U-46 board newcomers will challenge spending, communication
Apr 12, 2013 3:35 PM - Bartlett Trustee Frank Napolitano decided against running for re-election to the post he accepted in 2009 in favor of a bid for the Elgin Area School District U-46 school board. Voters elected him to the new role Tuesday night, along with Veronica Noland and incumbent board president Donna Smith. Napolitano labels himself a conservative with an eye toward fiscal responsibility and said shifting gears to education is giving him oversight of a far larger budget. Noland's focus is less on finance, more on communication as she looks toward her first term.
