The Bossier City council is expected to call for an election to replace James "Chubby" Knight, who has resigned effective March 31st.
The election will be held this fall with the other scheduled elections.
As soon as the seat is vacated on March 31st, the council will appoint a replacement to fill in until the election.
Although the council will be taking resumes for the position, it appears in reality that two names are coming up in discussion.
First, Dr. James Rogers, who held the seat until he retired and Knight was elected will likely be favored by Don Williams and Jeff Darby.
Larry Hanisee, who lost the race to Knight, is also in the running. Knight won the race with 557 votes to Hanisee's 507.
I am told that Dr. Rogers has agreed to serve until October if asked by the council.
Hanisee, whether chosen or not, will probably run for the seat in October and would be in a good position to win in either case.
In the meantime, we will be doing some posting on the City Marshal's race which is coming up on April 2nd.
