MADISON, Wis. - The brother of late comedian Chris Farley wants to be a Madison alderman.
The Capital Times reports Tom Farley is looking to fill a seat recently vacated by Sue Ellingson to deal with a family emergency.
The Madison City Council will appoint a placeholder until a new alder is elected in 2015. A dozen have applied for the position.
Farley has been active in civic affairs as head of the now-defunct Chris Farley Foundation and through various city boards and commissions. He also ran unsuccessfully for Madison School Board in 2010 and a city council seat in 2011.
While he identified himself as a Republican previously, he says he now leans Democratic.
A committee will recommend an applicant to the full body, which will then vote on it.
