Ten people interested in open Defiance City Council seat

Ten peo­ple have expressed inter­ested and sub­mit­ted their names for con­sid­er­a­tion in fill­ing a Defi­ance City Coun­cil seat that will become vacant next week.
At-large Coun­cil­man Mike Ketcham plans to give up his at-large seat to become coun­cil pres­i­dent on Tues­day. He will replace Mike McCann, who was elected mayor in Novem­ber and assume his new office on Fri­day. McCann and Ketcham each were elected to coun­cil in Novem­ber 2013, and have served half of their four-year terms.
The 10 can­di­dates will be given the chance to address coun­cil in pub­lic ses­sion at council’s Jan. 12 meet­ing, with five min­utes to explain “who they are, what they have done and why they want to be a coun­cil person.”
