LAKE BLUFF — The VOTE (Volunteers Organized To Elect) Lake Bluff Steering Committee seeks residents interested in running in the April 2013 election to serve on the Lake Bluff village or library board.
This is an important election cycle for Lake Bluff due to the number of positions that have to be filled on both boards, committee co-chairman Jim Gillen said in a press release.
The library board will have six of its seven trustee positions on the ballot in the April 2013 election due to four trustee terms expiring and the resignations of two trustees who moved from the community. The village board will have four positions on the ballot in the April 2013 election, including three trustee positions and the village president.
The VOTE Steering Committee has scheduled meetings for 7 p.m. Nov. 14 and 15 at Lake Bluff Elementary School, 350 W. Washington Ave., Lake Bluff. Individuals interested in seeking the VOTE Committee’s endorsement for a board position will be introduced to the committee and participate in a question-and-answer session. The VOTE Committee will endorse a slate of candidates that will be presented for official endorsement at a town meeting tentatively scheduled for early December.
The VOTE Steering Committee invites all Lake Bluff residents who are qualified to vote in the April 2013 election to attend both committee meetings and the town meeting.
Interested residents are encouraged to visit www.votelakebluff.org for information. Or call Co-Chairman Ed Duffy at (847) 482-0836 or Gillen at (847) 234-6736.
