City Council is looking for a collegue for the next five months.
The resignation of Councilman Peter Clough has left a vacancy that will be filled in short order since being down one person on a five person body is difficult.
It's a dead end job that pays $1020 per month.
The Clough seat will be filled in November when voters choose between Steve Bradley and Teresa Macaluso for a 4 year term.
Councilman Jeff Smith has suggested tapping a young person of college age and giving them a learning experience. That's OK with the right young person and I agree it would be an unusual move.
The other alternative is to choose a former elected official as sort of an elder statesman candidate.
Don't look for anyone interested in running for the seat to be picked even though they would have to wait two years before running on their own.
Among the former elected officials are Tom Walker,Ken Hartz, Jim Norris, Joe Butler , former candidate John Rice, or businessman Dave Mance.
