Fremont meeting to interview council applicants scheduled for 5pm Monday

Here are the remaining six applicants competing for the fifth and final open council seat:

David Bonaccorsi and Raj Salwan received the maximum four votes, while Christina Broadwin, Yogi Chugh and John J. Dutra each notched three votes. Rick Jones avoided elimination with two votes.

Those candidates will be interviewed in the council chambers at another special meeting scheduled for 5 p.m. Monday. During the interviews, expected to last 35-40 minutes each, waiting candidates will be sequestered without electronic devices in a nearby room at City Hall, Mayor Bill Harrison said. After a candidate’s interview is completed, he or she may stay to observe the rest of the meeting.

“We’ll do a ranking after the interviews, then do a motion to whittle the six (candidates) down to three,” Harrison said Wednesday. “We’ll start again if we can’t find a consensus.”

See you Monday.
