They Cared!

Over a year ago I posted “Does District 103 Mater?”  In it I rhetorically asked if the good people in Lyons Elementary School District 103 cared that the mayor of Lyons had taken over the school district.  Well they did care, because two days ago three of Mayor Getty’s hand-picked school board members were voted out – they now have a minority of seats!

I can’t tell you how the news of this election buoyed my spirits.  After watching the worst kind of self-serving and anti-individual-rights politics for the past few months, it is refreshing to find out that people still care enough about their schools to vote for those who care about children.

Democracy still works in America for those who stand up for what is right.

  1. I am so happy.It was a good victory and honesty prevailed. Mike, you’re a good friend to D103. The district can now make some positive changes to benefit the students. This is how it should have been all along.

  2. It was with tremendous relief that I viewed the results of the April 4th election with friends at PJKlems. I knew people were tired of what was happening in 103 since parents in 103 care what happens with their children. The biggest thank you to Marge, Shannon, Earl, and Sharon, not to forget Deanna, Jerry, Gloria, Mary Kalfas, Shana, Helen, teachers of 103, staff members of 103, and everyone else that walked, talked, and worked so hard pitching in with dollars, time, and energy. We had a determination to make things right for kids and we won, THANK YOU.
