As filing ends, candidates start preparing for April election

More than 50 local residents are volunteering to spend long hours away from home making critical decisions about Homewood-Flossmoor area schools, parks and municipal government.

They are the declared candidates in the April 4, 2017 Consolidated Election. In the weeks to come they will do their best to persuade their neighbors why they should be elected to the legislative units of local governments that educate children, keep the streets clear of snow and supervise recreational programs on public land.

Filing ended Dec. 19 for the candidates as they finished submitting petitions and other paperwork . . .
