The West Sacramento City Council is on track to fill a vacant seat on the council tonight.

Mayor Christopher Cabaldon and Mayor Pro Tem Mark Johannessen have winnowed a list of 25 applicants into a short list of six “finalists,” invited to interview at tonight’s public city council meeting.

Finalists are:

— Bernadette Austin of Hearst Street, a project manager for an infill development company (she’s now on the city’s parks and community services commission);

— Nate Eckler of Pender Island Road, director of technology at a high-tech firm;

— Kyle Glankler of Quail Road, who is in construction management;

— Martha Guerrero of Barberry Place, a social worker (her resume indicates she is now legislative representative for Los Angeles County, and is a city planning commissioner)

— Dean Haakenson of Julian Drive, an analyst/paralegal for the state;

— Beverly Sandeen of Lewiston Road, a higher education administrator (and current member of the city planning commission).

After a closed-session meeting at 6:30 p.m., the public meeting opens at 7. The meeting takes place at city hall, 1110 West Capitol Avenue.
