Council accepting resumes for South District seat

With Michael P. Kearns leaving City Hall for Albany, the Buffalo Common Council has the power to appoint his successor.

(Kearns filed his letter of resignation, effective the end of business Wednesday. Read it here.)

The city is advertising the South Council seat vacancy, and interested parties must submit a letter requesting appointment and a resume by the close of business April 5.

In order to qualify for the appointment, under city code, applicants must be Democrats (same affiliation as Kearns) and live in the South Council District. (Here's a district map.)

Materials should be sent to the City Clerk's Office, 1308 City Hall, Buffalo, N.Y., 14202.

The term of any appointee would run through the end of the year, with the seat up for election in November for a full term starting Jan. 1, 2013.
