DeKalb County treasurer resigns

SYCAMORE – DeKalb County Treasurer Mark Todd is resigning to pursue a job in Hawaii, county board Chairman Jeff Metzger said in a news release Friday.

Todd's resignation will be effective Feb. 8, the news release states.

Todd was appointed to the seat in February 2011 after then-treasurer Christine Johnson left to fill the vacant Illinois Senate District 35 seat after Brad Burzynski retired. He won the November election for a two-year term.

Metzger has 60 days from Feb. 8 to appoint a new treasurer, according to the news release. State statutes require the appointment go to someone of the political party to which the incumbent belonged when he or she was elected. In this case, that would be a Republican.

"While the statutes do not provide specific qualifications for the office of county treasurer, I plan to develop criteria to evaluate candidates interested in this post so that the county is assured of getting a highly qualified individual to manage the treasurer's office," Metzger said in the news release.
