Council member sought

PULASKI — Wanted: Qualified Town of Pulaski voter willing to dedicate the next two years to representing town residents.
It may not be an official job advertisement, but Pulaski Town Council is looking for someone to fill the council seat that will be left vacant when current Councilman Jeff Worrell becomes mayor July 1.
“I guess (Town Council members are) looking for a resume and something saying why the person wants to be on council — anything they can tell council about themselves,” Town Manager John Hawley said of the search for a fifth member.
Hawley set a 5 p.m. June 26 deadline for the information to be submitted to his office. It may either be hand delivered or may be mailed to P.O. Box 660, Pulaski, VA 24301. Either way, the information should be placed in an envelope clearly marked “Council Application.”
Hawley said it is his intention to provide all of the applications to the Town Council unopened. If a submission isn’t clearly marked, it may accidentally be opened.
Hawley pointed out that just because the Council is accepting “applications” for the vacancy does not mean the representative will be selected from the submissions.
“This is not binding by the Town Council,” he said, explaining that there is no requirement the applicant be selected from the submissions. “They can still bring in someone else if they choose.”
The only formal requirement that must be met is for the person chosen to be qualified to vote in the town.
All other criteria are up to the Town Council, Hawley added.
Hawley said he thinks Town Council members will decide which applicants they want to interview before making a decision, but he acknowledged he has not had any extensive conversations with them regarding the process.
Hawley is hoping that the Town Council will have a new member appointed by its second meeting in July.
