HUTCHINSON, Kan. – Following a lengthy discussion, the Hutchinson City Council Tuesday morning selected Stuart Conklin and Stacy Goss to fill the two positions opening up on the Council.

Conklin, a partner in Conklin Cars who during his 42-plus year tenure oversaw the day-to-day sales operations for their dealerships, was appointed to fill the Northeast District position being vacated by Jade Piros de Carvalho. Carvalho is resigning at the end of the month. Conklin was the consensus selection of Mayor Jon Richardson, Vice Mayor Greg Fast and Councilman Steven Garza.

Goss, community liaison and marketing director for Hospice and HomeCare of Reno County, will take the at-large seat Sara Bagwell resigned from last month. There were six applicants the Council discussed prior to the vote. Garza made a motion to appoint Michael Jobe, who ran for Reno County Commission last year, but failed to get a second.

Conklin and Goss will join the Council at the February 7th meeting.
