Park board members are elected at large by the voting population within the Braidwood Park District to serve six (6) year terms.  Pursuant to Illinois State Statute, Park Board members do not receive any pay or compensation for their office and all work they perform is strictly on a volunteer basis.  Due to an extremely small operational budget, Braidwood Park Board members are considered "working Commissioners" and handle all functions of the Park District from office work to grounds work.  They work closely with the district's 3 part-time maintenance personnel to assist with grounds keeping and building maintenance.   They are commissioned with overseeing the regular day to day and long range operations of the park district.  All park board members are authorized to enforce the rules and regulations of the Braidwood Park District.

To contact any of the Park District board members listed above via email, simply send an email to and it will be given to the addressed board member.
