The Village of Summit is accepting nominations to fill the Trustee vacancy on the Village Board. After the passing of our Mayor Joseph W. Strzelczyk, I was appointed as the Acting President to complete the reminder of his term leaving mine Trustee position vacant on the Village Board. Under state law, vacancies are filled by nomination from the Village President and confirmed by a majority vote of the Village Board of Trustees. I am encouraging residents that a interested in contributing to the Village to submit their letter of intent before I submit a nomination to the Board of Trustees for approval. Being a public official is an important responsibility and a way for residents to contribute to the betterment of their community.
If you are interested in being considered for the position, you should submit a letter detailing your reasons why you would like to serve. Include some of your ideas on how to strengthen the Village of Summit, and make sure to also include a resume. All submissions should be addressed to me and delivered to Village Hall at 7321 West 59th Street during regular business hours.
The last day nominations will be accepted will be Thursday, August 13, 2015. I hope to submit my recommendation to the board at our next Board meeting on Monday, August 17th.
Acting Village President, Village of Summit
