Ward 1 Councilman

Received word that a new Councilman has been selected!

As I was one of the 13 candidates to have submitted their names for consideration, but I was not selected.

But, I do appreciate the call I received from Mary Louise Madigan Ward 4 Councilperson regarding  their decision.

UPDATE: March 3, 2011

From - Interesting comment is made:
Madigan read aloud the name of each candidate to gauge the group’s interest level in conducting an interview. If a single councilperson responded in the affirmative, the resident would be granted an interview opportunity. Many names prompted an immediate response, but there were some awkward silences. Timothy Carroll, for instance, who is a fine candidate, was on the cusp of being declined for an interview until Bullock spoke up at the last moment.
I'll let the record reflect that each applicant was given 10-15 minutes before the panel, so their decision was based on that and their own views.
