Two Ward One Residents Submit Interests in Council Vacancy

The vacant seat left by the resignation of former Lansdale Borough Council Vice President Paul Clemente is up for grabs. The borough accepted letters of interest until Dec. 31, 2012, with an appointment on Jan. 16

Come January 16, the battle for the open seat on Lansdale Borough Council comes down to two Ward One residents: Jason Van Dame and Jeffrey Howard.

Council President Matt West informed Patch that the borough received two letters of interest for the open Ward One seat,

Van Dame is a resident of Jenkins Avenue. Howard is a resident of South Chestnut Street.

West said that, as of Wednesday, there are no plans to extend the due date.

Council will appoint either Van Dame or Howard to the vacant seat at its Jan. 16 action meeting.

Whoever is appointed will fulfill Clemente's term, ending Dec. 31, 2013.
