Harrington sticks with us

Carbondale Town Manager Jay Harrington this week informed the Town of Vail that he was pulling himself out of the running to become the new town manager there.

Referring to a phone call to the recruitment firm acting on Vail’s behalf, Harrington told The Sopris Sun, “I told him that, even if offered the job, I would not be accepting it.”

He said that family considerations played the biggest role in his decision, and that “there comes a time when money is not the main consideration” in whether to switch jobs, a reference to the fact that the Vail job carries a considerably higher salary than his current position, and comes with housing.

The Vail Town Council was scheduled to meet on April 26, after The Sopris Sun’s deadline, to make a selection from three finalists angling to replace Vail’s former town manager, who left earlier this year.
