Angela Stranges retires from Village Board after 20 years of public service

Bina Conte named as replacement on Village Board

ELMWOOD PARK, Ill. – The Elmwood Park Board of Trustees announced last night that Trustee Angela Stranges will retire from the Village Board this month after twenty years of public service, ten of them as a Trustee. Bina Conte has been named to fill the remainder of Stranges term.

“Angie has truly been a pleasure to work with,” said Village President Angelo “Skip” Saviano. “And although we are sad to see her leave, we are excited for her new endeavors. Her hard work and dedication to the people of Elmwood Park over the last 20 years has made our community a better place to live, work, and play.”

Prior to becoming a trustee, Stranges served the Elmwood Park Unit School District 401 Board as a Member, Vice President, and then as the first female President of the Board. Stranges is a past member of the Plan, Zoning, and Development Commission and has lived in Elmwood Park since 1976.  She has been a Trustee since 2011.

“I have been proud to serve with some of the most dedicated people I have ever worked with in any capacity,” said Stranges. “And while I look forward to all that the future holds, I will certainly miss being a part of this team.”

Bina Conte has been named to fill the remainder of Stranges term as Trustee. Conte has been a resident of Elmwood Park for the past 36 years. She currently serves as the Assistant Assessor in the Leyden Township Assessor’s Office.

“Bina will bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the Village Board,” said Saviano. “I look forward to working with her in service to the people of Elmwood Park.”

Conte served as a both Commissioner and Secretary of the Village of Elmwood Park Plan, Zoning, and Development Commission for many years. She is a graduate of Dominican University and lives in Elmwood Park with her husband, Anthony. They have three children.
“We raised our family in Elmwood Park,” said Conte. “There is great community here and our village leaders always strive for the best for the residents. I’m pleased to be part of the Village Board and I’m excited to get to work.”
