The Lackawanna City Council on Monday interviewed four applicants for the vacant 1st Ward seat.
The four applicants – Abdulsalam Noman, Andrea Haxton, John Ingram and Richard Baldelli – were interviewed in Council Chambers before the start of its meeting.
All but Ingram previously served as city trustees.
Mohamed Albanna defeated Ingram to win election in November to the 1st Ward seat, but the Appellate Division ruled in January the Lackawanna businessman could not serve because of a previous felony conviction.
The City Council is expected to vote on the vacancy when it convenes on Monday, March 5.
