Stockbridge narrows fire chief candidates down to two finalists

STOCKBRIDGE — The search committee has delivered two finalists for the fire chief position, despite ongoing litigation with the town’s former fire chief requesting that he be reinstated.

Gary Johnston, chairman of the search committee and town moderator, announced at the select board’s meeting on Monday the committee was pleased with the candidates the committee had brought forward.

“The opening generated interesting candidates from all across the country and a total of 19 applicants,” said Johnston at the meeting. “We have brought forward to very good candidates for the town of Stockbridge.”

In addition to in-state candidates, applicants came in from Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, West Virginia, North Carolina and Florida.

Select board members Terrence R. Flynn and chairman Donald M. Chabon voted at a February meeting to appoint a search committee with the purpose of hiring a new fire chief. Board member and former Fire Chief Ernest J. “Chuckie” Cardillo recused himself from the vote.

The committee, comprising Great Barrington Fire Chief Charles Burger; Stockbridge Planning Board member Wayne Slosek; resident Marion Gardner-Saxe; and Pittsfield Fire Chief Robert Czerwinski, interviewed four candidates.
