An already contested school board race in Indian Prairie Unit District 204 got one more candidate on the last day of filing Monday.

Newcomer Tricia Tillotson secured the last spot on the April ballot when she filed her nominating petitions at the district's headquarters before the deadline.


Four candidates, only two of whom are incumbents, filed first thing last week at Indian Prairie.

President Curt Bradshaw and Vice President Alka Tyle are each seeking their second full term. A third incumbent, Mark Metzger, won't seek re-election.

Joining the incumbents in the race to fill three seats on the school board are challengers Mark Rising and Lori Price. This will be Price's first campaign, while Rising fell 105 votes short in the 2009 race.

District 204 serves children in portions of Naperville, Aurora, Bolingbrook and Plainfield.
