TROY – "We're in dire need of council members," Betty Linne said at a regular Troy Town Council meeting Wednesday.
Bob Tuggle had just informed the remaining members, Susie Fortwendel and Ed Sweeney, that "I'm officially not a resident of Troy any more." Explaining he had sold his home, he told them "you're going to have to come up with somebody."
Linne said political affiliation doesn't matter.
"Two seats are Democrat, but they've been gone long enough that we can appoint someone," she said.
