River Forest resident Steve Lefko, insisting that he wants to “be part of furthering an exceptional academic history,” is running for the District 90 School Board.
In a post to Facebook, Lefko shared that his commitment to the area runs deep.
“If you live in River Forest, I want you to know we chose to make this village our home and serving it well is something deep inside me,” he wrote. “I’ll use this page to share information occasionally so bear with me if D90 means nothing to you. If it does, then I encourage you to check out the site www.lefkoford90.org.”
Election Day is Tuesday, April 2 and Lefko said the contentious race serves as a sign of the times.
“It’s a sign of uncertainty in the community,” he added. “I want to be part of furthering an exceptional academic history that lead us and so many others to call River Forest home.”
Lefko's website states that he believes "physical safety is the highest priority," and that "the primary work of education is accomplished through curriculum and instruction."
