To quote Dr. Witherspoon, "It's a great day to be a Wildkit!"
I am pleased to announce that Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin and U.S. Representative Jan Schakowsky have given me their endorsement for the board!
Larry: "District 202 should have a Board member who knows what needs to happen in a classroom for our students to succeed. Russ is that person. "
Welcome! My name is Russ Kohnken, and I'm running for the Evanston Township High School board. The election is April 4, 2017. Here you can find out more about me and my positions. You can add your thoughts on the Blog for Board Goal pages. You can offer your help. I look forward to working with you to improve the education of our children.
Please also visit my Facebook page (facebook.com/kohnkenfor202 or use the button below), where you can find posts from supporters, former students, and other community members. I will also post events, such as public forums, that I will be attending.
One such forum, held at ETHS on March 7, can be seen here: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/100717665. Although 1.5 hr long, it is perhaps the best place to see all six candidates and see where we stand.
The candidates have submitted questionnaires to a number of information sources. They provide good questions and relatively detailed answers. Here they are: http://patch.com/illinois/chicago/2017-election-russell-kohnken-district-202-board-education, http://www.evanstonroundtable.com/main.asp?SectionID=32&SubSectionID=126&ArticleID=13293, and http://ptacouncil.weebly.com/uploads/4/7/2/0/47200517/cnc-ptac_d65-d202_2017_russell___kohnken.pdf.

I make reference to several board reports and meetings in these videos. Links to those can be found on the board goal #1 page.
