District 214 slate appears poised to continue undefeated streak

In Northwest Suburban High School District 214, the three candidates on the Friends of District 214 establishment slate - undefeated in local elections since forming in 2007 - appear poised to continue that streak.

With all precincts reporting, 24-year incumbent and board President Bill Dussling had 11,665 votes; current River Trails Elementary District 26 board member Frank Fiarito had 10,953 votes; and 23-year incumbent Alva Kreutzer had 10,752 votes, according to unofficial totals.

Elizabeth Bauer, a frequent critic of the board and administration, had 8,457 votes, and Misa Edwardsen, a parent who also has raised concerns at board meetings, had 5,883 votes.

Three 4-year terms are up for election.

As they did 17 years ago, Dussling and Kreutzer are leading the search for a new superintendent in the wake of longtime district leader David Schuler's departure in February. After completing rounds of interviews with candidates in closed session, a hiring decision by the board could come sometime this month, Dussling said.
