Trustee Candidates & Election
Trustee Candidates: The Library will have two available seats for the Library Board of Trustees.
- One seat for a full term of 5 years, beginning on July 1, 2023 and expiring on June 30, 2028.*
- One seat for the unexpired term resulting from the resignation of a Board member, from on or about May 17, 2023 through June 30, 2026.
The candidate receiving the most votes will fill the full term; the next most votes will fill the unexpired term.
Attached is the Library 2023 Nominating Petition – anyone interested in running must return the petition to Liisa Elsner at the Horace Greeley Education Center by no later than 4:30 pm on Monday, April 17, 2023, 30 days before the Annual Budget Vote and Election which will be held on May 16, 2023 in the Horace Greeley Gym (7:00 am – 9:00 pm). This year, nominees will need 37 signatures of qualified voters of the District. Liisa encourages nominees to bring their petitions to her a couple of days in advance of the deadline so that she can ensure they have the requisite number of signatures from residents of the District and they don’t get shut out of the process on a technicality.
*Note: The Board is exploring reducing the full term to 3 years.
