Voter Guide: April 4, 2023 – Lansing Library Board elections

Background: The Lansing Journal made efforts to contact all candidates in the April 4 Municipal Election to gather information to share with Lansing voters. Using a “candidate info form,” we asked the same questions of each local office seeker. Answers were prepared and submitted by the candidates. We will be sharing the info race by race in a series of “Voter Guide” posts.

LANSING, Ill. (March 14, 2023) – The Lansing Public Library is a community-centered entity that seeks to meet the various needs of Lansing’s residents.

The Library Board oversees the Library Director, who consults with the Board about programming and finances. The current Library Director is Lisa Korajczyk, who took the reins in 2021. The Library Board is responsible for reviewing and approving the Library’s budget each year and approving all expenditures.

The board comprises seven members, and trustees serve a six-year term. Three trustee seats are available in this year’s election.

Mozella Brown is a current board member and is running for re-election. Steve Carr and Yvette Farmer are also running this year. None of these three candidates replied to The Lansing Journal’s requests for information about their qualifications and goals for the Lansing Library.

    • Good question! At the very local level that these elections represent, candidates might not feel the need to spend a lot of time completing the information form we prepared, particularly if those seats are not being contested. Our goal was to “introduce” the candidates to the community, to help give readers a sense of what the positions are and what kind of people fill them. The more people know about the various roles in our community, the more interested they might be in actually running for an elected office one day.
