Meet the Candidates: Dr. Bonita Gilliam

Dr. Bonita B. Gilliam

If elected as a trustee to the Carol Stream Library Board, I will serve with integrity, and I will uphold the best traditions in stewardship of taxpayer dollars. Responsible stewardship, I believe, will insure a vibrant library for current and future residents of Carol Stream.  A strong library system is the backbone of a strong community. I pledge to uphold the mission of the STL organization and serve with the interests of Carol Stream residents in mind.


I have lived in Carol Stream for 30 years.
