Wroblewski to retire as Schaumburg Township supervisor April 24
Exactly halfway through her fifth term, Schaumburg Township Supervisor Mary Wroblewski has announced she will resign April 24, calling it a retirement from 28 years of public service.
"I want to spend more time with my family, gardening and travel," Wroblewski said. "The township is pretty stable right now. We have a new administrator and a lot of qualified people ready to step into my shoes."
The law dictates that Wroblewski's appointed successor be a resident of Schaumburg Township and a member of the same political party -- in this case, Republican.
Though the township board could choose another elected official to replace Wroblewski April 24, statements of interest and resumes are being solicited. Resumes may be sent to Schaumburg Township Clerk Timothy Heneghan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1 Illinois Blvd. in Hoffman Estates.
Schaumburg Township Republican Committeeman Joe Folisi said the Schaumburg Township Republican Organization may make a recommendation to the township. He's also seeking statements of interest and resumes at email@example.com by 5 p.m. Friday, April 19.
Folisi said that if an existing official becomes supervisor for the remaining two years of Wroblewski's term, that person's position would then need to be filled by appointment as well.
The township's attorney has advised officials that if Heneghan gets the job, someone else would have to be appointed clerk the same night to certify the supervisor. Any other newly created vacancy would not have to be filled immediately.
Prior to her 18 years as Schaumburg Township supervisor, Wroblewski spent a decade on the Palatine-Schaumburg High School District 211 board of education.
She believes her background in nursing, finance and management contributed much to both positions, and expressed gratitude Wednesday to the residents who elected her each term.
Wroblewski and her family have a long history of service to the public sector in the Schaumburg area.
Her husband, Vince Wroblewski, retired as Schaumburg's director of engineering in 2004 after 32 years with the village. And their daughter, Julie Wroblewski Bosshart, was elected last week to her third term on the Schaumburg Township District Library's board of trustees.
