In Baltimore City

Personnel director resigns to accept similar post in D.C.

Baltimore's longtime personnel director is leaving for a similar job with Washington city government.

Jesse E. Hoskins, 54, has worked for the city through more than a decade of tight budgets and sometimes tough labor negotiations. Mayor Martin O'Malley said yesterday that Hoskins will be "really hard to replace."

Hoskins, hired by Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke in December 1988, has accepted the position of "human capital officer," essentially the human resources director, of Washington. He would not disclose his new salary but said it will be "much higher" than his current $105,000 salary, adding that that was a factor in his departure.

FOR THE RECORD - An article that appeared in the Maryland section of some editions of The Sun yesterday describing the departure of Baltimore's personnel director, Jesse E. Hoskins, incorrectly identified the agency where he will be working. Hoskins has accepted a job as human capital officer for the U.S. General Accounting Office, not the city government of Washington. The Sun regrets the error.
