The Californian ran an article a few days ago that named as many as seven persons with a chance at getting appointed to the city council seat left vacant after Fred Twyman passed away.

Among those named...

Scott Mann
Carol Sullivan
Dean Deines
Marc Miller
Tony Amatulli
Bill Zimmerman
Chris Thomas

According to the article, it's likely that the city council will appoint someone to fill the vacant seat.

So, if it's done by appointment, that appointee has to win votes from at least three of the four seated council members, Wallace Edgerton, John Denver, Darcy Kuenzi, and Tom Fuhrman.

The article in The Californian gave a lot of press coverage to Scott Mann. However, it seems unlikely he can get three of those four votes. For one, he was defeated by Tom Fuhrman, who was quoted in the article saying that he's actually in favor of appointing Marc Miller. The article also quoted Darcy Kuenzi in such a way to suggest that she wouldn't be giving him the nod either.

Also consider that with the new 2010 Census data available, the city council districts will be redrawn. Whoever gets appointed will likely run for reelection in 2012, when Twyman's seat expires. The four city council members will likely appoint someone who won't conflict with their respective districts.

Which of the names listed above has the best shot of getting at least three thumbs up from the four council members?
