Past election years for Indian Prairie Unit District 204 have seen loads of candidates and lots of hot-button issues. This year, the tone of much of the race is decidedly non-controversial. Much of that is due to the current leadership on the board. Board President Curt Bradshaw and Vice President Alka Tyle have both done an exemplary job in guiding the Naperville-Aurora district the last two years through the building of a new high school, the hiring of a new superintendent and in dealing with the financial storm affecting all districts. They are endorsed.
For the third spot, voters have two strong candidates to choose from -- Lori Price and Mark Rising. Both have a solid resume of involvement in the school district but we give the nod to Rising, as we did two years ago when he ran for the first time. Rising is a regular at school board meetings and is well-versed in all issues. Also running but with much less knowledge of the issues is Tricia Tillotson.
