"I am committed to priorities that are on everyone's mind -- lower property taxes, a focus on the environment and preserving our wetlands, and a government that works for all of us, not just the well-connected," Parekh said in an announcement of his candidacy.

The seat is now held by Republican Mike Rummel of Lake Forest, who's been on the board since 2012.

The 12th District encompasses portions of Lake Forest, Deerfield and Knollwood.
