Albemarle seeks applicants for vacant council seat

Monday, November 25, 2013 — The city of Albemarle is now seeking applications for the District 3 seat on the Albemarle City Council.

The seat will be vacated by current councilman Ronnie Michael when he takes up a new seat as mayor on Dec. 2.  The person appointed will serve out the remainder of his term, which ends December 2015.

In order to qualify for the position, applicants must be living in District 3, which is roughly the northern portion of the city.  Since Michael was elected as a Democrat, applicants must be registered Democrats as well.

In order to make the appointment as soon as possible, the council has asked that all applications be submitted by Dec. 10.

The application consists of a personal information questionnaire, a history of past work experience and three short answer questions. The application can be found at the web address

For those who are unsure if they fall within District 3, a district map is available at Voting-District.
