Four people are in the running for a spot with the Augusta County Board of Supervisors.
The South River magisterial district seat is vacant since longtime Supervisor David Beyeler passed away last month.
The candidates, two men and two women, fielded questions Monday night from supervisors during interviews at the Verona Government Center.
Chairman Larry Wills says decision-making experience is key.
"They're going to have to have the ability to withstand pressure. They're going to have to have the ability to get up and running fast. We're two weeks from budget,” Wills said.
Supervisors hope to announce their pick at Wednesday night's meeting with the newest member seated with them.
