As Head of School and President of the Board at Urban Prairie Waldorf School, we are pleased to endorse Ravi Parakkat for Oak Park Village Trustee. 

A not-for-profit Waldorf school, Urban Prairie is a community that not only values inclusivity but also works continually to explore and deepen our commitment to its practice at every level, from the board of trustees to the day-to-day of the classroom. As a member of our board, Mr. Parakkat shares this value. He brings a diversity of experience and perspective to our board conversations. 

In his contributions toward strategic planning at the school, Mr. Parakkat has brought just the right mix of visionary and pragmatic thinking. He is able to frame a problem and see the opportunities, which has been critical for our board as we addressed the pandemic. Similarly, he has brought to the board a deep awareness and commitment to practical approaches to sustainability during this time of climate crisis.

Vision, inclusivity, sustainability, solution orientation — Mr. Parakkat brings a richness of experience to the Oak Park Village Board as a Trustee. We encourage you to vote for him on April 6.
