The Anne Arundel County Council has posted its procedures for appointing the next county executive, following John Leopold's resignation last week.
Anyone interested in applying for the job has until noon on Feb. 15 to submit a resume to Elizabeth Jones, the administrative officer to the council. Applicants must also submit a financial disclosure statement and answers to a questionnaire (available here).
The council will interview candidates and vote on a resolution to appoint the new county executive at a public hearing on Feb. 21 at 7 p.m. The council will vote on candidates until one receives a simple majority of four votes.
Applicants must have been registered as a Republican for at least the last 12 months, must be at least 25 years old and have lived in Anne Arundel County for at least four years.
