School boards decide how much you will pay in property taxes and make important decisions that affect your child's education and your property values.
Those are good reasons to spend an hour or so Thursday to hear them debate.
Six candidates are running for four available school board positions in Park Ridge-Niles School District 64.
The debate, sponsored by the schools' Parent Teacher Organizations and the teachers' association, will begin at 7:30 to 9 p.m. at Washington School, 1500 W. Stewart (at the corner of Western), Park Ridge.
Come ready to ask a question, as moderator Gail Haller, executive director of the Park Ridge Chamber of Commerce, will take questions from the audience.
The candidates include:
- Dathan Paterno
- Benjamin Seib
- Vicki Lee
- Rick Van Roeyen
- Terry Cameron
- Scott Zimmerman
