Gresham city councilors will interview seven potential new city council candidates, then vote to appoint and swear in the new councilor on Tuesday, Aug. 21. That's a lot of interest for a volunteer job. But it's good to see so many folks in Gresham who want to invest in their community.
"Council hopefuls who filed applications for Position 1 by the Wednesday, Aug. 15, deadline include David Widmark, Jenni Simonis, Tom Giusto, Michael McCormick, Darren Hippenstiel, John Kilian and Jason Ogan." Click here to read the entire article at the Gresham Outlook.
I have no idea who they'll select. I think the city council meeting starts at 3pm. Maybe I'll stop by and watch.
