On Jan. 21, the City Council approved the recommendation to hire Jeanne-Marie Crockett as the new city clerk.
She was in attendance during that meeting, but shortly after, she decided not to take the job.
In an interview this week, Crockett said there was a difference between the salary amount she was given during the interview process and what she was informed in writing. As such, Crockett, who works at Santa Fe Community College, didn’t accept the offer. She wouldn’t say what the varying amounts were.
