During a Sept. 12 regular meeting, Bellwood Public Library board members voted 5 to 1 to replace the Homewood-based Stuttley Group with Schaumburg-based attorney Dalal Jarad as their legal representation. Board member Mary Clements voted against the measure.
At that meeting, the library board also experienced a change in leadership and gained two newly appointed members Rev. Michael Horton, a former library board member, and Gloria Ward.
Dorothy Clark-Smith, Deborah Giles and Connie Riales — all of whom ran on the Bellwood Dream Team Party slate in April — were elected the library board’s president, vice president and secretary, respectively.
In June 2015, Jarad was removed by the Maywood Park District board and replaced with a Maywood-based personal injury attorney, Steven A. Hinton, in a move that some board members claimed at the time was not transparent.
