Summit Daily/Jim PokrandtCouncil members voted for Dede Dighero-Tuso to replace Bob Moscatelli.

FRISCO – Town Councilmember and Mayor Pro Tem Dede Dighero-Tuso was elected mayor Tuesday to fill the vacancy left by Bob Moscatelli’s resignation.

The vote of the five council members left after the mayor and Tom Connolly resigned was unanimous.

Council members are now seeking applicants for two seats, Dighero-Tuso’s and Connolly’s. The five will interview and appoint replacements at the Dec. 9 town council meeting.

To apply, people must be a resident for 12 consecutive months prior to appointment and a registered town voter.

Those who have been convicted of embezzlement, bribery, perjury, solicitation of bribery or subornation of perjury need not apply.

Interested citizens can pick up a candidate’s packet at town hall. Letters of interest must be filed by 5 p.m. Dec. 2.

For information, call town clerk Jo-Anne Tyson at (970) 668-5276, ext. 3028.

Both appointees and Dighero-Tuso face election next April.
