Four Wheeling Park District Park Commissioners To Be Seated May 4
The results of the April 6 consolidated election have been certified and three incumbents and one write-in candidate were selected, through the public voting process, as Wheeling Park District Commissioners. As required by state statute, the four newly-elected Wheeling Park District Commissioners will be officially seated at the regularly-scheduled Board meeting on Tuesday, May 4, at the Community Recreation Center.
Incumbents Sue Stein, Brian Lichtenberger and Paul Zangara retain their seats on the Board for another four years. Newcomer Isaac Brubaker was elected to a four-year term as a write-in candidate.
Mr. Brubaker has resided in Wheeling for the past five years. He is a standards trainer for the American Camp Association and worked in recreation administration for School District 125.
Serving without compensation, locally-elected commissioners represent their fellow citizens and interpret their views. They have the primary responsibility of spending tax monies, fees and donations designated for park and recreation services. Board members help set goals, formulate policies and establish services that will meet the present and future needs of the citizens of the District.
"We are grateful to all those who accept the civic responsibility of serving on our Board of Commissioners," said Executive Director Jan Buchs. "By giving freely of their time and talents, we are able to strengthen and further our mission to offer memorable experiences in parks and recreation that enrich our communities."
The Community Recreation Center (CRC) is located at 100 Community Boulevard in Wheeling.
