District 90 school board candidate Lefko kicks campaign into high gear before April 2 election
Steve Lefko is reminding River Forest District 90 School Board voters of all the things other area leaders have had to say about him in his run for office.
With the April 2 election now less than two weeks away, Lefko recently mailed out a flyer featuring the endorsements of former District 200 Board President John Phelan, River Forest Village Trustee Susan Conti and retired Hephzibah Executive Director Mary Anne Brown
Lefko has long had an active voice on critical issues in the community and sees the school board election as a particularly critical issue in District 90.
“I’ve been a volunteer since I lived here and have served on various committees,” he recently told West Cook News. “Now is a really important time in the district because a lot of changes are happening that put us in a spot where we need more diversity, new ideas and an analytical approach, and more than ever I feel a need to be involved.”
Lefko has made the fight against rising property taxes a staple of his campaign, adding that it is now more important than ever that school boards tighten their budgets to help more people be able to save their homes.
“I will fight to keep spending under control,” he said.
In all, there will be four seats available on the board in the Tuesday, April 2 election, including incumbents Cal Davis, Barb Hickey and Rich Moore.
