Jeff Weissglass' service on the District 200 high school board, as a member and as president, coincides with my 2013-17 term as Oak Park Township Supervisor. As such, we have had several occasions to share information and discuss our mutual interest in youth welfare.

My most recent meeting with Jeff and the superintendent was focused on how to best serve within the high school the students who may also be receiving township services. Our common interest was based on the challenges some students face both within the school day and outside in the community — where township work includes youth in both villages, often including family contact and other assistance.

My experience with Jeff in these conversations has always been of the highest quality, as seen in his ability to listen, probe, discuss, and thoughtfully come to a mutually agreeable position that we can both support, based on sound public policy.

The recent addition of social workers at the high school is an example where the work of the township with students needing special intervention and guidance is now augmented by professionals in the school dedicated to the same goals: doing all we can to promote the success of all youth.

Vote for Jeff Weissglass and support his proven leadership on our high school board.
