On Wednesday, September 1, 2021, the Cape Coral City Council will select a new District 6 Representative to serve in the seat vacated with the resignation of Mr. Williams.
Based on the City Charter, Council has 30 days to select a candidate's replacement or a special election must be held.
Fourteen candidates applied for the position inside the filing deadline of August 27, 2021. This chosen candidate will serve the remainder of Mr. Williams' term, until November of 2022, when the next general election is scheduled.
Council Members and the Mayor have been interviewing the candidates in preparation for their vote on Wednesday. I encourage you to review the candidates' credentials and familiarize yourself with the candidates by clicking the link below.
|I am excited so many qualified candidates surfaced for this important position and I want to thank all of the candidates who stepped up and are willing to serve our city. You may view the City Council Meeting live here on Wednesday.
The meeting begins at 4:30 p.m. and the vote is scheduled toward the end of the meeting.
John Bashaw, President
