After the interviews of the six candidates vying for the open Fremont council seat Monday night concluded, the four council members chose their appointment by using a ranking system. Each council member was to rank their top three candidate from 1 to 3. A first place vote was 3 points, a second place vote equaled 2 points and a third place vote was 1 point. Got it?
