Sibert was actually the third person on the list of six to be nominated for Place 1. Councilman Wayne Howard nominated Bob Arrant but he his motion did not receive a second. Councilman Henry Hooks followed Howard with a nomination for Gary McGraw. However, his nomination failed since it was not seconded either.
