Barbara Hickey is an asset to the River Forest District 90 School Board, and I encourage D90 constituents to vote for her. I have worked alongside Barb for over 10 years, first as a fellow board member for PING! and currently as co-chair of the Positive Youth Development coalition (+PYD) that addresses underage drinking and substance abuse in our community. 

Her affiliation with these two organizations, as well as her tenure on the D90 school board, and PING! before that demonstrates her commitment to ensure that all of our youth have the opportunities to succeed. Barb is strategic, thoughtful and articulate. She listens to and respects colleagues and stakeholders alike. She is a hard worker and knows how to collaborate to get things done. 

The D90 school board has accomplished much during her first term and by re-electing Barb Hickey to another term, the positive momentum can be continued. Remember to vote on April 2.
