    Only one person applied to fill Port Washington’s 4th District aldermanic seat by the Oct. 20 deadline.
    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.
    The aldermanic seat was vacated by Ald. Doug Biggs on Sept. 15.
    The Common Council is expected to interview Benning at its Tuesday, Nov.  7, meeting and could appoint him 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
