Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar to Run Unopposed for Eighth Term

No one had filed to run against Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar in the April 2013 election.

Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar will run unopposed this April for his eighth term in office, according to the Bolingbrook Reporter

No one filed to run against the mayor by the Dec. 26 deadline. 

Someone could still file to run as a write-in candidate for the election. The deadline to do so is Feb. 7, according to the Reporter

Village Clerk Carol Penning will also run unopposed for re-election. It will be Penning's seventh term in the position.

Three trustee positions will be on the April ballot. Those seats are currently held by Joseph Morelli, Michael Lawler and Sandra Swinkunas. Morelli and Lawler will run for re-election and will be joined by newcomers Maria Zarate and Tim Dombrow. Swinkunas is not seeking re-election, according to the Reporter

Morelli, Lawler and Zarate are on the First Party slate. Dombrow is noted as an independent candidate. 

Editor's note: This story previously left out Tim Dombrow, who is running for trustee. Patch regrets the error.
