I'm writing in support of the re-election of my friend Ralph Lee to the District 200 board. I first met Ralph while working with him on a service project in Chicago's Austin neighborhood. I came to know, and came to respect, a man devoted to making a better community.
During his first term on the OPRF board, Ralph was out front on addressing the achievement gap. He was out front in laying the groundwork to move toward solutions. Ralph's background as a science teacher at OPRF allows him to bring a unique perspective to the problem.
Ralph has also shown leadership in sound and sane stewardship of school finances.
Ralph Lee deserves another term on the District 200 board. Please join me in giving Ralph a chance to continue his dedicated service to our community.
