APL Seeking Trustee Candidates

The Albany Public Library Board of Trustees has three seats that are up for election on Tuesday, May 15. This includes seats currently held by board chair Dennis Gaffney, who, I am told, has chosen not to run again, and Mary Ellen O'Connor, who cannot run again because of term limits. Leonard Ricchiuti is the third trustee whose term expires in 2012.

Anyone interested in running for a seat on the board should pick up a candidate packet at the Reference Desk in the Main Library. The packet contains a nominating petition and directions. There are several requirements for candidates, including the collection of 141 signatures on the petition. The number of signatures required is related to the number of votes at the previous year's election.

Completed nominating petitions are due to the City School District of Albany (School Administration Building in Academy Park) by April 16. The school district clerk can be reached at 475-6010.

Each APL trustee seat carries a five-year term that starts on July 1.
Questions about the APL trustee election can be directed to Stephanie Simon at 427-4344.
