CHANDLER, Ariz. – The Chandler City Council will hold a Special Meeting on June 25th at 3:30 p.m. to interview candidates for the vacant City Council seat formerly held by Nora Ellen, who resigned to seek elected office at the Arizona State Legislature. The interviews will be held in the Council Chambers, 88 E. Chicago Street. A candidate will be appointed to serve on the City Council through the current term, which expires in January 2021. 

The City Council reviewed applications of 36 candidates during an Executive Session on June 11th and selected nine candidates for interviews.

The candidates include:

Dr. William Crawford III

Matt Eberle

Victor Hardy

Aaron Harris Sr.

Jill Hudson

Jeremy McClymonds

Diane Ortiz-Parsons

John Repar

The nine candidates offer a variety of experiences as educators, administrators, business professionals, attorneys, engineers and faith leaders. They also serve the community through the City’s boards and commissions as well as with business, education and community service organizations.

"I want to thank all of the applicants for their interest in serving the community in this capacity," Mayor Jay Tibshraeny said. "The Council spent hours reviewing all of the applications, and has narrowed the list of candidates down to these nine individuals. This was a hard process, and we had to make some tough choices. With that said, we have an excellent pool of very engaged residents to choose from and look forward to the interviews on June 25th."

The selected candidate will be sworn in by June 29.
