The deadline has arrived. Eleven candidates have thrown their names into the hat to become an interim Albemarle County supervisor. That person will fill the Scottsville District - and Chris Dumler's - seat until a special election this fall.
The applicants are as follows:
Edward Strickler - a Democrat who works at the University of Virginia
Kevin Quick - an independent realtor
Anne Bedarf - an independent senior manager at the Green Blue Institute
William "Petie" Boston Craddock - an independent sales representative
Richard Armstrong - a Democrat and attorney
Cindi Burket - a Republican and former Albemarle County School Board candidate
Adrian Weselin - an independent COO at Metropolis, Inc.
Pradip Phukan - a Republican civil engineer
Nancy Carpenter - an independent former planning technician
Richard Randolph - a Democrat and home services provider
Terry Hawkins - a Republican retired Albemarle County sheriff
County insiders didn't know what to expect in terms of the number of people who would apply. Four applications came in on Thursday alone.
"It's been a very unprecedented situation so we weren't sure what to expect so up until yesterday or the day before, they were coming in at a very slow pace. It has picked up over the last day or so to the point where we now have 11," said Lee Catlin, Albemarle County spokesperson.
Supervisors will review the information, hear from the candidates on July 3 and make a decision July 10.
