SALISBURY — The Wicomico County Council this week put out a call for candidates to replace the late Councilman Bob Caldwell, whose passing earlier this month vacated the District 4 seat.
The county charter states when a council vacancy occurs before the end of the term of office, the Central Committee of the party to which the respective member so vacating was affiliated, shall prepare and submit to the County Council a list of four nominees for the vacated council seat. Each of the nominees must be of the same political affiliation and reside in the same district as the council member whose seat has become vacant.
As Caldwell was a registered Republican, the Wicomico County Republican Central Committee is seeking District 4 Republicans who are interested in being nominated for appointment to the County Council. The GOP Central Committee is asking for all materials to be submitted to the Committee by Oct. 31. The GOP Central Committee will screen all applicants and it plans to conduct interviews on Nov. 7.
Interested persons should contact Dave Parker, Central Committee Chairman, at 410-749-4030, or WiCoGOPChair@yahoo.com.
