Eleven Candidates Vie For City Commission Seat

Eleven Candidates Vie For City Commission Seat

By Beth Milligan

Eleven candidates will compete to fill a vacancy on the Traverse City commission created by the recent resignation of Commissioner Ross Richardson.

Interested candidates had until 5pm Friday to submit their resumes and letters of intent. The broad field of candidates who met the deadline – almost evenly divided between male and female applicants, ranging in age from 24 to 75 – could require commissioners to take two nights instead of one to conduct interviews and make an appointment. A first night of interviews is scheduled for December 8 at 7pm; a second could be scheduled for December 14. At their Monday meeting, commissioners will finalize an interview process and schedule.

In the meantime, The Ticker spoke to all 11 eleven candidates to provide a brief snapshot of those vying to become the next city commissioner.  more
