Warminster supervisors will publicly screen almost a dozen candidates over the next two weeks to find a permanent township solicitor, officials announced Tuesday night. 

The search for new legal representation started in early December after former solicitor Michael Savona resigned from Doylestown law firm Eastburn & Gray. His resignation followed the release of a supplemental indictment against Lower Southampton officials accused of municipal corruption. 

Six attorneys will meet with the supervisors Thursday at the township’s administration building, starting at 5 p.m. Each interview is expected to last about 30 minutes, with the public invited to view the proceedings. The interviews will not be televised. The candidates coming in Thursday night include: 

 • Michael P. Clarke of Rudolph Clarke LLC, with offices in Bensalem 

 • Christen Pionzio of Hamburg, Rubin, Mullin, Maxwell & Lupin P.C., in Lansdale 

 • Matt McHugh of Obermayer, Rebmann, Maxwell & Hippel LLP in Philadelphia (former Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick is a partner in the firm) 

 • Frank Bartle of Dischell Bartle Dooley PC in Lansdale 

 • Richard Sokari of High Swartz, with offices in Doylestown Borough (former Warminster supervisor and current Bucks County Treasurer Tom Panzer is a partner) 

 • Mark Freed of Curtin & Heefner, with offices in Yardley, Doylestown Township and New Hope 

The remaining five interviews will be held Jan. 11 starting at 6:30 p.m. Those candidates include: 

 • Sean Kilkenny of Law Offices of Sean Kilkenny in Norristown 

 • David Onorato and Kathleen Thomas of Hladik, Onorato and Federman LLP in North Wales 

 • Randall C. Flager of Flager and Associates PC in Lower Southampton 

 • David Truelove of Hill Wallack, LP, with offices in Yardley 

 • Joseph Pizzo of Joseph Pizzo and Associates in Bensalem
