KALISPELL, Mont. -

In the Flathead, County Republicans are working to fill the Commissioner?s seat left open when Jim Dupont died. The Flathead Republican Central Committee interviewed six applicants on Monday night.

On Tuesday night, members will narrow down that list to just three to submit to commissioners. Selection team members say the candidates come from different backgrounds, including people who have served on city councils and County boards.

Commissioners will have the option to request three more choices, and then would have to make a pick from the six candidates.
