Pastor Kent Simmons was the first to express interest in serving out the term of Mark Abram, the former Kingman City council member who stepped down while relocating to north Phoenix. Simmons submitted his resume and letter of interest in being appointed to the position on Thursday, February 23.

Former Council member Erin Cochran said she will also be putting her hat into the ring for appointment considerations. Any other citizen who is eligible and interested has until the March 14 deadline to turn in application materials at the Kingman City Clerk's office.
