Council hopes to settle on Djou's successor by Thursday

Advertiser Staff

City Council members could decide who will replace Congressman Charles Djou as their ninth member at a meeting Thursday, Chairman Todd Apo said this morning.

Seekers of the District 4 seat, which stretches from Hawaii Kai to Ala Moana, have until Tuesday to submit a resume to the council.

The Executive Matters and Legal Affairs Committee will meet at 1 p.m. Thursday.

Chaired by Apo, it comprises all council members.

Apo said he hopes a majority of council members can come to an agreement that day so that a resolution can be drafted with a prospective candidate. That resolution would then be considered by the full council at its next regularly scheduled meeting on June 9.

Any candidate for the job must first be bonded under city law. Apo said the cost for that would be paid by the council.
