Mayor Godsey's wife offered Sullivan County job

Sullivan County Interim Budget Director Gayvern Moore confirmed to the Times-News late Wednesday that Sullivan County Mayor Steve Godsey’s wife, Julie Godsey, has declined a job offer from the county.

Moore said Mrs. Godsey had indeed been offered a job in the county’s Solid Waste Department, which would have filled a position that had previously been full-time, but was offered to Mrs. Godsey as a 10- to 12-hour per week position.

Moore, who manages the county payroll, said Mrs. Godsey had not been added to the a payroll, and she did not know if there were other applicants for the position.

A call to Godsey’s office was routed back to Moore’s office — meaning the mayor was not in.
