Kelley is pursuing his higher education goals in the Chicago area. Kelley won election in 2001, and was known as an independent voice on the board. His mother, Kathy, joined him on the board last November after she won election in the spring of 2003.
Biondo was known as a financial watchdog during his tenure with the Rockford School Boardan attribute that may serve him well considering RVCs five consecutive years of financial deficits.
Biondo is a longtime employee of Hamilton Sunstrand. He is expected to be sworn in Aug. 31. His appointment expires next April.
