TAMARAC (CBS4) – Of 11 resident applicants, the City of Tamarac has chosen a commissioner to fill the position’s vacant seat.
The city appointed long-time Tamarac resident Marion Swenson to serve as commissioner for District 1.
The position opened in early March when former commissioner Pamela Bushnell was selected by her peers to leave her position and serve as mayor.
The commission seat was open to all residents of District 1. Eleven applicants were interviewed and on March 28th the Commission narrowed the choice down to three: Constance Earle, Marion Swenson, and Lawrence Wark.
Swenson, former city clerk for the city and paralegal, was selected of the top three candidates during a special committee meeting that was open to the public on Monday afternoon.
Swenson will serve for the remainder of the current term, which ends in November 2012.
The next regularly scheduled commission meeting is scheduled for April 13th at 7 p.m.
