New Trustees, New Clerk Sworn In at Village Hall

Stan Bond and Matt Brolley take their places on the Montgomery Village Board, and Pete Heinz begins his seventh term, while Carla Cooper begins her term as clerk.

Last month, the Montgomery Village Board said goodbye to two longtime trustees, Jeanne Felten and Robert Watermann. On Monday, the board welcomed their successors, as new trustees Stan Bond and Matt Brolley took their oaths and their seats.

Bond, president of his own advertising firm, won his place on the board April 5 with 616 votes, the most of the seven candidates. Brolley, an engineer with Koziol Engineering Services in Lisle, won his with 479 votes.

While both Bond and Brolley are kicking off their first terms, the winner of the third open seat in last month's election, Pete Heinz, began his seventh on Monday night. He won his re-election with 489 votes.

Kane County Judge Robert Pilmer swore in all three trustees, as well as new Village Clerk Carla Cooper. Cooper was selected by Village President Marilyn Michelini to succeed longtime clerk Barbara Argo, who resigned earlier this year.

The new trustees’ first vote, and Cooper’s first roll call, was for a resolution proclaiming May as Motorcycle Awareness Month. It passed unanimously.

“I’m looking forward to working with all of you, and I’m sure we will have a good working relationship,” Michelini said.

I would like to send out a quick thanks to everyone who attended the meeting/ceremony last night. I am humbled by this opportunity to serve the residents of this great village.
