Wheatland Township trustee Darren Bennefield, elected along with a slate of Republican candidates in 2013, is set to replace Will County Board Member Lee Ann Goodson.

Bennefield will reportedly be appointed to the District 5 seat on Thursday, nearly a month after Goodson left the post to take a job as the new director of community and government relations for Edward-Elmhurst Healthcare.

Wheatland Township Clerk Bill Alstrom said the township will accept resumes to fill the open trustee spot until May 27. To qualify, candidates must be Republicans, registered voters and residents of Wheatland Township for at least a year.

The township board will interview applicants at a meeting in June, Alstrom said.
