Two people have filed for the open City Council seat left vacant by the resignation of Ward 3 Representative Deb Foster.


On Friday, former councilman Randy Lubenow of 217 S. Hampton Street filed for the open seat. Also Friday, Terry Riggs of 210 S. Elm Street filed for the Ward 3 seat.  Lubenow was  narrowly defeated by Foster in the general election last November.

The selection will go to the Fairmont City Council at its March 27 meeting where the council will need to appoint one of the two by majority vote. If the council fails to do so, the decision will go to a special election.
