KANNAPOLIS ó One applicant for a vacant seat on the Kannapolis City Council has pulled her name out of consideration, leaving 15 contenders.
Sandi Billings, the assistant clerk of court for Cabarrus County, told the Kannapolis City Council she is withdrawing her name so she can focus on her boss’ upcoming election.
Fred Biggers will seek reelection for clerk of superior court for Cabarrus County in 2010, Billings said.
“I want to devote my time and energy to this important election,” she wrote in an e-mail.
An employee of the clerk’s office for more than 22 years, Billings said she wants to make sure that the office remains under Biggers’ leadership.
Kannapolis City Council members received an overwhelming response when they asked the community for applicants to fill a seat left vacant when council member Richard Anderson died last month.
The application deadline was last week.
