Three Candidates for APL Trustee Seat

Albany Public Library will be asking City of Albany voters to vote to fill one vacant seat on the Library Board of Trustees in the May 20th Albany City School District Election.

There will be three candidates on the ballot.
Charles Carr is self-employed with a background in facilities management. A lifelong resident of Albany, he and his two sons regularly use the Delaware Branch.
Jose Lopez is an assistant teacher for people with disabilities and a long time Albany resident.
Lois Parsons, the incumbent, is also a long time resident of Albany. She has worked in the nursing field and has been involved in fundraising for neighborhood associations.

The Trustee vacancy was created by the passing of longtime Board member John Bach and has been temporarily filled by the Library Board’s appointment of Lois Parsons until the next election. The candidate receiving the largest number of votes in the election will serve the balance of Mr. Bach’s term, which expires on June 30, 2009.

Polling sites for the library vote are different from the locations used for citywide elections; see the ones listed here. If you have any questions regarding the polling sites, contact the Clerk of the City School District of Albany at 475-6010.

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