Setting it straight

According to Mexico Beach city clerk Adrian Welle, the city’s interpretation of the charter is that the seat will be filled until the April 2014 election – three months instead of 15 months – and if the appointee wishes to remain in that post, he/she will have to run for re-election in April and whoever wins the seat will then serve a one-year term, to bring that seat back into its regular election cycle.

Additionally, the entire Mexico Beach City Council requested the special meeting in January to consider applicants. The mayor does not have that power on his own; as my letter suggested.
