self-governance (and local taxes) within 60044

We in District 65 are blessed with many willing volunteers who serve on elected government boards with diligence but without pay: The Shields Township Board, the Village Board, the Park Board, the High School Board and the District 65 School Board.

District 65 is governed by a Board of Education that consists of seven members, half elected on alternate odd-numbered years in early April. Three of our board members were elected two years ago and may be re-elected two years from now:

Susan Rider-Porter, Mark Barry, Leigh Ann Charlot

The other four seats will soon be vacated.  The Lake Bluff School Caucus has interviewed a number of great candidates for the District 65 School Board and recommends these four:

Chris Letchinger
Richard Hegg

John Marozsan
Julie Gottshall


They also recommend for the High School Board the incumbent:

Todd Burgener


John, Todd, Richard

Chris, Julie

In addition, the three residents of Lake Forest endorsed by the Lake Forest Caucus for the High School Board are John Powers, Steve Reimer and Dave Schreiber.

For what it is worth, I endorse the Caucus recommendations. I am not a member of the Caucus* but I sat through all the interviews and I urge my neighbors to vote the straight Caucus ticket on April 9, 2013.
