GEL ELECTION PROFILE: Glen Ellyn School District 87 Questions 16-20

Question 16: Recent Illinois law allows counties to create a sales tax revenue stream that is earmarked only for school construction/capital projects and is proportioned amongst county school districts based solely upon student enrollment numbers (i.e. it is not means-tested). Would you, as Board member, support or oppose D87 calling on the County Board to approve creation of such a tax?

Question 11: What is your position on implementing late days instead of full snow days?

Luke Bear: I believe snow days are disruptive and cost money and thus would try and limit the number of snow days. I would therefore be open to ½ day snow days. However, I have not studied the underlying interests on this issue and thus would defer a detailed answer until I heard from the teachers, parents, students and administration.

Question 6: Why are these issues important to the community?

Luke Baer:
a.there is a symbiotic relationship between good schools and property values. Good schools help maintain or increase property values, high property values help support improvements in schools.
b.Due to the vagaries in State and Federal financial support and the disproportionate reliance on local property taxes for funding, deficit spending is not an option.
c.The Board must represent all students, all taxpayers, and all parents.

Question 1: What motivated you to seek a seat on the District 87 Board of Education?

Luke Baer: I am a write in candidate. I was motivated to run by the fact that only two candidates registered for the four open positions. The function of the Board is too important to allow it to become a victim of apathy.
