Who are the Staunton residents running for a seat on the city council?

It will be a busy (and possibly long) Thursday afternoon and evening for the Staunton City Council as six elected members interview applicants for the vacant City Council seat.

So what is the point?

By the deadline on Friday, January 27, 20 residents submitted applications.

Thirteen of them are newcomers to the city service. Seven have been elected or appointed to city office in the past. At least one now serves on the commission to which he was appointed.

What’s next? And why will Thursday be so busy (and maybe long)?

On Thursday, Feb. 2, at 4:15 p.m., the six-member City Council will meet in the Rita S. Wilson Council Chambers and interview five candidates, according to the city’s website. These interviews, scheduled for 20 minutes each, will likely last until approximately 6:00 p.m. Interviews can be conducted in person or via Zoom.
