The Delaware City Council has announced a process for filling the vacant 2nd Ward council seat, left empty by the resignation of Councilwoman Lisa Keller in November 2022. The council is now accepting applications for the seat, with a deadline of 5 p.m. on January 27, 2023.
Candidates who submit complete applications will be invited to a public meeting for interviews with the City Council on February 6 at City Hall. If necessary, an additional round of interviews may be held. The appointed candidate can seek election to the seat in November 2023, and if successful, would serve the remainder of the term expiring November 2027.
Preference will be given to candidates who obtain 25 signatures of residents of the 2nd Ward (one signature per household) and express an interest in running for the remainder of the unexpired term. However, neither completing the signature form nor running for election in November 2023 are requirements to apply.
