Applicant withdraws from consideration for town council seat

PULASKI — One of eight town residents seeking to fill a vacant seat on Pulaski Town Council has withdrawn her application.
In a Tuesday letter to Mayor Jeff Worrell, Chasity Stevens of North Jefferson Avenue indicates she has decided to wait until the “next election period to run for town council (if I’m still in a position to serve our town at that time).”
Stevens goes on to ask Worrell to let her know if she can “contribute or donate” her time and talents “to assist you in achieving your goals for the town.”
“I’m happy to assist you in any way that I can,” she added.
A native of Pulaski, Stevens works from Pulaski as a senior art director for a Richmond marketing agency.
She said she helps large companies such as Sony Electronics and General Mills succeed through branding, advertising and public relations projects. “I feel that my expertise and experience in marketing can be applied to our town — especially to aid in overcoming the untrue, negative perception that many folks have of Pulaski,” she said in her application.
Stevens conducted her master’s degree thesis research on the revitalization of small-town downtowns as a result of her interest in downtown Pulaski.
She also served as an art director from 1998-2000 and a graphic designer from February 1998 to August 1998.
She is a member of the board of directors for Pulaski Theatre, a founding member of Rotary Club of the New River Valley, marketing and public relations director for Relay for Life, and a volunteer for the LOGOS Program at First Presbyterian Church.
Her husband, Chris, is the fifth generation of his family to operate Stevens Funeral Home.
The other applicants for the position on the town council are:
• Michael (Mike) G. Aamodt of Lee Highway;
• Glenn W. Baublitz Jr. of Collins Drive;
• Elbert G. Black Jr. of Pulaski;
• Robert N. (Nick) Glenn of Pulaski;
• Marilyn Hitesman of Collins Drive;
• H.M. Kidd of Pulaski; and
• Robert E. Wallace of Pleasant Hill Drive.
A special meeting will be held July 29 to interview candidates for the vacant seat. The public is invited to attend the meeting and submit questions for the candidates if they choose.
Questions can be submitted to Town Manager John Hawley at the Municipal Building, prior to the meeting.
The council seat was left vacant when former Councilman Jeff Worrell resigned his seat to become mayor on July 1.
The vacancy on the town council must be filled by Aug. 14.
