Petition packets for the 2013 Naperville Park District Board of Park Commissioners election are ready for pickup by interested Park Board candidates. Packets may be picked up from 8:30AM – 5PM, Monday through Friday at the Park District Administration Building at 320 W. Jackson Ave. at the desk of Jacki Stern, Executive Administrative Assistant/Local Election Official.

Four positions will be up for election on April 9, 2013; newly elected commissioners will serve four-year terms.

Those who wish to run for a seat on the Board must be at least 18 years of age and a Naperville Park District resident for at least one year prior to the election.

Bill Eagan, Gerry Heide, Mike Reilly and Kirsten Young are currently holding the four Board positions that will expire in April 2013.

Potential candidates must present a minimum of 312 signatures—two percent of the 15,574 ballots cast in the last Park District election—to complete the Nonpartisan Petition for Nomination. Signatures may be gathered between September 25, 2012 and the time of filing.

The official filing dates are Monday through Friday, December 17 through 21 and Monday December 24, 2012.

For more information,  call Jacki Stern at (630) 848-3502. Additional information about the Naperville Park District and its Board of Commissioners can be found by visiting www.napervilleparks.org.

EDITOR’S NOTE: One of the many benefits of running for the Naperville Park District Board of Commissioners is demonstrating community spirit by entering the West Suburban Irish St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The 2013 parade is slated for Sat., March 16, in downtown Naperville,  several weeks before the Consolidated Election on April 9.  By the way, Rich Janor was elected to the park board in 2011 where he currently serves as vice president.
