The Sandwich Park District would like to announce that petitions are available for Sandwich residents on September 20, 2022 for those who are interested in running for election to the Board of Commissioners in April, 2023. The park district is seeking candidates for positions on the ballot for its seven-member Board.
Sandwich Park District Board Members, called Commissioners, are elected in the Spring elections alternately every two years. These are unpaid volunteer positions. The purpose of the Park Board is to develop official policies of the Park District and to oversee all activities carried out by its Executive Director and other staff. One stipulation on Board membership is that any candidate must be a registered voter living within the Sandwich Park District limits for at least one year.
Any community member who might be interested in running to fill an open spot is encouraged to contact Bill Novicki, Executive Director at 815-786-8044 ext. 226 firstname.lastname@example.org or any current Board member listed on our website at sandwichparkdistrict.org
