Hampton City Council Looking For A New Member

HAMPTON—Councilwoman Chris Snead will leave her seat on City Council when she assumes the office of Treasurer of Hampton on January 1. Hampton City Council is seeking applicants for an interim appointment to fill her seat. The person would serve from January 1 through December 31 of next year.

Hampton City Council has seven members, including an elected mayor and a vice mayor who is selected from among the other six council members every two years, when elections are held. In addition to making city policy, the City Council appoints the city manager, who is the chief administrator and executive officer of the city; the clerk of council; and the city attorney.

The current Hampton City Council includes Mayor Donnie Tuck; Vice Mayor Jimmy Gray; and council members Chris Bowman, Elanor, Weston Brown, Steven L. Brown, W.H. “Billy” Hobbs, Jr., and Chris Osby Snead.

Councilwoman Snead’s term was scheduled to end December 31, 2024, but it is likely a special election will be held in November 2022 to allow the voters to decide who will fill the remaining two years of the term.
