The Drew County Democratic Committee is currently accepting applications to fill the Ward 4, Position 2 seat on the Monticello City Council, which was vacated when Alderman Tim Chase passed away April 15. Chase’s widow, Paige, has been appointed by the council to serve out the remainder of
his current term, which will end December 31, and has expressed an interest in running for the seat herself for the 2017-2018 term.
The Democratic committee will hold a meeting on Monday, June 13, at 6 p.m. in the upstairs courtroom at the Drew County Courthouse. At that time, any persons who are interested in the council seat may make a brief presentation to the committee. Nominations will be made by the committee and a vote taken for the person to fill the seat that night. This seat will be filled by a Democrat, as the Republican party did not field a candidate in the primary, which was held in March.
Anyone who is interested in being named to the seat should contact Drew County Democratic Committee Chairman Damon Lampkin at 870-723-3084 before June 11.
