City moves forward to fill Seventh Ward Aldermanic vacancy

On Wednesday evening, the Seventh Ward Aldermanic Interview Committee which consisted of Joan Bende, Dick Barton, Jennifer Healy, Missy Langan, Matt Laske, and Rob Leach, convened at City Hall to conduct interviews on four potential candidates to fill the Seventh Ward Aldermanic seat vacated by Marty Maloney on May 3, 2017 after he became Mayor.  Although Mayor Maloney chaired the meeting, he left the decision making solely to the Committee.
Applicants included Martin Joyce, Michael Malatesta, John Duddles, and Jeremy Lefler.  All were asked similar questions by the committee members.   Deliberations were held immediately following the interviews and all candidates were found to be well qualified.  The Committee’s recommendation to Mayor Maloney is Martin Joyce.   
In a communication sent to the Aldermen, Mayor Maloney indicated that he would be bringing forward his  appointment  before the City Council in June.   The approval of this appointment has been placed on the June 5 City Council agenda. 
The meeting was open to the public, streamed live, and will be posted on the City’s website under the meeting materials for the May 31 meeting.
