After Seattle’s City Council announced 8 finalists to fill the vacant position 9 council seat vacated by former councilmember Sally Clark earlier this week, the Emerald sent interview request to those finalists living within the South Seattle area.

They will then appoint a replacement for the position at Monday’s City Council meeting, which will take place at 2:00pm.
