I want to thank the many community members who supported my candidacy for District 200 in last Tuesday's election.
Although I was unsuccessful, the other caucus-endorsed candidates who were elected bring a wealth of proven experience, active leadership and a true commitment to Oak Park and River Forest High School.
During my four and one-half years on the Board of Education I have given my best efforts to support initiatives that provide opportunities for academic success to our students, foster responsible fiscal stewardship when spending our property tax dollars, expand our communications with Districts 97 and 90, and enhance intergovernmental cooperation for the larger benefit of our communities.
I know that these actions have helped sustain OPRFHS as a premier educational institution.
Many complex issues remain for the new Board to consider and I will continue to be a strong supporter for "Those Things That are Best" at OPRFHS.
