All 20 candidates for the vacant the Ward 8 Council seat will be interviewed by the Ward 8 replacement search committee beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 31 at the Municipal Building.
Applicants will be notified by mail of their appointment times.
The Ward 8 search committee is headed by At Large Councilman Jim Shealey. Other committee members appointed by Council President Marco Sommerville are: James P. Hurley III (W-1), Renee Greene (W-4), Kelli Crawford (W-10), and John Conti (At Large).
The seat was left open when former representative Bob Keith accepted the job as Clerk of Council earlier this month. Sommerville named Hurley to replace Keith as chair of the Public Service Committee, leaving his post as chair of Council’s Public Utility Committee to Ward 5 Councilman Kenneth Jones.
