The Skokie Park District board of commissioners elected its new officers last night at the May 2023 annual meeting.
The board elected Mike Reid (pictured second from right) the president of the board, with Minal Desai (pictured at right) elected vice-president. Reid has served on the board since 2005; Desai since 2019. Both votes were unanimous.
Immediately preceding the annual meeting, at the May 2023 monthly meeting, Reid and Ezra Jaffe (pictured second from left) were sworn in as newly elected board members.
The five-member board is elected by the residents of Skokie and is responsible for setting policies and procedures that benefit the park district and the community. The board adopts a budget, levies property taxes and is responsible for hiring and evaluating the executive director. All commissioners are elected at large and serve without compensation.
