The Lawrenceville City Council will fill an open seat at its Feb. 4 meeting. But, first, the body wants to see some candidates.
Councilman Tony Powell resigned at the first council meeting of 2019 in order to fulfill a campaign promise to serve only eight years in the position. His term has 11 months remaining, so the council must choose a replacement.
Those interested should send a letter to the city clerk’s office by 5 p.m. Jan. 24. That letter should include a brief biography, contact information and a description of their past involvement in city government. Candidates should also verify that they have been a registered voter and lived in Lawrenceville for at least a year. Letters can be sent via mail to Karen Pierce, City Clerk, City of Lawrenceville P.O. Box 2200 Lawrenceville, Georgia 30046. They can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The chosen candidate will be announced at the Feb. 4 council meeting. The new member’s first official meeting will be at the Feb. 16 work session.
