Matt Baron has our vote for the D200 board. We met Matt at a neighbor's house where he generously spent 90 minutes talking with our group. We support his priorities of fiscal responsibility and accountability at the high school, including a prudent-use reduction of the current reserve; implementing an affordable, equitable, and practical pool replacement; and creating a long-range facilities plan. 

His commitment to more opportunities for OPRF High School minorities to participate in honors classes and direction for the high school to utilize community mentors and volunteers are overdue. Matt recognizes the vital role of cooperation among the taxing bodies, including both village and park district governments, in developing a cohesive, cost-effective use of taxpayer money. 

Finally, his willingness to listen to the public rather than treating them as simply people to educate is a real breath of fresh air. Matt has shown effective leadership during his tenure on the library board. We think he has the experience, energy and ideas to effect positive change for D200.
