Worrell’s successor sought

PULASKI — Two men who ran for Pulaski Town Council in May but who didn’t receive enough votes to garner a seat have submitted their names as candidates for a spot on the council that became vacant yesterday.
H.M. Kidd and Glenn Baublitz Jr. came in fourth and fifth respectively in May’s race when three seats were up for grabs. At that time, Councilman Joel Burchett Jr. was re-elected, while newcomers Robert Bopp and Morgan Welker were chosen to fill the other two seats.
Another seat became vacant Tuesday when former Councilman Jeff Worrell took over as mayor.
Tuesday marked the beginning of a new fiscal year for the town.
Eight people have submitted letters of interest and resumes for the council vacancy.
Besides Kidd and Baublitz, others applying are:
• Mike Aamodt of 2213 Lee Highway North;
• E. G. (Elbert) Black Jr. of Mashburn Avenue. Black served on town council from 1992-1996 and 2000-2004;
• Robert (Nick) Glenn of Pulaski. Glenn served on town council from 1984-1988, 1990-1994;
• Marilyn Hitesman, 1234 Collins Drive;
• Chasity Stevens of 821 North Jefferson St.; and
• Robert E. Wallace of 2212 Pleasant Hill Drive.
Tuesday night, the Citizens for the Betterment of Pulaski (CBP) presented the Town Council with petitions which the group recently circulated. The petitions call for the Council to fill the vacant seat with the next highest vote-getter in the May election. That would be Kidd.
The submissions were kept unopened until Tuesday when Town Manager John Hawley officially turned them over to Worrell.
Worrell instructed that they be opened and that the letters and resumes be copied for dissemination to the other council members.
Council members will discuss the applicants at a later date. The Council has 45 days to fill the position.
