Foster says her farewells

According to the Commercial News, Before her 24-year tenure at Vermilion County Clerk, Lynn Foster had managed a small business. Looking back now, she said the business and some aspects of her clerk’s office weren’t all that different.
“It’s just selling a different product,” said Foster, sitting in her office. “We’re selling service here instead of a product. And that’s kind of been our mantra here. We’ve got service, it’s our only product and that’s what were selling And we’re taking care of the people that pay our salaries.”
Business experience, however, didn’t prepare Foster for everything she would encounter as a new county clerk. The office handles a number of responsibilities from the more public elections and voter registration to lesser-known duties ranging from marriage licenses and vital records to computing tax rates.

County board to see new faces

According to the Commercial News, It’s a major changing of the guard for the Vermilion County Board as several members with a combined seven decades of experience are leaving.
A total of six members will be gone after the board’s reorganization meeting on Monday, beginning with current chairman Gary Weinard.
Weinard, who was first elected in 1994, is the longest-running board member who will not return for another term. Chris Leigh of District 1, 14 years on the board; Richard Knight of District 3, 16 years; Terry Stal of District 4, 14 years; and John Alexander of District 6, 13 years, also are ending their terms.
Overall, the group touts a total 77 years of experience on the county board.
Sixteen years on the board weren’t in the plans for Knight, who remembers running for the county board amid talk and hearings about zoning — an issue he remains staunchly against. Being on the board, however, he learned members sometimes have to bend on some issues.
“You learn that there 26 other opinions on the board,” he said. “You learn to deal with that and accept it. You’re not always going to get your way.”
In the end, Knight admits he’s of two minds about leaving the board.
“I’m glad it’s over, yet I wish it wasn’t,” he said. “I enjoyed it. I met a lot of interesting people in 16 years.”
