There were 20 applicants for Sena Magill’s former seat on Charlottesville City Council (this Daily Progress article gave short profile information about each) and today the City announced that it has narrowed the field to six.
There’s no election for this opening; the current City Council members will choose one of the six finalists to serve out Sena’s term on Feb 21. A public community input session will take place this Monday, Feb. 6; you can go to City Council’s meeting page if you want to sign up to get a seat at the live meeting, to get a link to watch virtually, or to register to participate or speak.
