Eight vying for council appointment

PULASKI — Eight people submitted letters of interest for the Pulaski Town Council position that will become available Tuesday.
Town Manager John Hawley said only five of the eight submissions had names and return addresses on the outside of the envelope. The identities of the other three candidates will not be revealed until Mayor-elect Jeff Worrell opens them Tuesday.
The other applications carried the following names and return addresses:
• Mike Aamodt of 2213 Lee Highway North;
• E. G. (Elbert) Black Jr. of Mashburn Avenue. Black served on the town council from 1992-1996 and 2000-2004;
• Robert (Nick) Glenn of Pulaski. Glenn served on the town council from 1984-1988, 1990-1994;
• Hitesman, with no first name listed, 1234 Collins Drive. A Marilyn Hitesman is listed in the telephone book as living at that address; and
• Robert E. Wallace of 2212 Pleasant Hill Drive.
Hawley said Thursday that the submissions would remain unopened until Tuesday, when Worrell officially becomes mayor. At that time, they will all be turned over to Worrell for opening.
Hawley anticipates copies of the letters of interest and resumes to be provided to all council members to review prior to the July 15 council meeting. That would allow councilmen to discuss the candidates at that meeting.
After reviewing the applicants’ submissions, it will be up to the Town Council to appoint one to fill Worrell’s seat.
Worrell was elected mayor in the May town elections.
He had to resign his position on the Town Council before taking over as mayor. That resignation officially takes effect on Tuesday, July 1.
Two new councilmen, Morgan Welker and Robert Bopp, also were elected in May and will officially take office next Tuesday.
