D58 board president: Still 'debating' whether to run
On the final day for candidates to file, three incumbents have yet to submit the paperwork to run for re-election.
With less than a day left to file, the president of the Downers Grove School District 58 school board said he has not made up his mind whether he will run for office again next year.
In a brief phone interview Wednesday afternoon, Stephen Funk said he is still weighing whether to defend the seat he won in 2009.
"I haven't decided yet," Funk said. "I'm still debating."
In April, four seats are up for election on both the District 58 and the Downers Grove Community High School District 99 school boards. The deadline to file for both races is 5 p.m. Wednesday.
So far, three of the four District 58 incumbents have filed for election; John D. Cooper Jr., Sallie Ann Lupescu and Roberta Diehl filed on the first day, Dec. 17. They will be joined on the ballot by challenger James Paul.
On the District 99 board, only two candidates — Bill White and Deb Boyle — have filed. Incumbents Julia Beckman and Terry Pavesich have not announced their plans to run, and no newcomers have joined that race.
The filing window opens at 1 p.m. at both district offices. Check back for updates.
