The Geneva City Council approved Mayor Kevin Burns’ appointment of Brad Kosirog to fill the vacant 2nd Ward alderman seat during a Sept. 8 meeting.
Alderman Kosirog has served on the City’s Planning and Zoning Commission since 2016. An active member of the Geneva community, he has been on the board of directors for the Geneva Academic Foundation and Geneva Community Chest. He also has worked as a Kane County election judge for the past four years.
Kosirog was one of 10 residents that applied for the City Council vacancy.
“I am grateful to Aldermen Rich Marks, Craig Maladra and Tara Burghart who led the interview process and advanced Mr. Kosirog’s nomination, which received the City Council’s unanimous vote of support,” Mayor Burns said.
Alderman Kosirog and his family moved to Geneva in 2014. He owns a fastener distributorship in Warrenville that has been in operation for 31 years.
“It’s an honor to have the confidence of the Mayor and my colleagues on the City Council to fill this position,” Alderman Kosirog said. “I look forward to getting to know the residents of the 2nd Ward, including their passions and interests.”
Alderman Kosirog’s appointment carries through next year, and he will have the option to run for another term. He is replacing former 2nd Ward Alderman Mike Clements, who announced his resignation July 13 after serving two years on the City Council.
