Grim Would Prefer Knowing Council Candidates; Understands Cohen’s Advice of Anonymity

December 21st, 2018 by WCBC Radio

Although the Cumberland Mayor and City Council thus far has opted not to make public the  names of the individuals who applied to fill  the vacant seat on the Council-  the names are continuing to slowly leak out. The deadline to submit a letter of interest was December 7- however at the advice of legal council there will be no public release of the names- and the plan now is for interviews to be conducted after the new council takes office in January. A selection will be announced sometime shortly afterward.  Although outgoing Mayor Brian Grim says he would prefer that the public know exactly who is being considered for the office- he understands the advice offered by city solicitor Michael Cohen…

Although no official release has taken place, through direct contact with the individuals or through independent sources- WCBC News has learned  the identity of 13 of the 16 applicants. Those include: Andrea Beall; Rhiannon Brown; Stu Czapski; Erin Delong; John Fetchero; Jeff Hedrick; Larry Jackson; Laurie Marchini; Yvonne Perret; Kelly Robertson; John Sangiovani; David Smith and Buck Taylor.
