New economic chief nominated for Manchester, gets Mayor Gatsas’ nod
“I have the utmost confidence that Mr. Craig is going to perform the duties required of the position and, believe me, I know he’s going to work hard, being a lifelong member of the city of Manchester,” Mayor Ted Gatsas said. “I think he’s going to be an asset to us for an awfully long time.”
Craig’s nomination will be taken up at the Oct. 1 full board meeting; eight aldermen will have to vote to approve it. Should he be confirmed, he would start in mid-October at an annual salary of $67,890.40, according to the Mayor’s Office.William Craig started as a legislative aide to Hassan while she was the state Senate President Pro Tem in January 2007, according to his resume. He also worked on her campaign for governor and on her transition team before being appointed policy director. He holds a law degree from Suffolk University Law School.
In other business, the board agreed to appoint Patricia Cornell to serve the remainder of the Ward 11 Board of School Committee seat vacated when Jason Cooper resigned. Cornell begins her term today.
