One Library Trustee Seat Open for Election

Albany Public Library will be asking City of Albany voters to vote to fill one position on the Library Board of Trustees in the May 20th Albany City School District Election. The vacancy occurred due to the death of longtime Trustee John Bach. The Library Board appointed Lois Parsons to serve as Trustee until the next election. The person elected to this seat will serve the unexpired portion of the term (1 year remaining) commencing at the June 10 meeting of the APL Board.

Any Albany resident who was registered to vote in the November 2007 general election is eligible to run for the Board of Trustees. Candidates must collect a minimum of 101 valid signatures and file their petitions with the Clerk of the City School District of Albany by 4:30 pm on Monday, April 21st. The Library also asks that candidates notify Interim Library Director Tim Burke his/her candidacy by providing copies of their nominating petition to him by the above date and time. Nominating Petitions and instructions may be picked up from Tim Burke at the Main Library.

Detailed information on APL’s May 20th election, including candidate information and polling places, will be posted on the library’s website as it becomes available. If you have questions, please call Interim Library Director Tim Burke at 427-4379 or email
