District 10 to hold elections for board
Ten positions on the Como Community Council Board are up for election at District 10’s Annual Meeting on Tues., Apr. 18. Full two-year terms are available for these positions:
• Chair
• Secretary
• One representative from each of the four geographic Sub-Districts
• Three At-Large representatives

Also, a special election will be held for a vacant At-Large position.

In addition to voting for board vacancies, community members will also vote on an amendment to District 10’s Articles of Incorporation. This technical amendment, which was approved by the District 10 board in March, legally incorporates Sub-District 4 into the boundaries of the district.

Biographies of candidates who filed in time to be on the ballot will be available on District 10’s website: www.district10comopark.org.

Board members elected in the nine regular elections will serve from Apr. 25, 2017, until Apr. 23, 2019. The board member elected to fill the At-Large vacancy will take office immediately and serve until April 2018. Nominations will be taken from the floor for write-in candidacies.

How to vote. Any resident of District 10 who is age 18 or older is eligible to vote. So are authorized representatives from a business or nonprofit organization located in District 10. Community residents will vote in person, using secret ballots, at the Annual Meeting. All members will be able to vote for Chair, Secretary, and the At-Large positions. Only members who live in a particular Sub-District will be able to vote for those positions. The Annual Meeting begins at 7pm at the Como Park Streetcar Station, which is at the northeast corner of Lexington and Horton.
