Seven Candidates Will Appear on the 2023 Ballot for JJC Board of Trustees

This spring, residents of Joliet Junior College (JJC) District 525 will choose from seven candidates to fill two seats on the JJC Board of Trustees.

The consolidated election takes place on Tuesday, April 4. The following candidates are seeking six-year terms on the board, and will appear in the following order on the ballot:

•    Kevin Kollins Hedemark, Romeoville

•    Krystal Garcia Centeno, Romeoville

JJC is governed by a seven-member Board of Trustees, all of whom are elected from within the seven-county college district for at-large, staggered, six-year terms. A student representative, appointed annually, is a non-voting member of the board. Residents are asked to select no more than two candidates when marking their ballot. 

Current Board of Trustees members include Chair Dan O’Connell, Vice Chair Maureen Broderick, Secretary Nancy Garcia Guillen, James Budzinski, Michelle Lee and John (Jake) Mahalik and Student Trustee Josh Stamborski. Morales is seeking re-election and was first elected to the board in 2017. O’Connell, also elected in 2017, is not seeking another term.

More information about the JJC Board of Trustees, including scheduled meeting dates and agendas, is available on the Board of Trustees web page.
