Applications are now being accepted for the interim replacement for Ward 4 City Councilor George Poling, who resigned from his seat effective April 10, 2017. Applicants must reside in Ward 4, be a legal elector under the laws and constitution of the state, and be a resident of the city for one year immediately before being appointed to office. Interviews with Mayor Lucy Vinis and the Eugene City Council will be scheduled in early June. The application deadline is Friday, May 19, 2017.
The target date for the interim appointment is June 26, 2017, and the person appointed will serve until a successor is duly elected in 2018 (12 – 18 months). A primary election will be held in May 2018, for the regular four-year Ward 4 term to begin in January 2019.
