Eugene Marks, Northbrook's former Village President, along with former Trustee Julius Kole, Lynn Ritz and Daniel Scott, will run as the Democratic party against the Northbrook Caucus' mostly-incumbent slate in the village's April's elections, the Chicago Tribune reports.
"When (Kole) and I left the last time, the village had been in the best financial shape," Marks told the Tribune. "We were business friendly. Morale was up. Things were running phenomenal."
Marks previously served as a non-caucus president from 2005 to 2009, until caucus-slated, current president Sandy Frum was elected. She is seeking re-election this year.
The Northbrook Caucus is a local political party, formed in 1982, designed to identify, interview and recommend candidates for positions on village boards. The 2013 caucus slate is listed below.
