Wallace received 3,874 votes in last month's election, beating former Trustee Patricia Kelly, who had 814 votes, and Ted Lonis, who had 457 votes, according to the Cook County clerk's office and the DuPage County Election Commission.

Vince Carbonaro, Michael Camerer and Aaron Reinke also took the oath of office, filling seats that were previously held by Kelly, Frank Napolitano and Dennis Nolan.

Out of the six candidates running for trustee, Camerer garnered the most support with 3,829 votes, followed by Reinke, who had 3,473 votes, and Carbonaro, who had 3,317.

They beat Nolan, who was running for a fifth term, along with Angelina Filippo and Michelle Hughes.

Napolitano decided not to run again in Bartlett and instead was elected to a spot on the Elgin Area Unit 46 school board.

In addition to the new trustees and village president, Lorna Giless began her second 4-year term as village clerk Tuesday. She ran unopposed in the April election.

During the village board meeting, Wallace appointed chairmen to the six standing committees.

Camerer will chair the planning and zoning committee; Trustee Greg Martin will chair the building committee; Reinke will chair the finance and golf committee; Carbonaro will chair the license and ordinance committee; Trustee Eric Shipman will chair the police and health committee; and Trustee T.L. Arends will chair the public works committee.
