Status quo in District 46

Published: Thursday, April 4, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

To the Editor:

I understand why voters replace incumbents who are not doing their jobs well.

However, I don’t understand why there are nine people running for four open positions on the Prairie Grove District 46 School Board. The four incumbents have accomplished great things: Test scores are going up, and expenses are going down.

They lowered tax levies but still received the highest level of financial recognition in Illinois nine years in a row. For three years, Crain’s Chicago Business Magazine rated their district "Best Schools in McHenry County.” Seven times they received the Bright Star award for high test scores with low per-pupil expenses.

Fiscally responsible, open decision making and proven results. Sometimes it is good to put someone new in office. But for District 46, keep the incumbents: Laura Domoto and Charlotte Kremer on the ballot, and write-in candidates Mischelle Yantis and Vickie Marconi.
