The Braham City Council appointed Jeremy Kunshier to fill a vacant council seat during a special meeting Monday night.
During the discussion, Councilmember Seth Zeltinger noted a need for consistency during Braham’s transition. Zeltinger felt that Kunshier's prior experience will help during this time.
"Great candidates. I wish we knew some more about others," Zeltinger said. "I just think we've had a lot of change. A lot of stuff happened in the last few months... Jeremy has served on council before, and I think that provides the easiest transition."
Kunshier was one of five applicants to fill the position after Ryan Davis resigned from the Braham City Council in November.
Kunshier previously served on the council between 2013 and 2020, and he currently sits on the Planning Commission.
He was appointed in a vote of 3-1. Councilmember Vicky Ethans was the lone no vote. Ethans went on to say that she hopes applicants who were not chosen during the special meeting run for city council during the upcoming election.
Kunshier will serve until a special election can be held in 2022 to fill the remaining two years of the term.
