text size: AAA

Voters in Mundelein High School District 120 are fortunate to have five eager and committed candidates from whom to choose for four seats. Among them is incumbent Robert Paliani, who deserves to remain for what he calls "unfinished business." In the three years since he was first appointed, he has been unafraid to ask questions and has urged the board to more closely tie the budget to a plan that moves toward the district's goals. The four newcomers are Patrick Browne, Laura Mellon, Paul Lohr and Tami Forman. Browne is a principal at a suburban parochial school and understands the elements of a good education. Mellon and Lohr both admit they face a learning curve on board functions but demonstrate an open mind and an ability to listen. Along with Paliani, we endorse Browne, Mellon and Lohr, who all say they are determined to work to improve Mundelein High School's image throughout the region. Forman has extensive volunteer experience but also is running for a Fremont Township seat, and because she intends to keep both posts if elected, we do not endorse her.
