for the post- but they say Petelos' name was the only one in consideration when he was selected.  Moore says more candidates had been in consideration- but they all withdrew their names before Petelos put his name into consideration.

The two lawmakers say they are not upset about Petelos getting them job.  They simply say they want the county to go through the selection process again- and do it properly.
