Syracuse Mayor is hiring

The City of Syracuse is hiring a Director of the Mayor’s Office to Reduce Gun Violence.

From the job description:

“The Director will focus on synchronizing the city’s anti-gun violence initiatives while working alongside residents, community stakeholders, law enforcement and violence prevention experts to identify factors perpetuating gun violence in Syracuse and implement strategic solutions informed by proven best practices to address them. The Director will be tasked with supporting existing and developing new interventions which produce measurable outcomes.”

I’m going to go out on a limb and say the person ultimately hired (at $65,000/year) is going to be a politically-connected crony of either the Mayor, another elected official, and/or local political parties.
