 Once again, apathy rules in Berwyn.  Here is an amazing statistic - In Cicero, there were no contested races while in Berwyn we had a hotly contested race in D100.  Yet, the voter turnout in Cicero Elementary School District 99 was higher in an uncontested race (around 12%) than the voter turnout in South Berwyn District 100 in a contested race (around 8%).

For D100, 3 of my 4 won.  I was hoping Darlene would have gotten in, but I'm glad E. O'J got in, as well as Jenny & Mark.

 I was happy to see Elizabeth Jimenez win as well as Mark.  I was also disappointed that Darlene did not win.

  I think there was a concerted effort in the Latino community to see a Latina on the school board.  I think that was the main reason Elizabeth was able to win, in spite of Lovero's support of the other candidates.

 In District 100, it looks like Elizabeth Jimenez, Lisa Clemente, Jennifer Mitchell and Mark Titzer.

  Elizabeth will be the first Hispanic person to serve on the school board in a district that is over 70% Latino.

  Also, in D201, even though the race is uncontested, Board President Jeff Pesek is coming in with the lowest vote total.
Congrats to Elizabeth Jimenez because that has been a long time coming.  I wish her all the best as well as all of the winners in School District 100.

In other news, the TeeVee  is telling me Mayor Calderone was reelected in Forest Park by a mere 73 votes!

Amazing how many votes were cast for D201.  Where does it break down how many were from Cicero?

 Choose elementary schools, then find Berwyn.

The other big difference is that you can easily read what was happening in the community a decade ago on this site.  Good luck doing that on Facebook.

I need to figure out how to best bundle up the discussions here and donate them to the Berwyn Historical Society.  Its an interesting glimpse into life and current events.
