Rainier Council Apps

Posted on 9th January 2012 at 10:05

So far, five people have filed applications for the two open Rainier City Council seats that were opened up by the recall of Russ Moon and Dave Langford. David Sills, James Bradfield, Michael Kelly Miller, Brian Able and Michael Kreger have put their names in the pool, and officials with the town of Rainier say that they’ll continue to accept applications until replacements are chosen for both seats. A City Council workshop is planned for 6:30 this evening, where the remaining Council members will discuss how they’ll proceed further with the replacement process. The regular City Council meeting is scheduled to start at 7 pm. Moon and Langford were removed from office last month, after a petition drive was started, claiming that both men were involved with abuse of city staff and council members, along with allegations of making improper agreements. In each case, more than 70 percent of Rainier’s voters supported the recall.
