Two Logan County Republican precinct committee members who represent
Republican voters in the new ward served as the selection committee.
Jeff Short, chairman of the selection committee, was pleased with
the quality of the applicants.
"We were very impressed with the credentials, background and
experience of the applicants," said Short. "Unfortunately there was
only one slot to fill."
Carmitchel was recently selected by Lincoln Mayor Keith Snyder to
fill the unexpired term for Alderman Busby's council seat. The
Lincoln City Council voted unanimously to approve the appointment.
