Letter: Candidates bring valuable experience

Updated 3/29/2023 1:20 PM

As a former District 64 school board president and longtime Park Ridge resident, I am writing in enthusiastic support of Rachel Georgakis, Monica Milligan, Matt Doubleday and Denise Pearl for the D64 School Board. I served on the D64 school board for eight years and am concerned about the current direction and reputation of our school district. While I honor all who are willing to serve our community, these four candidates have the requisite education and board experience to help refocus our district, foster more cooperative relationships and ensure our school system supports all learners in reaching academic success.

Georgakis, Milligan and Pearl combined have over 70 years of experience in education in a variety of roles and settings. Doubleday brings a rich understanding of a board's role and responsibilities as evidenced by his experience serving on over a dozen nonprofit boards.


This combined skill set will be an immense asset to our schools and community.

Please join me in voting for Georgakis, Milligan, Doubleday and Pearl on April 4.
