Ruston’s Board of Aldermen has 20 days to appoint someone to fill the unexpired term of late District 2 Alderman Elmore Mayfield.
Mayfield, 70, died Monday. State law requires that vacancies of less than a year be filled by appointment, rather than special election.
Mayfield’s term expires Dec. 31. The appointee will be eligible to run in this fall’s elections if he or she wishes, Ruston City Attorney Bill Carter said Tuesday.
It’s up to Mayor Dan Hollingsworth to recommend an appointee. The mayor was unavailable for comment this morning.
