Residents of city’s 4th District have until 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 20, to apply

    Only one person has applied to fill Port Washington’s 4th District aldermanic seat, which was vacated by Ald. Doug Biggs on Sept. 15.
    That person is Dan Benning, 1012 Jade St., who in his letter of application noted he has been a resident of the city and the district for 9-1/2 years.
    Benning said he has been employed by Johnson Controls for the past 28 years, most recently as an information technology director, and is involved in a variety of community activities.
    He has worked with teams staging the annual Port Christmas parade through Port Main Street Inc., Benning said, and served in various roles with Grand Avenue United Methodist Church.
    Applications for the seat representing the 4th District, which encompasses much of the city’s south and southeast sides, are due at City Hall by 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 20.
    The Common Council will interview applicants at their Tuesday, Nov.  7, meeting and could appoint a new alderman that night.
    The new alderman would serve until April, when Biggs’ term would have expired.
    Candidates for the spring election for the seat can begin to circulate nomination papers beginning Dec. 1. Daily Press
