Mapp hires Eric Watson for DPW. What do you think?

Eric Watson makes full circle, returns to Public Works.

Plainfield Mayor Adrian Mapp has hired former PMUA executive director Eric Watson to be the new head of the Department of Public Works and Urban Development, replacing the well-respected Eric Jackson, who was elected mayor of Trenton in May. Watson is slated to start work Monday.

Mayor Mapp says he has contemplated several candidates and that Watson brings the skills and experience to the job which will make him a good contribution to the Mapp leadership team.

The appointment of department heads is the mayor's prerogative, with the advice and consent of the Council. While residency has been an issue with recent hires, it will not be a concern when Watson's name is brought forward as he is a Plainfield resident.

So, what do you think?
