Applications being accepted for Will County Board District 1 member
Candidate to represent Peotone, Monee, Crete and other Eastern Will County communities
Due to the recent resignation of Laurie Summers (D-Crete) as member of the Will County Board District 1, County Executive Larry Walsh is now accepting applications to fill this seat.
“It is important that we fill this seat as quickly as possible to maintain a fair and well represented county board,” Walsh said. “This is a great opportunity for someone to get involved with county government.”
Summers was first elected to the board in 2016. She also served on the county board’s executive, legislative and policy, and the public health and safety committees. Most recently, Summers was named president of the Forest Preserve of Will County Board of Commissioners.
According to the rules of the Will County Board, since Summers is a Democrat, a member of the Democrat party must be appointed as her replacement. Interested parties should send a letter of interest and a resume to Bill Thoman, chairman of the Will County Democrat Central Committee, by November 1st, 2019 via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or mail: P.O. Box 4242, Joliet, IL 60434.
