Several candidates for District 86 Board Member were introduced to the members of the Downers Grove Township Republican Organization Monday night, January 14, 2013. DGTRO meetings are the second Monday of each month, and are open to the public.
Jennifer Babbington, a member of the Organization and a candidate for District 86 Board Member, spoke to the group and announced she is part of a four-member slate, also including Claudia Manley, Victor Casini and Edward Corcoran. (Four Members of the District 86 Board of Education will be elected April 9, 2013.) Roger Kempa was also present and was introduced to the Organization.
The three incumbents in the race, Dennis Brennan, DeeDee Gorgol, and Kay Gallo, filed their nominating papers together, and are expected to run together.
Candidates Roger Kempa and Roseanne Rosenthal, both with extensive careers in education administration, filed separately, and have not yet announced whether they will align with the incumbents, or run independently.
