With the resignation of Ward Four Council Member Lindsay McDaniel on April 20th for personal reasons, the city opened up the application process. Janice Brownlee and Calvin Cooley stepped forward and offered themselves for service to the city, but only one could be chosen.

After a brief interview during Thursday night’s work session, the council unanimously appointed Calvin Cooley to the council during Thursday night’s business meeting. Cooley will be sworn in on June 1st.

We will have more on this during Bartow’s Morning News on Friday morning.
