Three candidates, two who applied to be city clerk and one vying for treasurer, are no longer in the running, officials said Thursday evening as a special meeting called to choose individuals for the interim positions began.
David Ellman, who applied to be city treasurer, withdrew his application, as did Rena Nelms, who applied for city clerk. Alan Hearne, who also applied for the city clerk job, did not submit a complete application and was disqualified.
A total of 17 people applied for the two open positions, made vacant by the retirements of City Clerk Margarita Campos and Treasurer Donna Anderson. Each of the 14 remaining applicants will have three minutes to pitch themselves to the City Council, and the Council, in turn, will ask questions of each person for 10 minutes.
The council is expected to make its decision by this evening.
