Rumormill: Cathy Allen Nephew Hired in Northampton County
Allen has already used her position to hire a few friends here and there. Nothing wrong with a little cronyism, they say.
It's not like she was hiring her nephew.
Guess what? Several sources tell me that's exactly what happened. Her nephew will be starting soon in the maintenance department. I am unable to confirm this rumor at thos junctre, but heard it from enough people to repeat here
Northampton County does have a fairly broad nepotism policy, which does extend to nephews. But it would apply only if there is a supervisor-subordinate relation between Allen and her nephew. So there's probably no violation.
And I'm sure he was hired because of his amazing talent.
