THREE VIE FOR OPEN SEAT ON ROLLING­WOOD COUN­CIL

Austin American-Statesman - - LOCAL BRIEFING -

Rolling­wood re­ceived three ap­pli­ca­tions for its open al­der­man seat on the City Coun­cil: two re­cent can­di­dates and a for­mer al­der­man.

Barry Bone, who leads the Rolling­wood Util­ity Com­mis­sion, and Kelli Carl­ton, who leads the Rolling­wood Park Com­mis­sion, both ran un­suc­cess­fully for two spots on the City Coun­cil in the May 8 elec­tion. Leslie Davis, who served on the coun­cil from 2001 to 2007, also ap­plied for the open seat.

At its meet­ing Wed­nes­day, the coun­cil was ex­pected to con­sider ap­point­ing one of the ap­pli­cants to the va­cant seat. The ap­pli­ca­tion dead­line was July 15.

The open­ing was cre­ated af­ter Al­der­man Bill Hamil­ton ran for mayor in May.

The coun­cil voted 3-1 last month to ap­point an al­der­man by an ap­pli­ca­tion process. Rox­anne McKee voted against the move.
