The Board of Trustees of the C.H. Booth Library will welcome new board members Julie Starkweather, Carolyn Signorelli, Walter Motyka, and Raymond Irrera, at the regularly scheduled April meeting, said nominating committee board member Colleen Honan.
“The nominating committee met several times to go through the resumes we received, interviewed several, and came up with these top four candidates,” said Ms Honan. “All of them have either been very involved in the town in some capacity already, or want to be more involved. We are pleased to have them join us. They have great qualities to bring to the board and they have the commitment that is needed,” she said.
Board members must be willing to serve on subcommittees that spread the amount of work to achieve board goals, said Ms Honan. The newest board members, she said, are looking forward to doing so.
A fifth open seat on the board will be filled by a Democrat, appointed by the Town of Newtown. That appointment is expected to be named soon.
Experienced board members have agreed to mentor the newest board members, to ease the transition.
Additionally, said Ms Honan, two more seats will open on the Board of Trustees as of July 1.
“We will continue to consider new nominees,” she said.
Anyone interested in serving on the Board of Trustees of the C.H. Booth Library is invited to send a resume to the C.H. Booth Library — ATTN Board of Trustees Nominating Committee, 25 Main Street, Newtown CT 06470.
