Got a question for PLSD candidates?

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

All seven board members running for Plainfield School Board were at last night's meeting.

Two - Dave Obrzut and Roger Bonuchi - are both on the board.

The others are taking notes. They are: William Dargan Jr., Kevin Kirberg, Greg Nichols, Anthony Scala and Tommie Van.

School board President Stuart Bledsoe who is not running for re-election introduces each of the candidates at the board meetings which is pretty classy.

Who are they? What do they stand for? Why are they running?

Well, next week, we'll find out a bit more at CAPE's Candidates' Forum at 7 p.m. Feb. 22 in the auditorium at Plainfield Central High School, 24120 W. Fort Beggs Drive, Plainfield.

If you want to ask a question to be presented at the meeting, you got until Feb. 20th to send one in.

Questions can be sent to Please put "Candidates Forum Questions" in the subject line. Deadline to send questions is Feb. 20.

Laura Ries Dralle, board president of CAPE, said the forum is an important event for the community.

"The CAPE organization has a long and rich tradition of hosting the Candidates Forum, which offers parents and taxpayers alike the opportunity to personally meet and determine the positions of the people running for the Board of Education through an objectively moderated, ninety-minute question and answer session," she said.

My questions-
1) Do any of you have an immediate family members that work for District 202?
2) What does that person do?
3) Have you been endorsed by the teachers union?
4) How much money does the teachers union give the candidate they endorse?
