Harrisburg city council close to naming Smith replacement

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) - Harrisburg City Council has begun the process of replacing the late Councilwoman Eugenia Smith.

Thursday night, council members heard from 12 candidates about why they want to fill the post.  That list was then narrowed down to four and those finalists were given an in-depth interview.

Council President Wanda Williams said they are looking for someone who is knowledgeable about the city's finances.

"Also we're looking for someone who will be independent, an independent thinker, who's not aligned to anyone in the administration. We want someone who's thinking about the residents and puts them first," Williams said.

The new council member will be announced on Monday.
