“I think leaders don’t always

have the best ideas, I

think they can bring them

out and push them forward

but it doesn’t always

have to be their way so I

think [we can help Tinley]

by making sure we’re

good listeners and making

sure that everyone’s opinions

are heard,” Brennan

In a six-way race for three fouryear

terms with the Kirby School

District 140 Board of Education,

the LAS 4 KSD slate of incumbents

swept the race in the Consolidated

General Election the evening of

April 2.

John Lutz led the race with 3,254

votes (24.41 percent), with all 30

precincts reporting, according to

unofficial results from the Cook

County Clerk’s Office. Lisa Strand

followed with 3,239 votes (24.29

percent), then Chuck Augustyniak

with 3,206 votes (24.05 percent).

George Kowalski finished fourth

with 1,327 votes (9.06 percent),

Ryan Long fifth with 1,208 votes

(9.06 percent) and Rae Othman

sixth with 1,099 votes (8.24 percent).

“We worked hard for this with the

teachers, with the community, with

the parents. This was a big win for District

140,” Lutz said. “It was a district that really

believes in good education. It wasn’t

anything we anticipated. We worked very,

very hard for this.”

Strand said she did not expect the race

to go one way or another, but “we are so

very grateful for all of the support that

has been given to us for the last several

months.”

On behalf of the Kirby Education Association,

which is the teacher’s

union, vice president Melissa Peterson

endorsed the candidates in

February.

“We endorsed the slate because

they showed a long-standing history

of having kids’ needs first,”

Peterson said. “They were very integral

in making ethical decisions

for our school district. They have

been fiscally responsible with our

district resources and they are really

giving back to the community

by being on the school board. They

really feel that District 140 is an important

piece of the community and

this is how they have chosen to give

back.”

The slate believes that its message

of quality education and a balanced

budget is what spoke to the

voters during this election.

“It was inspiring to me that the

community has that kind of confidence

in our abilities at governance

on the school board,” Augustyniak said.

“Thank you for having confidence in

us,” Lutz said. “We definitely appreciate

it and we won’t let [the residents] down.”

Lutz has seven grandchildren attending

schools within Kirby School District 140,

Strand has two children at an elementary

school and two that are now in high

school and Augustyniak had two children

go through this district that are now in

high school.

trustee, they understand

how important it is and

understand how residents

look up to the members

on the board and deserve

to have their questions

answered, be respected

and deserve the decisionmaking

process to follow

what’s best for the village.

“We are fully committed

to making those things

happen.” Mueller said.

Mueller, Galante and

Brennan are to be sworn is

as Village trustees in May.
