I just received a question about the opening at City Council. That is a good question! Lori Elder-Christensen was elected to the Council approximately 2 years ago. Once she knew that Mayor Laura Medina planned on retiring from the Council after several years, Lori decided to throw her hat into the election ring to replace her. Lori was elected to be the new mayor a week ago. Now, since she is mayor, she cannot retain her seat as a councilperson. That leaves a vacancy that needs to be filled as quickly as possible. I feel stupid telling you that I don't read many newspapers so I cannot tell you all of the particulars of the ad that was run. I can tell you that all adult citizens of Leoti are welcome to apply for this position. For more details, please call City Hall at 620.375.2341.
I hope that this has helped to clarify the issue but knowing me, it just made it a lot muddier. LOL!
