At the Tuesday, January 19 Village Board meeting, the Board named Trustee Gary Fasules as Acting Village President. Acting Village President Fasules will fill the remainder of former President Diane McGinley’s term, who resigned effective December 31, 2020 due to a move out of state.
Fasules’ fellow board members voted unanimously to elect him to the position until the next Village President is sworn in after the April 6, 2021 Consolidated Election. He will be sworn in as Acting Village President at the next Village Board Meeting, scheduled for Monday, January 25.
Fasules has the most experience in the role of Trustee on the Village Board, having served four years in the 1990’s, in addition to his current term since elected in May 2017. He also previously served as a member of the Village’s Plan Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals. A lifelong resident of Glen Ellyn, Fasules has served on various community committees throughout his life, including District 41, District 87 and the Chamber of Commerce.
“I am honored and grateful for the opportunity to continue to serve Glen Ellyn in this capacity during this transition,” said Fasules. “I look forward to working closely with my fellow Board members to continue to move forward essential Village projects and services over the next several months while assisting our local businesses during these trying times. The Board and I pledge that we will work alongside one another to keep Glen Ellyn moving in a direction that benefits all its residents and businesses during this transition period.”
