Any Vanleer resident interested in serving on the Board of Aldermen should contact the mayor or an alderman in the next couple of weeks. The board is looking for someone to complete the term of Donald “Bubba” Tinsley, who resigned in December just two months into a two-year term. At Monday night’s meeting, Mayor Larry Robertson said he had been advised by town attorney Tim Potter to post a notice of the board’s intent to fill a vacancy and allow time for interested residents to submit their names. Robertson said he would post a notice at Town Hall, the bank and maybe other places in town with the phone numbers of the four remaining aldermen so interested residents can contact them before the board’s work session on Feb. 18. He said the board will choose someone to fill the remainder of Tinsley’s term at its Feb. 25 meeting. Anyone interested in serving must have been a resident of Vanleer for at least one year and be an eligible voter, meaning over 18 years old and not have lost voting rights due to a felony conviction. Tinsley received the second-highest number of votes in the Nov. 6 election of five aldermen for two-year terms. At the first meeting of the new board, Tinsley was replaced as chief of the Vanleer Volunteer Fire Department even though there is no statute that prohibits him from serving in both positions. Tinsley had been chief since 1996 and also previously served as an alderman. Eleven candidates were on the ballot in November with Jimmy Bass finishing with the sixth-highest vote total in the election of five candidates.
