The Maywood United Party has selected a replacement for first-term incumbent Trustee Mike Rogers, who had successfully made the ballot to run for a second term on the ticket until withdrawing his candidacy earlier this week.
Emanuel Wilder has filed his candidacy with the village clerk to replace Rogers. Wilder joins Tony Sanchez and Audrey Jaycox as the ticket’s trustee candidates.
Trustee Henderson Yarbrough, who served two terms as mayor from 2005 until 2013, is running as the ticket’s mayoral candidate. Former District 209 school board member Readith Ester is running as the ticket’s candidate for clerk.
According to his LinkedIn account, Wilder has served as chairman of the Maywood Board of Fire and Police Commission for over 11 years. Ester also serves on the commission.
For over 26 years, Wilder was a public service administrator with the Illinois Department of Public Health and a GED instructor for the City Colleges of Chicago for over three decades. VFP
