Post-election survey

Many thanks to everyone who responded to our post-election survey. Your feedback will help provide direction for Right Track, not just in future school board elections, but in how we value and communicate about our schools.

The voters have spoken

It's been a long and challenging campaign, and it all came to a close tonight in the best way possible: a decisive victory for all four of the Caucus-nominated candidates.

We couldn't be more proud of Tom Nemickas, Sally Davis, Ted Moorman, and Dave Lane for the way they presented themselves throughout the campaign. They are four wonderful individuals who, together, will make the board even stronger and will continue moving Lake Forest High School in a positive direction.

Disclosures on campaign mailers

We're recently seen a strange claim by the "Final Four" that our mailers have not contained the required legal notice about what committee paid for the mailer. We can't figure out why Jennifer Neubauer keeps saying that; all of our mailings and emails have contained that disclosure language.

Please use the links below to see the Right Track mailers and ads (note that our committee name is Residents United to Protect Our Schools).

Mailer 1: Let's keep LFHS working

Choice is not a gift, it's your right

The opposition slate seems to have finally realized that their slash-and-burn style of campaigning was not resonating with voters, so in their last couple of emails they’ve switched to a much more measured, focused approach.

It’s a pity they didn’t do that from the start. We could have had a civil, respectful campaign that discussed meaningful metrics and explored differences in perspectives and priorities.

But now it’s too little, too late. Voters can’t forget that these are the same people who’ve been lobbing firebombs at us for months.

Shedding light on the opposition

Today the “Final Four” sent out an email apparently intended to tell voters what nice people they really are.

And individually they probably are. No doubt they have families who love them, colleagues who respect them, and friends who enjoy their company.

But collectively, these individuals have run a brand of campaign that won’t soon be forgotten in Lake Forest, Lake Bluff, and Knollwood. Nor, we fear, will it be the last of its kind.

A letter from Dr. Tom Nemickas

Tom Nemickas has asked us to share this letter in which he expresses his thoughts on the opposition's attack on his character and reputation, and shows us clearly the fine board member he will be.

To the Lake Forest, Lake Bluff, and Knollwood Voters,

I wanted to reach out and clarify a few details about the comments that have been made against me, attacking my integrity and character.
