Surprise City Council voted last week to appoint Nancy Hayden to fill the vacant District 2 seat for the rest of the year.

But some residents and board members questioned the panel’s motives and methods in selecting Ms. Hayden to take over the seat left vacant when her husband, Councilman Jim Hayden, died in December.

After some wrangling, the council chose Ms. Hayden at their Feb. 6 regular meeting at City Hall, 16000 N. Civic Center Plaza, selecting her from among three nominees and six total applicants.
