Luzerne County Judicial Services and Records Division Head Joan Hoggarth has hired James Haddock to oversee the civil and criminal records offices and Mary Dysleski to run the deeds and wills offices.
Haddock, who will be paid $47,500, replaces Art Bobbouine.
Dysleski, who was serving as interim human services division head, will receive $50,000 in the new position. Donald Williamson had been overseeing the deeds/wills offices as interim director.
Bobbouine and Williamson are both being cut from the county payroll as part of the reorganization.
Interim county coroner William Lisman will become permanent coroner at a salary of $45,000.
The positions filled by Hoggarth were elected row offices before home rule. She has not selected someone to permanently fill the sheriff position.
According to an email forwarded to council, Hoggarth said Haddock has 24 years in banking experience, including work as assistant vice president simultaneously overseeing several bank branches. Haddock resigned his post as the county’s Democratic party third district chairman, Hoggarth said.
