Deerfield Parents, Community Members
Endorse Four Candidates
for the 109 School Board


DEERFIELD, Ill. (Tuesday, December 15) -- The 22 members of the Deerfield District 109 Caucus comprised of volunteer parents and community members are endorsing four candidates for the 109 Deerfield Public Schools (DPS) Board of Education. The candidates will be running for the four open seats in the April 6 election. Each seat is for a four‐year term.

To gain the Caucus’ endorsement, these candidates competed with others in an extensive vetting process that included detailed written answers and interviews.

“Our Caucus allows Deerfield parents and community members to engage significantly with potential candidates in a very fair and rigorous process,” said David Mutnick, Caucus Chair. "We support these four candidates as the best-qualified Deerfield community members, who can navigate the enormous challenges COVID-19 has brought, as well as other important issues that this district will face.”

“Each is an independent thinker, bringing a unique set of skills and views to the Board,” Mutnick continued. “They will challenge not only themselves but their fellow board members to think creatively and work together on issues, both big and small, with the aim of ensuring the best education for all 109 students.”
