City officials in Aurora have narrowed the list of potential candidates for mayor to four.
They will be interviewed June 15 by the city council, which is working to fill the vacancy left by the death of Mayor Steve Hogan last month after battling cancer.
The four finalists were selected out of a field of 13 applicants, the Sentinel of Aurora reports.
- Bob Legare, a current at-large council member.
- Debi Hunter-Holen, a former council member.
- Renie Peterson, another former council member.
- Tim Hogan, the late mayor’s son.
Each candidate will be given an hour before the council to make a brief presentation and answer questions.
The council expects to choose a mayor by June 25. The person picked will serve until Hogan’s term ends next year.
Council member Marsha Berzins has been serving as acting mayor, but she is not among the candidates for the permanent position.
