Irving Gets Part-Time Job at One Stop Center

February 11, 2013 at 2:13 PM


PATERSON, NJ – School Board President Christopher Irving has taken a $20,000 per year part-time position at the Passaic County Workforce Development Center, officials said.

Irving was hired to try to increase the number of organizations that submit proposals for job training contracts at the agency’s One Stop Career Center on Memorial Drive, officials said.

By getting more organizations to compete for the training contracts, the agency hopes to improve the quality of services it provided, said Mark Schiffer, director of the Passaic County Board of Social Services. The social service board began overseeing the operation of the workforce center at the start of this year as part of the fallout of a controversy involving overtime payments to top executives at the job center.

Irving started work at the One Stop center last week. The position requires about 20 hours of work per week, Schiffer said.

The school board president alerted to his new position, saying that as a public official he felt he should be “transparent” about his employment. In his full-time job, Irving is executive director of the Miller Institute, a company based in Clifton that provides education training and consulting.

“This allows me to use my ties to the community to improve the services at the One Stop Center,’’ he said.
