FITCHBURG -- City councilors are questioning the hiring process used by Mayor Lisa Wong in appointing the city's new economic-development director, a position brought back by the council last year.

In a recent email sent to his fellow councilors, Councilor-at-Large Dean Tran outlined several concerns about Wong's hiring of Jerry Beck, former director of marketing and community relations for the Fitchburg Art Museum, in December.

Tran, who entered the successful petition to bring back the economic-development position, said there are still many questions that have been unanswered, including: how members of the selection committee were chosen; whether the council president was asked to appoint a liaison to the committee; why the job description wasn't posted on any local or statewide job boards; why the human-resources director was not part of the selection committee; the number of résumés received for the position and why more were not sought; why the position was announced as a director or chief marking officer when the council approved it as a manager position; and why a three-year contract was put in place when the council asked that the position be funded annually based on performance.

Council President Stephan Hay has referred the matter to a Council as a Whole Committee meeting, a date for which has not yet been set.
