Dear “Final Four Candidates:”
I am a longtime resident of Lake Forest with four children who have utilized the phenomenal educational opportunities offered in our community, both public and private. We are a family dedicated to service and appreciate all who are willing to contribute to the advancement of our community on the various boards, commissions and Lake Forest Caucus. We are indebted to these dedicated individuals and they deserve the respect of all in our community, even and perhaps especially, when dealing with difficult issues that have the potential to divide our community.
Others in the community must be questioning the ethics of a group that publicly hurls legal allegations against prominent members of our community while quietly securing funding, distorting statistics and violating the privacy rights of our school families. I guess we shouldn’t be surprised given the way you have misappropriated the NCAA’s protected trademark in your campaign – “The Final Four.” If this is what you are willing to do to get elected, I fear for what you will feel entitled to do once in a position of authority.
As you like to say, “our children are watching.” It is my hope that our children have learned a great deal about the importance of service, commitment to community and respect for others – perhaps just not in the way many of us would have chosen to teach them.
