NORTH AURORA – North Aurora Village President Dale Berman has filed to run for another term in the April election, and three Village Board hopefuls also filed to run.
Berman on Monday filed a candidate petition to run in the election. Incumbent village trustees Mark Gaffino and Chris Faber and incumbent village Clerk Lori Murray filed for re-election.
Also filing for village trustee was newcomer Allen Cavender, of the 300 block of Banbury Road. Gaffino has been a trustee since 2005, and Faber has been on the Village Board since May 2009.
There are three seats open on the Village Board. Village Trustee Vince Mancini’s term also is up.
Berman first served as North Aurora village president from 1985 to 1989 and returned to the office in 2009, when he was elected to succeed Village President John Hansen, who did not run for re-election.
Berman was a North Aurora village trustee for 14 years. In announcing in September that he would run for re-election, Berman pointed to several village projects that were completed during his term, including the $1.6 million renovation of North Aurora Village Hall and the construction of a police station.
North Aurora candidates have until 5 p.m. Monday to file candidate petitions. There will be a February primary election if required.
