The TAB’s Trevor Jones had an oped column today that raised the suggestion that if Alderman Scott Lennon were to resign from his Ward 1 seat now, voters could have the opportunity to fill both the At Large and Ward 1 aldermen seats during the June special election.
According to City Clerk David Olson, Lennon could resign before the end of March and free both seats for the special election, but Lennon said that’s not something he’s considering.
As a reminder, Allan Ciccone, Sr. and Alison Leary, have both announced they would like to run for the Ward 1 seat. Lennon is the only person who has announced his plans to run at large. So if only the At Large seat is filled in June, then the ward seat will be vacant until November.
