POMEROY — With the resignation of Mary McAngus formally accepted on Monday night, the process now turns to finding the person who will serve the remainder of her term as Mayor of Pomeroy.
The Pomeroy Mayor seat will appear on the November General Election ballot, along with four council seats from the Village of Pomeroy.
Becky Johnston, director of the Meigs County Board of Elections, said that Independent candidates who wish to be considered for the mayor position must file a nominating position no later than 4 p.m. on the 10th day after the vacancy occurred.
According to Pomeroy Village Solicitor Michael Barr, the seat officially became vacant on Feb. 11, meaning the deadline for independent candidates would be Feb. 21.
Partisan candidates have until 4 p.m. on Aug. 12 to file for the mayor position.
Filing deadlines for the open council seats are different than the deadlines for the mayor seat.
The deadline for partisan council candidates has already passed, but independent candidates can file until 4 p.m. on May 6.
