At Monday's village board meeting, three trustees were sworn back into office after winning April 5 elections: Sheldon Marcus, John Thill and Maria Toth. All three offered remarks before celebrating after the formal meeting with cake. They will serve four-year terms. You can scan the photos and read a reprint of Toth's remarks below.
I am humbled to have been elected by the residents of Morton Grove and to once again serve as a member of this board.
I was welcomed very warmly upon my appointment to this post two years ago. It has been my privilege to work with the mayor, my fellow board members, and village staff -- and I look forward to sharing my ideas and offering up solutions to whatever problems face us in the future.
I promise to all of you that I will continue to strive to do my best as I represent the residents of our community.
Thank you to Judge Kull for taking time out of your busy schedule and swearing me in tonight.
On a personal note, I would like to thank my friends for attending and would like to acknowledge my family members who are in attendance – my parents; my husband, Rich; and our daughters – I am always touched by your unending love and support!
Finally, I urge residents to get involved in our community. I have met so many of you and know you have much to share!
Consider sharing your talents and enthusiasm by volunteering your time on a village commission -- you can truly make a difference in our town.
If that’s not your cup of tea, please remember that your suggestions are always welcome. You can reach out to me or any board member to express your thoughts or share your ideas.
Thank you again. I look forward to the next four years!
