Letter: D-86 should continue to 'Build on Excellence'

Published: Friday, April 5, 2013 3:01 p.m. CDT

To the Editor: District 86 voters will once again be heading to the polls on April 9 and I strongly ask for your support for candidates Dennis Brennan, DeeDee Gorgol, Kay Gallo and Roseanne Rosenthal. Each brings an individual expertise to the board and will seek to continue balancing financial challenges while maintaining an excellent educational standard.

They have a vested interest in the school, each having had children enrolled in District 86, and are committed to providing a curriculum that will challenge the students and provide the foundation for success in the future. They are also committed to ensuring a diverse offering of extracurricular activities while always looking at the district's finances and operating within a balanced budget.

They are volunteers, willing to make a commitment to the community for no other reason than their desire to make a difference. They have no hidden agendas; they just want to assure the future academic excellence which we have come to expect at our schools.

While certain anonymous websites have misrepresented facts regarding issues in the district, I would encourage you to look at the real facts. The schools are the foundation of our community. Many of us choose to live here primarily for the uncompromising quality of our high schools. Let’s not lose sight of what is important.

Join me in continuing to Build on Excellence by voting for Brennan, Gorgol, Gallo and Rosenthal – Nos. 3, 4, 5, 6 — for District 86.
