The Peoria County Election Commission met on Tuesday, June 11, 2019, for their regular monthly meeting. All were present except for Commissioner Sandra Burke who arrived after the business part of the meeting was completed. Also present was Chief Circuit Judge Paul Gilfillan.
Board Chairman David Collins resigned that day because of a change in employment.
Judge Gilfillan swore in new Commissioner James Manning at the end of the meeting.
Matt Bartolo will serve as Board Chairman until the end of the fiscal year in August.
There was very little business to attend to since there are no pending elections. Director Tom Bride went over expenses for the month and reported that, in spite of his two trips to the State Legislature, no bills were passed this spring that would affect the Commission's work. The office staff is working on new voter cards, which need to go out this summer.
The Commission passed a resolution honoring the work of David Collins as Chairman. The staff gave him a framed copy of a ballot from his own precinct during a presidential election that had his signature as chairman of the Commission.
The Commission then went into executive session so that the State's Attorney could discuss litigation.
