Council Selects Finalists for General Seat A

City Council selected Michael Carroll, Jan Fisk and Arthur Hodge as the three finalists for Council General Seat A. Carroll has been a resident of Springfield for seven years and is the controller of Andy's Frozen Custard. He received a juris doctorate from the University of Missouri-Columbia in May 2000 and is a former member of the Greene County Board of Equalization and Leadership Springfield. Fisk has been a resident of Springfield for 37 years, and is the co-owner of J. Howard Fisk Limousines. She is a graduate of Missouri State University and has been involved with numerous organizations in Springfield. Hodge, a resident of Springfield for 23 years, is retired from the U.S. Army and Springfield Public Schools, where he worked security and as an attendance adviser. He attended various schools including Ozarks Technical College and Missouri State University and currently works as a substitute teacher in Springfield.

Finalists will be asked to answer a set of questions posed at a special Council meeting, likely to take place prior to the regular June 18 meeting. At that time, Council will make a selection, and that candidate will serve the time left on the seat, which expires in 2013.
