Incumbent Janet Heck Doyle was re-elected to a second four-year term on the Evergreen Park and Recreation District board on Tuesday, and Andrew Adamowski won the second available seat.
According to unofficial results, Adamowski led the three-way race for the two board seats with 361 votes, and Doyle garnered 288. Keith Parker finished a distant third with 162 votes.
“I look forward to serving the community on the board for the next four years,” said Adamowski. “I’d like to thank everyone who came out to vote.”
Incumbent Peter Lindquist, who was running unopposed for a two-year term, totaled 366 votes. The Indian Hills resident was appointed to the board in August 2011 to fill a vacancy created when Pat Callahan resigned.
Adamowski, whose initial bid for a board seat was unsuccessful in 2010, will fill the seat that had been occupied by Peter Eggers, who decided not to seek re-election to a fifth term on the board.
Adamowski is a former Eagle Scout and Evergreen native; he has a bachelor's degree in landscape horticulture and is a landscape manager for Shea Properties in Englewood.
Doyle, a former corporate lawyer and a solar-energy company CEO, has been serving as board president. In her campaign, she touted her experience and her desire to see the recently completed master plan implemented.
During her campaign, Doyle emphasized the importance of community input in making decisions about district projects. Adamowski said he would like to see better communication between residents and the EPRD board, and expressed support for development of a community garden at Buchanan Park.
Lindquist, who has been serving the board as treasurer, has a background in finance and banking.
