Four candidates from District IV will be considered this week for the interim Wichita City Council seat.
Michael O'Donnell vacated his seat on the city council when he was elected to serve in the Kansas State Senate this fall.
Candidates Joshua Blick, Jeff Blubaugh, Paul Gray and Stan Reeser were all nominated by the District IV Advisory Board. Three of the candidates were interviewed last week by the board at a public forum in south Wichita.
The District IV Advisory Board will conduct interviews for the interim Wichita City Council seat during a special meeting next week.
Two of the candidates are former city council members and one lost to the outgoing incumbent. The District IV seat in southwest Wichita will open on January 1 after council member Michael O'Donnell resigns on December 31. O'Donnell was elected to the Kansas State Senate in November.
