Silver Lake Village Board OKs memo regarding clerks and election work

The Silver Lake Village Board has approved an agreement with Salem that should bring some additional election expertise into the village government in time for the historic first voting for offices in the new village of Salem Lakes.

The Village Board last Wednesday unanimously approved a memo of understanding between the village and Salem and their clerks that will allow Salem town Clerk Cindi Dulaney to work as a deputy to Silver Lake Village Clerk Vickie Galich. That will be key for the upcoming primary (if needed) and spring elections for Salem Lakes offices.

Though Salem and Silver Lake are merging to become Salem Lakes, without the action Dulaney was unable to do any work related to the election, explained Galich. Galich said these elections will be more complex and involve changes related to the new municipality such as new wards and Dulaney is experienced running larger, more complex elections.

“She (Dulaney) has the knowledge,” Galich said.

The memo of understanding was approved unanimously. It will expire after the election work is completed.
