2011 Carbondale Park District Elections
The media focus has been on the elections for Carbondale mayor and city council, but three seats on the Carbondale Park District board will also be up for election on April 5, 2011.
Election packets are available at Hickory Lodge (1115 W. Sycamore). You must turn in a petition with fifty valid signatures to get on the ballot. Packets must be filed between December 13 and December 20.
The seats currently held by James Fralish, Angela Kazakevicius, Lawrence Erickson are up for election. Board positions are unpaid.
The person I spoke to told me “a couple” of people have picked up packets but she didn’t say how many. She also said that not all of the incumbents have picked up packets but she wouldn’t say which ones.
Though the park district is occasionally a source of controversy, at other times it operates in obscurity. Last month the district held a public hearing on debt consolidation and no one came. Two of five board members did not attend the hearing.
