Petition packets available for Sandwich library board candidates

Petition packets for candidates for the Sandwich Public Library District Board of Trustees in the April 6 consolidated election are available at the library.

The public will be voting for three four-year candidates during this nonpartisan election.

A candidate must reside within the Sandwich Public Library district in order to be eligible to serve as a board trustee.

The board meets at 6:30 p.m. the second Tuesday of each month. Each trustee also is expected to serve on committees, which will require additional meetings as needed.

For the upcoming election, 12 signatures of registered voters within the district are required on the petition. An economic interest statement receipt also must accompany the completed packet.

Contact the DeKalb County clerk with any questions.

The first date for filing petition packets is Dec. 14, and the last date is Dec. 21.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, submitting petition packets will need to be arranged with the library director according to the safety guidelines in place at the time of submission.

Contact Director Barbara Posinger at 815-786-8308, ext. 212, or posingerb@sandwichpld.org about packet
submission.
