The Prince George's County Council is meeting today to decide on dates for the general election and primary to replace former Council member Leslie Johnson.

The Prince George's County Council is planning a special election to fill the seat vacated by the resignation of Leslie Johnson.

Four of the five candidates who challenged Johnson back in September appear interested in making another run at that council seat, which opened when Johnson's resignation took effect Sunday.

The four are Arthur Turner, Venus Bethea, Mark Polk, and Derrick Davis, who lost to Johnson last fall by only 1,400 votes. Davis announced his candidacy at a fundraiser last week, which was attended by the Montgomery County State's Attorney and the County Executive.

The council has scheduled a special session this morning to decide on dates for the general election and primary.
