Dozens of applicants for Princeton CAO job

Interim administrator leaving at end of January

Approximately 38 people have applied to be CAO of the Town of Princeton, according to interim administrator Bob Wilson.

“I have acquainted council with some of the applicants and that’s about where we stand,” said Wilson.

Wilson took the short-term post early December following the sudden departure of CAO Rick Zerr.

Wilson is a former Princeton resident, and former CAO of Langley who now consults for municipalities.

Wilson will vacate the position at the end of January to fulfill prior commitments, and said he is hopeful a permanent CAO will be engaged by that time.

“I don’t know if somebody will be in the chair. I’m hoping somebody will be chosen and if they are working for another municipality or something it might take them a couple of weeks or so [to assume responsibilities in Princeton].”

He said residents should not be concerned if the position is empty temporarily as department heads will continue to manage their own workers.

“Each department will be running their own…I’m not here on Fridays and when I come back the place is still standing and they haven’t sold town hall.”
