I strongly urge you to vote for Gerald R. "Jerry" Allen and Mary Ellen Young for the DuPage Regional Board of School Trustees on April 9. They currently serve on this important Board, which deals with school boundary changes, and they have proven that they deserve to be retained.
Gerald R. "Jerry" Allen, a long time Wheaton resident, is a former DuPage Country school teacher. A man of integrity, who has been active in the Wheaton community, he has a very strong background in insurance and finance.
Mary Ellen Young has impressive public educational credentials, having served for eight years on the Downers Grove Grade School District 58 Board of Education. She is a powerful spokesperson for youth.
They bring solid leadership skills and a strong sense of ethics to the Board. Mary Ellen Young and Gerald R. "Jerry" Allen will do what is right and best for the children and taxpayers of DuPage County.
C. James Carr
Former Mayor of Wheaton
