14 vying for Henderson City Council vacancy

CORRECTION -- 01/13/12 -- A story in Wednesday’s Review-Journal listed an incorrect meeting date for the Henderson City Council to select a new member. The meeting will be at 5:30 p.m. Jan. 23.

One of the Henderson City Council's more lengthy public meetings of the year could be held this month when 14 applicants take turns telling the council why they would be the best person to fill a midterm vacancy.

Former Ward 3 Councilwoman Kathleen Vermillion resigned effective Jan. 3.

The City Council voted Dec. 20 to appoint her replacement rather than hold a special election, saving taxpayers at least $127,000.

Those seeking the post are:

Beverly Daly-Dix, 62, retired school principal

Milton "Milt" Doyle, 62, Air Force retiree

Rich Dreschler, 69, retired banker

Sam Elia, 78, retired economics professor

Kurt Faux, 54, attorney

Sean Fellows, 31, government affairs director, city planning commissioner

Thomas Haugh, accounts management supervisor

Fred Honore, 73, retired

John Kehoe

Erin Lale, 42, author

John Marz, 65, marketing consultant, city planning commissioner

Gary Riggs, 52, insurance agency owner

Catherine Rosenfield, self-employed, longtime city volunteer

Jason Stoffel, 34, attorney
