The Lakewood Village Board will meet Tuesday to vote on the appointment of a new trustee to fill the seat of J. Carl Davis – the board’s newly appointed interim president.
Brian Augustine, 48, has been tapped as the candidate to take the vacant trustee seat. A Lakewood resident since 2000, Augustine is a residential mortgage lender with New American Funding.
The Northwest Herald reached out to Augustine on Saturday to ask what governing philosophies he would bring to the Village Board.
“Civility – that’s it,” Augustine said. “I want a process where it’s neighborly, fair and reasonable. Really, that’s what I’m looking for.
I think the residents expect that.”
The board will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the RedTail Golf Club, 7900 Redtail Drive in Lakewood.
At a special meeting in August, the board unanimously voted to have Davis appointed president after the abrupt exit of Paul Serwatka.
Serwatka resigned from his position Tuesday. Davis, who has served on the board for more than two decades, will serve the rest of Serwatka’s term until a new president is elected in the spring.
Serwatka, 50, resigned after months of speculation. He recently moved his family to northern Alabama.
