Tonight the Council interviewed six people who had applied for the interim seat created by Andy Klein’s resignation. After interviewing all the candidates the Council unanimously voted to appoint Karen Clapper.
Politics is known as the art of compromise. Tonight the City Council, divided over when and how to hold an election to fill the vacancy created by Andy Klein’s departure, came together on a compromise approach originally proposed by Matt Grocott.
Last night the Council deadlocked over whether to call a special election to fill the seat left by Andy Klein’s resignation. The discussion will resume Friday afternoon at 1 PM, by which time City Counsel will have done more research on the applicable law. There’s a hard stop Friday because the law requires a decision within 30 days of the resignation.
