Huntley District 158 fills Michael Skala's seat

By STEPHEN DiBENEDETTO - sdibenedtto@shawmedia.com

HUNTLEY – The District 158 board this week unanimously selected a personal friend of Michael Skala to fill the seat vacated by the longtime board president.

Michael Fleck, a Huntley attorney who has chaired Skala’s school board campaigns, was appointed in a special meeting Thursday to finish the former president’s term, which ends in April.

First elected to the board in 1997, Skala left in November after winning a seat on the McHenry County Board.

Fleck also was the only nonincumbent candidate to file for the April school board election. The district board ballot is uncontested.

The appointment gives him an early start on the board.

He previously served on the Huntley Library Board, the McHenry County Bar Association of Governors and the Centegra Foundation Board of Directors.

“After I get my feet wet, I just want to contribute what I can to what the board has been trying to do already, which is providing top-notch education,” Fleck said.
