The deadline for applications to fill two vacancies on the Lovettsville Town Council has passed, leaving the town with four candidates to consider.
The Town Council will conduct interviews at its Oct. 18 meeting with four candidates seeking to fill two spots on the dais—Rebekah Nicole Ontiveros; David Steadman, a director of applications development at DLA Piper and a member of American Legion Lovettsville Post 1836; Tony Quintana, a former business solutions director at Exostar who was appointed to the council in March to fill a vacancy left by Tiffany Carder; and Nicholas Hayward, who ran for a spot on the dais in the May 1 town elections but missed out by four votes.
Two Town Council vacancies were left on Sept. 6, when Renee Edmonston and Mike Senate resigned. Virginia law requires the appointments to be made by Oct. 21 and the council expects to make them immediately following interviews on Oct. 18.
The interim council members will serve until a special election is held some time in February.
