For Immediate Release
Zone 3 Council seat finalists
The City Council will interview three finalists for the open Zone 3 position as part of its regular meeting on Monday, May 4, 2009.
The three finalists, in alphabetical order, are:
- Jeremy Cady, Web/graphic manager
- Jerry Compton, Architect
- Dan Scott, Architect
Each of the three candidates will be interviewed, in a random order, beginning at 6 p.m., Monday, in Council Chambers in Historic City Hall. Each candidate will be asked the same set of questions. The other two candidates will be sequestered while one is being interviewed so that they don’t hear the questions or responses. City Council members were asked to submit questions or topics that are being used to develop the set of questions.
Mayor Jim O’Neal said he would like the Council to hold a vote Monday night following the presentations. A five-vote majority is required for the successful applicant.
The finalists were selected from a group of nine applicants who made presentations at a special City Council meeting on Wednesday, April 29. Each current Council member was asked to select his or her top four choices and those choices were narrowed to the top three finalists.
The finalist interviews, as well as the regular Council meeting, will air live on the City Web site and on TV23, the City’s government access channel, on Mediacom Channel 23. Application information for the finalists is available on the City Web site.
