The second district seat on the Wicomico County Council remains unfilled with the 45 day deadline looming.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the council rejected all four prospective candidates citing residency concerns.

Council President John Cannon told the paper that the council had “a series of issues” that arose before a vote.

He said that the council will ask for new recommendations from the Republican Central Committee.

Marc Kilmer announced his resignation on May 2nd with four names eventually recommended by the committee.

They were Julie Brewington, Joseph Collins, Nicole Acle and Austin Whitehead.

All four were interviewed by the council during two work sessions.
