Candidates bring ethics, balance to COD board

As the College of Du­Page enters a new phase of accountability and oversight, the April 2 consolidated election is an opportunity to reinforce a good governance legacy for COD to ensure the institution serves our students and the community as a whole.

We have carefully reviewed the candidates running for COD and have chosen to endorse two candidates who will bring good ethics and balance to the board: Annette Corrigan of Wheaton and Marc Incrocci of Darien. They are the top two on the ballot and should be your top two choices.

Annette Corrigan is a Wheaton community leader. As a married mother of four, she is passionate, qualified and possesses a strong legal background - particularly critical given the pre-reform Board's failure to comply with state transparency laws. She has a complete awareness of the challenges the college will face in both the short and long term; and keen understanding of how the college impacts the county's taxpayers.

Marc Incrocci is a lifelong resident of DuPage County. Marc will be a champion for expanding access to our classes and job training within the trades; a key area where jobs exist, and qualified applicants do not. It's a perfect mission where COD can provide concrete solutions and facilitate job growth. As a Director of Organization Development, Marc understands the need for an educated and skilled workforce. This will lend itself very well to many of the College's initiatives; Project Hire-Ed and Guided Pathways.

After a deliberate and careful review, we are endorsing Annette Corrigan and Marc Incrocci for the COD Board. We hope you will join us in supporting them. Annette and Marc are position 1 and 2 on the ballot for College of Du­Page board of trustees. They will both prove to be exceptional trustees.
