VERNON HILLS – Voters will see a lot of history on their 2013 municipal election ballots.
As the Dec. 26 deadline passed, four incumbents and one newcomer filed for village office.
Village President Roger Byrne is running unopposed for his sixth term, after serving as a trustee from 1987 until 1993.
Trustees James Schultz, Thom Koch Jr. and Barbara Williams also are seeking re-election, while resident Ted Sindermann vies for one of the three trustee seats.
Williams was a trustee from 1981 until 1989 when she became village president for a term. After taking time off, Williams returned to politics in 2001 and has been a trustee since.
Koch joined the board in 1993, when Byrne became village president and has retained his seat each election.
Schultz joined the board in 2005.
