No Candidate on April 2, So Fox River Library Seeks Trustee

Super-low voter turnout in the April 2 Consolidated election wasn’t the only sign of complacency in local elected government — there were also a number of open seats that drew no candidates at all.

And that means local units of government will be looking for people to fill vacant seats.

One example is a vacancy on the Fox River Valley Public Library District’s Board of Trustees, effective May 21 and due to a lack of candidates to fill all open positions on the April 2 consolidated election ballot.

The vacancy will be filled by way of nomination of a candidate by the board president, subject to the approval of the full board at their June 18 meeting. The appointee will serve for two years until the next consolidated election.

Trustees serve without monetary compensation and must meet statutory eligibility requirements.

For information about the requirements, duties and responsibilities of a library trustee contact Library Director, Roxane Bennett, at 224-699-5829. To apply, please submit letter of interest and resume via email to:

The district serves 70,000 residents of Carpentersville, East Dundee, West Dundee, Sleepy Hollow, Gilberts, and parts of Algonquin.
