City accepting council applicants again today

May 7, 2012

More candidates are stepping forward, offering their resumes in an effort to become Buffalo's next South District Councilmember.

After reviewing an earlier group of 11 candidates, council leaders asked for more applicants who would like to take over the seat left vacant since Mickey Kearns moved on to the state Assembly earlier this year.

Councilmembers are charged with selecting Kearns' successor but have not been able to reach a consensus on any previous candidate.

Five new candidates have applied for the post.

Resumes will be accepted until 5 p.m. today.
