A new Pulaski County Council member was chosen by a Republican Party Caucus last week.
Republican Chairman Blair Todd told WKVI News that former Pulaski County Commissioner Michael “Big Mike” Tiede was selected in a second round of voting to fill the District 4 seat vacated by Mick Tiede.
Mick Tiede stepped down from his Pulaski County Council seat in order to retain his part-time job in the Pulaski County Assessor’s office. State and local statutes do not allow a county employee to hold a county council seat.
Todd said three candidates filed for the seat. Kent Kroft and Christopher Hudson also submitted interest in serving the constituents in District 4.
“Big Mike” Tiede’s candidacy will be certified by Pulaski County Clerk Tasha Foerg today. He will complete a four-year term.
The next Pulaski County Council meeting is Monday, March 9.
