Time is running out for individuals to express their interest in a vacant seat on the Vincennes City Council.
Monday marks the deadline for Democrats within the city’s second district to file for consideration. Knox County Democratic Chairwoman Sandi Stewart has also requested a letter of interest from all individuals throwing their name in the hat.
On January 21st, precinct committeemen Brian Hagen and Rusty Hensley will caucus to cast their votes for the candidate they feel is best suited to fill the seat left vacant by the unexpected passing of Councilman Jim Westfall.
Should Hagen and Hensley fail to come to an agreement, Stewart will have the final say. The second district seat will also be up for grabs in the 2019 Municipal Elections.
