A trustee with the Mundelein-based Fremont Public Library District has resigned and another is preparing to quit the board, leaving officials with the task of finding two replacements.

Board member Sarah Armstrong resigned in April because she moved out of the district, officials said. Additionally, Ken Erickson has announced that he intends to step down because his professional demands conflict with the board meeting schedule, Director Scott Davis said.

 

Erickson will remain on the board until a successor is found, Davis said.

Armstrong was appointed to the board in 2013 and was elected to a four-year term in 2015.

Erickson has been on the board since 2007. Like Armstrong, he was re-elected to a four-year term in 2015.

Both Armstrong and Erickson had served as vice president of the board at different times. Erickson also spent time as the board's secretary.

A special nominating committee will review applications and recommend candidates to the library board for approval.

The eventual nominees will serve until the spring 2019 election.

Interested candidates should send cover letters and resumes to Davis at: The Fremont Public Library District, 1170 N. Midlothian Road, Mundelein, IL, 60060.
