Fourteen applications for the vacant Harbor Master position have been received so far. The Town has established a so-called ‘Interview Committee’ which will be responsible for the interview and hiring recommendation. However, no one seems to know who is sitting on the committee. The Mirror accosted councilman Frank Wendell on the sidewalk, and he stated that he had no idea there even was a committee until just a few days earlier. Wendell also noted that he did not know who was on the committee, but said he would contact the Mayor to find out. Wendell eventually responded to the Mirror on Saturday the 28th, stating that he contacted the Mayor, and that Proto also had no idea who was on the committee, only that Town Manager Manuel had formed it.
Sources tell that Mirror that they also have no idea who is on the committee, but that Joan Natali is probably on it, since she is on every other committee in Cape Charles. The interview committee did attend a webinar Friday on proper interviewing techniques.
