About the Election
There are six people vying for three open positions on the Palatine Township District 15 Elementary School Board. Election Day is Tuesday, April 5, 2011.
In December Manjula Sriram, Scott Herr and Gerard Iannuzzelli filed their nominating petitions to appear on the ballot, and recently formed Vote 1-3-5 for District 15 (they are on lines 1, 3 and 5 on the ballot). To learn more, see Vote 1-3-5 for District 15 established.
Three incumbent candidates are Gerald Chapman, James Ekeberg and David Seiffert, who are running for re-election.
Incumbent David Seiffert will remain on the Board whether he wins or loses on April 5th. He was recently appointed by the Board to fill out the remaining two years for Board member Mark Bloom who resigned in January. If Seiffert loses the April 5th election, he will continue filling out the remaining two years of Mark Bloom’s term. If he wins the April 5th election, he will resign his current 2-year appointment and the Board will again appoint someone to this open Board position.
