The names of the applicants seeking Deborah Graham’s former seat in the Illinois House are now published on the Democratic Party of Oak Park’s Web site.
The list was originally slated to be made public on Monday, but a spam filter prevented one applicant’s resume from reaching the inbox, said Mary Howorth, executive director of the Democratic Party of Oak Park.
Among the seven applicants are:
– Rev. Marshall Hatch, pastor of New Mount Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church who applied to be 29th Ward alderman, the post Graham assumed earlier this month.
Committeemen will publicly interview applicants on April 24 at the Carleton Hotel in Oak Park. That’s the day before committeemen must name a replacement for the 78th Representative District. By law, committeemen have the power to fill vacant state legislative positions, and they must do so within 30 days.
