Top four candidates selected for vacant Leesburg Council seat

Leesburg Town Council on Monday will hear presentations from four candidates vying for appointment to fill Mayor Kelly Burk’s vacated council seat, according to town officials.

The four candidates are Jed Babbin, Hugh Forsythe, Rusty Foster and Gwen Pangle.

The four were selected from among 12 applicants who submitted letters of interest and professional resumes to the clerk of council. The mayor and council members individually reviewed the applications and each provided the Clerk with their top three candidates in ranked order. The aggregated results yielded four top candidates because there was a tie for third.

Following the candidates’ presentations on Jan. 9, the council is expected to deliberate and may vote to appoint one of the candidates to fill the vacant council seat until a special election is held.

Council next Monday is also expected to discuss and possibly determine the date on which the special election may be held.
