Richton Park Recognizes New Village Trustee Joseph Canady

Joseph Canady has been Village Clerk since 2012, sworn in by then Deputy Clerk Angie Zambrano, to fulfill the last year of the late and previous Clerk Mary Pierce's term. The following year Joseph ran for election for the position and won outright.

 As Trustee Canady states, I am honored to have been recently appointed to the position of “ Village Trustee “ by President Reinbold, and the trustee board of Richton Park. I thank the entire Board for having the confidence in me and my proven abilities to continue to carry out the fiduciary responsibilities, for the benefit of our residents in Richton Park.”

During his tenure as Village Clerk, Canady continued his Clerk education by attending classes in Springfield, IL led by the    University of Illinois and Southern Illinois University. These     activities resulted in him earning the recognition of Registered Municipal Clerk (R.M.C.)

President Reinbold is enthused, commenting that “It is a pleasure to have Joseph as an addition to our Village Board, now as Trustee. We have greatly appreciated his service and tenure as Clerk, and look forward to working alongside him in his new role.”

Prior to Canady’s tenure with the Village Board, he served on the Planning & Zoning Commission for three years. Some of the other positions he has had include realtor and leasing    consultant, and Manufacturing & Distribution with Midas International. Joe attended Northwestern Business College for Business Administration and earned "Graduate of the Year" in 1999. He has served as both Vice President AND President of Alpha Beta Gamma's National Honor Society (1995, 1998) and also serving as V.F.W. Post 311's Mens Auxiliary Vice President.

“My educational background, experience and expertise as a manufacturing manager, distribution manager, Illinois Realtor, transportation supervisor, planning and zoning commissioner, and an award winning Illinois municipal clerk uniquely qualifies me to continue to contribute in a position of trust for our community.”
