New Town Manager selected by Town Board by Patti Babcock The Pahrump Town Board voted unani- mously to offer the Town Manager posi- tion to George McDermott at the regular meeting Tuesday, May 28. The search committee comprised of Board Members Charlie Gronda and Gary Hollis and Town Attorney Len Smith narrowed the field of 23 applicants to three finalists. Smith said one of the can- didates withdrew prior to the interview process, but called later to ask that he be reconsidered. The board declined to re- open interviews. The other finalist was a good candidate, Smith said, but his abil- ity to relocate could be delayed due to his wife's serious health problems. The search committee was unani- mous in its recommendation of McDermott. Hollis said a reference he spoke with by phone spoke highly of the candidate and said if McDermott accepted the position, "Pahrump would be getting a bargain." McDermott is currently an Adminis- trator, Treasurer and Finan- cial Officer for a borough in New Jersey and is certi- fied by the State of New Jersey as a Financial Pub- lic Officer. The search com- mittee said the candidate' s extensive financial back- ground would be useful to the town. They said he ap- pears to be a person who will stay in Pahrump. Scott Nielsen resigned after serving less than ayear as Town Manager. His pre- decessor, Roger Baltz, served less than two years. The candidate, of Brigantine, New Jer- sey, was offered the position at a salary of $50,627 (grade 30, step 5 on the town pay scale) during a telephone call placed by Gronda on Wednesday morning. Gronda said he had not received a final acceptance yet when contacted Wednesday afternoon. He reaffirmed his belief McDermott would be a good Town Manager. Gronda said the candidate could be on the job within 30 days of final acceptance. Gronda hopes he can be here sooner. Mike Mclnerny, a member of the au- dience, asked why McDermott would take a pay cut to move to Pahrump. Hollis said the candidate's wife, who has a gaming license in New Jersey, wants to work in the Las Vegas casino industry. They also want to be closer to a daughter and gra6d- children who live in Las Vegas. Looking for the Best Cigars in the valley? We have them!
