Five People Under Consideration for Champaign City Council Seat


A total of five people will be vying for a vacant Champaign city council seat.

Two additional people have submitted applications, in addition to Paul Faraci, Catherine Emanuel, and Jim McGuire, who are also seeking the District 5 seat in a write-in election this April. Former Champaign County Board member and township official Linda Cross, and Steve Meid of Signature Homes also met Tuesday's noon deadline with hopes of holding the seat on an interim basis.

The Champaign City Council seat became vacant following the appointment of Gordy Hulten as Champaign County clerk.

Interviews will be held at next Tuesday's city council meeting, and an appointment will be made Feb. 1.
