Danville Mayor Rickey Williams Jr. says he expects to announce soon the person who will become the new alderman from Ward 1. Williams told members of the City Council’s Public Works Committee Tuesday evening that he had met with two candidates for the position earlier in the day. He plans to meet with a third before announcing his selection to fill the existing vacancy in Ward 1.
The vacancy has existed since Williams was selected as Danville’s acting Mayor when former Mayor Scott Eisenhauer left the post. Williams has since won a four year term in the mayor’s office.
