Noah Cashman’s at-large seat: Who’s applying for the interim position? Who’s running for the two-year term?

  1. Aug. 4 is the deadline for anyone interested in serving as the interim at-large councilor for Noah Cashman’s seat. This interim term would be from Aug. 18 to the end of 2008.
  2. Aug. 26 to Sept. 9 is the filing period for those interested in serving out the two years remaining in Cashman’s term. There’s no primary, even if more than two file. Election will be held on Nov. 4.


See this July 18 Nfld News story for background.

    Seems like both the City’s website and the LWV website should be promoting the application and filing periods for these two openings but I can’t find anything other than notes on the July council meeting when the decision was made. Anyone have some URLs?

    I’m voting for Dixon Bond…

    …whether or not he decides to run.

    No, but I’m planning to talk to Brendon Etter about setting up a website for Dixon. As someone who doesn’t own a computer, I’m sure he won’t complain about Brendon’s music choices for the site.

    Griff (#5): I actually dropped off an application yesterday. I don’t know of anyone else who applied, but it sounds like more than one other did. (An unnamed source in the admin. office referred, in passing, to other applicants in the plural.) I hope the council ends up with someone halfway decent, whoever they pick.

    Hey, glad to hear, Scott! I’ve contacted the City Clerk, Deb Little, re: who else has filed.

    Interesting list. How/when is the interim position filled?

    Patrick, the Council evidently will do interviews at the Aug. 11 mtg, and then vote (round-robin style, possibly) at the Aug. 18 mtg.
