Former state Rep. Rosemary Mulligan will be taking on a new role on the Des Plaines Public Library board. The Des Plaines City Council Tuesday night was expected to confirm Mayor Matt Bogusz's appointment of Mulligan to the board.
Mulligan served 20 years in the Illinois House and is expected to relinquish her Maine Township Republican committeeman post next year. Her term on the Des Plaines library board is set to expire June 30, 2014.
Other library board appointees include Kristen Graack, a middle school teacher whose term is set to expire June 30, 2015, and current library trustee Steven Mokry, who is being reappointed to the board for a three-year term expiring June 30, 2016. The appointments follow the recent resignation of library trustee Jennifer Tsalapatanis, and trustee Susan Moylan Krey earlier this summer.
There is still one vacancy remaining on the board.
