Applicants Sought for Vacancy on Bowie City Council

The City of Bowie is seeking applicants to fill the term of former District 3 Councilmember Courtney Glass, who recently resigned from her seat on the City Council for health reasons and because she is moving out of the district she was elected to represent. In accordance with the City Charter, Council will appoint her replacement and that individual will serve until the next City election in November  2019.

Qualifications for applicants are as follows:

  • Shall be at least 18 years of age;
  • Shall have resided in the City of Bowie at least one year;
  • Shall reside in District 3; and

City Council will interview each of the applicants on a date to be determined in late January and then make its selection to fill the vacancy. According to the City’s Charter, when a Council vacancy occurs less than 15 months before the next election, the City Council shall appoint an individual to fill the vacancy. The appointment requires a favorable vote by a majority of the remaining Councilmembers. When the vacancy occurs 15 months or more before the term ends, the replacement is selected by a special election.
