October 10, 2007

Washington County's new human resources director will begin work Oct. 15, according to a county press release.

George William Sonnik III was approved for the position by the county commissioners during their Sept. 11 meeting at a salary of $75,000.

Sonnik replaces David Hanikson, who resigned in November 2006 after three years to become human resources director for B.F. Goodrich Turbine Fuels in Des Moines, Iowa.

Dee Hawbaker has served as acting human resources director since Hanikson resigned.

Sonnik graduated from Hagerstown Junior College and the University of Maryland.

He most recently worked for Verizon Communications.

Sonnik served on the Berkeley County Board of Education from 1994 to 2002 and was president of the board from 1996 to 1998.

Washington County Administrator Gregory B. Murray said last month that the county received 27 applications for the job and interviewed seven finalists. He said Sonnik has experience in employment issues, unions and politics.
