One couple's move out of state is opening up two vacancies on local elected boards.

Normal Township Trustee Sam Quigle announced her resignation Wednesday, saying she would be pursuing a job out of state. Her spouse, Rebecca Rossi, confirmed late Wednesday she would also be stepping down from the Normal Public Library's board of trustees.

"I am honored to have had the opportunity to serve the constituents of Normal Township with you," Quigle said in a statement. "We’ve made great progress over the last year and I wish you continued success. Thank you for your partnership, vision, and commitment to our community.”

Quigle is a personal trainer who owned an exercise gym, Positive Training. She was elected in April 2017.

“Sam has been a valuable member of the township board this past year," Normal Township Supervisor Sarah Grammer said. "Her background in fitness made her uniquely qualified to help shape new policies at the township’s Activity and Recreation Center (ARC). She has a passion for ensuring high-quality services for the senior population and is well-loved by the members of the ARC where she will be greatly missed on the pickleball court.”

Those who are interested in filling Quigle's vacancy should submit a letter of interest to Grammer by April 9. Qualified candidates must have resided in Normal Township for at least one year, be registered voters, and be a Democrat.

Rossi has served on the library board since 2015.
