Council race gets two more candidates
Barring last-minute developments, the Lewisburg City Council will have three choices to fill the vacant 3rd Ward seat on the panel.
Today is the deadline for applicants.
Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. in City Hall is where and when the council is to vote on a successor to former Councilman Elvin White who resigned this winter. It's one of a couple of extra meetings this month to deal with various issues.
Ronald C. Robinson of 623 Franklin Ave. applied in a letter dated April 2 saying that he'd like to serve the unexpired portion of White's term.
Charles K. Miller of 442 Haynes St. submitted a letter at City Hall on Tuesday requesting that he be elected to succeed White.
Jeff Ellis, proprietor of Lewisburg Auction Gallery and The Emporium on Lewisburg's public square, was the first to apply. His announcement was published here last week.
The applicant selected by council would serve until the winner of Lewisburg's 3rd Ward election in May 2009.
"I am very interested in the progress of Lewisburg," said Robinson who is the executive director of the city's Public Housing Authority, and a man who has served as a county commissioner.
Miller lists a five-point platform for his proposed service on the council: restoration of law and order; development of business partnerships; restoration of open government; development of a city partnership with county schools; and restoration of accountability in local government. . . .
