We would like to take a moment to acknowledge our readers who have been cranking out the hits since the launch of this blog, which officially was May 28, 2013. The hits have been rising off the charts super fast in recent days, to which we are most appreciative. The energy and comments give us the motivation and determination to see the process of change work through an elective process, which we hope will be the case come April 7.
In the meantime, we eagerly await the upcoming D181 candidate debate this Thursday, March 5 at Hinsdale Middle School beginning at 7pm. We hope the debate will provide residents with a forum to ask questions of the candidates; we are also hopeful the Hinsdalean staff will display the utmost professionalism and fairness when questioning candidates. After all, the debate should be about the election process and proper vetting of candidates, not an opportunity for a local newspaper to be on the defensive or to show preferential treatment toward any candidates. There is not a chance that would happen, right? Ahem, cough, cough.....
Seriously, now more than ever we need to be engaged in the election and in district matters. Let's not forget - round 3 of the Learning for All (Some) plan will be "presented" at the next BOE meeting on Monday, March 9. As we rejoice in our greatest hits, we can already hear the administrative chuckles, giggles, sighs, deflection, double-double talk, justifications, and abject petulance if questions arise that can't be answered (always the case). Readers, now is the time to show up and be heard.
See you at the debate on Thursday 7pm at HMS and the BOE meeting next Monday, March 9, 7pm at Elm School.
