Dear Editor: 

On April 5 we’re voting to re-elect Katie Bailey to the District 65 School Board.  We urge the community to do the same.  

During a time of financial uncertainty, Katie brings her experience as chair of the District 65 finance committee.  She also brings her real-world business acumen and an MBA from the Wharton School of Business. 

During a time that requires leaders to blend excellence and results with compassion and understanding, Katie brings critical thinking and analysis.  She’s a leading voice in bringing District 65 together with Evanston Township High School.  Simply put, she’ll help District 65 better use our limited resources while listening to the community. 

Evanston needs Katie’s experience, talent and wisdom to work on difficult issues, which include school consolidation, coordinating students’ transition from middle to high school, and promoting parental involvement. 

We’ve seen Katie’s work firsthand – from volunteering at Northwestern University, the ETHS’ College Career Center and the YWCA.  Her wit, courage and honesty have made a difference for District 65.  Let’s let her continue to make a positive impact on our schools and our community.  Re-elect Katie Bailey on April 5.  


Adam and Lori Goodman
