Endorsement: Friend, Heim, Voltaggio, Weinstock in Glenbard District 87
Voters in Glenbard High School District 87 have a strong pool of candidates to choose from on April 9 to fill four seats on the school board. Three incumbents are running along with a longtime former teacher, an involved parent and a graduate of just two years ago looking to give back to his community. Robert Friend, Richard Heim and F. Thomas Voltaggio are the incumbents seeking new four-year terms, and they all should be re-elected. Voltaggio of Glen Ellyn is the dean of the board, having served for 20 of the last 22 years. He says the district "has never been in a better position than it is now," and we agree. The district is high performing both academically and financially and has relatively few areas of concern raised by the challengers. Both Heim, the current board president, and Friend are from Lombard and seeking a second term. They cite the five-year teacher contract agreed to in 2012 as a highlight of the current board. For the remaining seat, we choose Judith Weinstock of Glen Ellyn. A retired Glenbard West teacher, she brings the broadest depth of knowledge to the board among the challengers. Also running are Jennifer Jendras of Lombard and Anthony Schullo, a 2011 Glenbard North graduate attending North Central College.
