SCRANTON – A special meeting of the Lackawanna County Prison Board on Monday, April 18, to discuss personnel matters offered little information on the hiring of a new prison warden. Interim Warden Vincent Mooney, Jr., was appointed to the position on Dec. 1, 2010.
Lynne Shedlock, the county’s communications director, said 20 applications were received for the position, and the board selected the top three applicants.
The concerns of the board are to “hire the right person,” District Attorney Andy Jarbola said Monday. The board is taking additional time to establish whose expertise makes the best fit for the county.
Jarbola indicated more information on the warden’s position could come from an April 27 meeting
