(Rising Sun, Ind.) - A Democrat caucus has selected the second person to fill a Rising Sun City Council vacancy since the original candidate was elected.
Roy Powell was elected to the District 1 seat in November 2011. He resigned last year due to health reasons, with Jillian Need selected by a caucus of the Ohio County Democrat Party to fill the remainder of Powell’s term.
Now, Need is stepping down. The Rising Sun Recorder reports that Need has moved out of District 1.
On Saturday, September 21, the Democrat Party caucused again. Jim McDaniel was elected to fill the seat.
McDaniel’s first council meeting will be October 3, the newspaper reported.
