Phelan backs Lefko for River Forest D90 school board
Former District 200 Board of Education President John Phelan is endorsing Steve Lefko in his run for the River Forest District 90 School Board.
With the district in the midst of what could be direction-changing times for the board in the areas of curriculum and scheduling, Lefko is running to fill the last two years of a term. Voters will go to the polls April 2.
“Steve Lefko is a stunningly intelligent, informed, proactive and outspoken neighbor," Phelan wrote in a letter published by OakPark.com on March 19. "Steve will make sure the D90 board considers the hard questions necessary to keep our schools on a course consistent with the values of River Forest. I encourage all to get out and vote for these exceptional candidates.”
Phelan has also come out in support of incumbents Sara Spivy and Fred Arkin for Oak Park and River Forest High School District 200.
