The five candidates vying to replace the late Fred Atkins on Hopkinsville City Council will make their case for why they are the best choice at tomorrow night’s meeting.
It was announced last week that the five people who filed paperwork to be considered by the remaining 11 council members are Wendell Green, Thomas Grant, Carolsue Daigre, Cornelia Belle and Terri Croney.
Hopkinsville Mayor Dan Kemp recently appeared on the Lite 98.7 Early Bird Show and said it was encouraging that so many residents of Ward 1 were interested in serving.
The Mayor says there is a specific process council will go through to pick a replacement by the end of the night and all five will give statements and answer questions.
Councilman Atkins had served on council since 1999 and had only missed one meeting before becoming ill with a series of strokes in recent months.
