I am writing in support of the candidacy of Jonathan Baum for the District 202 Board of Education in the April 5 election.  I have known Jonathan for many years and have admired his professional work as a civil rights lawyer, serving clients  pro bono, as well as his serving our youth as a member of the Youth Organizations Umbrella (YOU) Board.  Jonathan and I have not always agreed on some issues regarding education so I appreciate his ability to listen and discuss different points of view. As a former school board member, I admire the appreciation of a school board member’s responsibility as a steward of our children’s future that Jonathan brought to the District 65 Board and will bring to the District 202 Board.
