The Sheridan City Council held a special meeting Monday to fill the Ward Two seat left vacant by John Bigelow's resignation at the end of March. In a blind paper ballot vote, the Council nominated applicant Kristin Kelly to serve the remainder of Bigelow's term, which runs through this year. Kelly is the Corporate Marketing and Communications Specialist for Powder River Energy and has served on the City Planning Commission for the past year.
Kelly says that one of her goals will be to lend an ear to those she represents.
Kelly said that she will run for the seat she now holds during this year's election. The only other applicant for the vacant council seat was Jon Kelly Gooch. Kelly will officially be sworn into her new position at next Monday's Sheridan City Council meeting.
