New Bedford mayor says finalists in schools superintendent search to be announced publicly
"I want to make sure this is done the right way, and that's why I'm following a process that has been used at universities," Mitchell said. "At the university level, they know that ... hiring new leaders are important decisions, and ... I believe we should hold ourselves to the same standard."
According to the Standard-Times, Mayor Mitchell's postion on the superintendent search process differed from what he had said previously.
According to the mayor, the newspaper had mischaracterized his intentions for the superintendent search.
"I'm glad to see that (Mitchell) now believes that process should be open and transparent," said Editor Robert Unger.
