Isiah Carey posts an interesting bit of news tonight: Mayor White plans to ask the state legislature for a change to the law that requires a special election to fill the Council seat formerly held by Doctor-Congresswoman Shelley Sekula Gibbs. The Mayor would like to let the seat remain vacant until the regular election in November.

Carey further notes that Councilmember Anne Clutterbuck thinks Mayor White should appoint someone to fill the seat until an election can be held.

UPDATE: Here’s a link to the report Carey did for KRIV-26.
