Due to the uncontested nature of the District 97 elementary school board election, Wednesday Journal did not publish information about our candidacies. We respect and understand that decision but think it is very important that the community knows its public servants. Therefore, we want to make available information about our biographies, community service experiences, qualifications for the school board and school policy interests. To receive this information, e-mail James Gates at jgates939@comcast.net or Jennifer Reddy at jennifer.reddy@sbcglobal.net.

Thank you to all our supporters. We look forward to serving all the children, families and constituencies of Oak Park and to working collegially and collaboratively with our colleagues on the Dist. 97 school board.

Jennifer Reddy and James Gates
Oak Park
