ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Roanoke City Council will interview candidates to replace former councilwoman, Djuna Osborne, at its next meeting on Oct. 5.

Candidates will answer council members’ questions during the 2 p.m. meeting. Then the public can offer its input that night at 7 p.m.

Council will make its final selection during its session set for Oct. 19.

Osborne resigned her position on Sept. 14.  She said increasing family obligations as a mother and an educator during a pandemic made it too difficult for her to remain on council.

The person selected will serve out the remainder of Osborne’s term, which is set to expire Dec. 31, 2022.
