ST. CHARLES – Fifth Ward alderwoman Maureen Lewis on Thursday formally announced she will seek re-election next spring.

“I like being able to help the residents of St. Charles,” she said.

The St. Charles native was appointed to the St. Charles City Council in December 2010 after David Richards resigned. Voters selected her in April 2011 to carry out the remainder of Richards’ term.

Lewis thanked the 5th Ward residents for their trust.

“It has been a privilege and an honor to represent you on the St. Charles City Council,” she said.

As alderwoman, Lewis said she is proud of the city’s balanced budget, high bond rating from Moody’s Investment Services, flat tax levy and healthy financial reserve. If re-elected, she said she would like to continue working on city codes and ordinances.

To date, only one other person has announced a bid for the 5th Ward seat: Kim Malay, who also ran for the partial term in 2011.

Nomination packets for the consolidated election are available at the reception desk in the St. Charles Municipal Center, 2 E. Main St. Completed nomination packets must be filed between Monday and 5 p.m. Dec. 26.
