Hamilton GOP announces plans to fill open seat on council

After going through a week of meetings, press conferences and interviews to install Mayor Kelly Yaede, the local Republican party sets out to do it again.

Because she sat on council, because she couldn't be both on council and mayor and because she's Republican, the local party now has about 12 days to provide three names to replace her seat. Michael Chianese, the township GOP chair, said in an email they will be accepting resumes until this Friday.

The nominees, who have to be registered Republicans, then go through a selection process with the township committee before they select three names. Those then get forwarded to the council by the end of next week.

Council votes on that person to serve until a special election next fall, when Yaede will be on the ballot as well.
