6 candidates vie for 5 CATA director seats

May 20, 2016
Six candidates, including three incumbents, have been nominated to fill five openings on the board of directors of the Chicago Automobile Trade Association. Each term lasts three years beginning next month.
A summary of the candidates’ qualifications was mailed May 19 to CATA dealer members, and election ballots will be sent May 27 to those dealer members whose association dues are up-to-date.
Completed ballots must be received by 12 p.m. June 10 by the CATA’s auditing firm, Crowe Horwath LLP, which will tally the submissions. Results will be announced at the June 14 golf outing at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club in Lemont.
All three incumbents on the ballot, Tony Guido (Arlington Heights Ford), John Hennessy (Hennessy's River View Ford, Oswego), and Ray Scarpelli Jr. (Ray Chevrolet, Fox Lake) are seeking their third and final terms on the board. A director can serve a maximum of three, three-year terms.
Additional nominees include Anthony Marino (Marino Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge, Chicago), Buick-GMC franchisee Dan Marquardt (Marquardt of Barrington), and Kelly Webb Roberts (Webb Chevrolet, Oak Lawn; Webb Chevrolet of Plainfield; Webb Hyundai, Highland, Ind.; and Webb Hyundai-Mitsubishi, Merrillville, Ind.).
A committee of current and former CATA board officers nominated the candidates. The CATA board totals 15 directors.
