If it's a sign selling my house, no you can't, but I am sure it's one for your office, so go ahead.

I spent the weekend in the sun and 50s.

Subject: Manor Lake Meeting

Hi folks: Shane is out of town and I wondered if we were planning a meeting this month on Tuesday next week. I do
not have the list to send a notice to people and I do not know how to reserve the state bank of the lakes. Does anyone
know? If you do just send me notice and I can take care of. Danny and or I will handle meeting. and Mary will have to
be informed so she can prepare some type of financial report ...... Chris

                      The budget meeting went well. We were done by 8pm. Tia came but left because she too was feeling sick
                      - as in stomach flu sort sick! Yikes! I hope I did not catch it. No symptoms yet.

                      She mentioned a teacher who worked summer schook and did not get paid due to the 6% issue. We
                      should talk later this week on that.

                      Yes! You need help. I will help you. Call Alex also. Call the PR guy. I will call Springfield again today.

Subject: Daily Herald endorsement interview

Candidates:
I'd like to invite you to an editorial endorsement session for the Grayslake Elementary District 46 school board race at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 10 at the Daily Herald's
Lake County bureau office, 1795 N. Butterfield Road, Suite 100, Libertyville.
Because our newspaper must interview a great number of candidates running in contested races in the April election as part of the endorsement process, it is not possible to
negotiate the scheduling of these sessions. I hope you'll understand and make arrangements to attend.
I will represent the editorial board. Bob Susnjara will be in attendance as a reporter. Our discussion should be considered on the record and will be used for the purposes of
writing issue stories related to the District 46 race and as a component of the endorsement process. The endorsement session should take about an hour to complete.
Please confirm your attendance as soon as possible with a return email.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
See you then.
Thanks.
Pete Nenni
Lake County editor/manager
(847) 680-5510

 Good Morning,

 I was wondering if it would be possible to set up a meeting with the Union Pres. and perhaps some Reps.
 and the Candidates for school board?
 As I've stated, I would like to see as many opinions and hear from all sides so that when decisions are
 made, everyone feels heard and accounted for.

 The purpose of the meeting would be the same as the tours we've been taking: to hear about the
 dynamics, workings of, operations, needs, and wants, etc.

 If this meeting is possible, could you please offer a time and date (preferably in the morning or around the
 4:30-5:00 hour)?

 Thank you for your consideration.

 Regards,


 Shannon N. Smigielski

 Hello, we have been discussing at my Executive Board meetings about this very possibility of either a face to face meet the candidates or a
 survey sent to all of you and then we would publish the results in a newsletter to the staff ... we are meeting as a small group today and I will let
 you know what they decide would be best for the group to do to help get the word out of how each candidate stands on the issues that affect us
 all .. take care and I will be in touch, Diane E.

We're leaning towards the survey because I think a forum would draw too many outside people who we couldn't let in to the meeting because it
would have to be members only .. also I don't want the publishing aspect to hurt us .. on another note-- I will ask the exec board today about
approaching the membership for the endorsement.. take care, Diane E.

I don't know.

I think Diane is treading on some dangerous water. If some sort of forum was set-up away from the district, I'd
probably consider attending (also I'd have to be pretty darn sure that it was as fair as possible). I am not
answering another survey.

Hello, we have been discussing at my Executive Board meetings about this very possibility of either a face to face meet
the candidates or a survey sent to all of you and then we would publish the results in a newsletter to the staff. .. we are
meeting as a small group today and I will let you know what they decide would be best for the group to do to help get
the word out of how each candidate stands on the issues that affect us all .. take care and I will be in touch, Diane E.

Good Morning,

I was wondering if it would be possible to set up a meeting with the Union Pres. and perhaps some Reps.

The purpose of the meeting would be the same as the tours we've been taking: to hear about the dynamics,
workings of, operations, needs, and wants, etc.

If this meeting is possible, could you please offer a time and date (preferably in the morning or around the
4:30-5:00 hour)?

Thank you for your consideration.

Also, the letter we need to go out to teachers is being written as we speak. I need to have a list, from you, of anything

I am trying to get as many donations as possible through the IEA. Great union. I will work on Diane the week after
conferences.
The conversation I had with Alex was great. We could hire a part time manager for 5000.00 I said we did not have the
cash. He said he could help us for free when he is able. Right now he is working on an aldennan's election.

We will do this Sue. We just need a committee. Can you work on that? Call Jill.

You should probably make absolutely sure that 4 others will be there to vote (that means we have to have

Agreed. We really need to have a sit down with Ellen, you and me. Would you like me to request one? I could
probably do the 15, right after school. I have Mitch's conference at 5:50.

Also, the letter we need to go out to teachers is being written as we speak. I need to have a list, from you, of anything
you feel needs to be in it.
I am trying to get as many donations as possible through the lEA. Great union. I will work on Diane the week after
conferences.
The conversation I had with Alex was great. We could hire a part time manager for 5000.00 I said we did not have the
cash. He said he could help us for free when he is able. Right now he is working on an alderman's election.

We will do this Sue. We just need a committee. Can you work on that? Call Jill.
Finally, do you want me to contact Shannon?

   I am sorry that I misunderstood your request... My Executive Board has decided to offer a survey to the candidates to let us know some more
   information about each person. I really have never had a request such as the below (that is why the misunderstanding happened) so I will
   need to discuss this with my field service rep as to how to proceed. I am sorry for the delay but I will get back to you as soon as possible.
   Thank you for your patience. Diane E.

     Hi Diane,

    Thanks for getting back to me. My request was in an effort to learn more about you, the union reps.
    etc. so that if I am elected to a seat on the board, I enter with the same background of information that
    us candidates are being offered and learning from at the schools via the tours. "The purpose of the
    meeting would be the same as the tours we've been taking: to hear about the dynamics, workings of,
    operations, needs, and wants, etc."
     Just as the candidates were given the opportunity to tour each school and see the
    ins/outs/chalienges/strengths, I was hoping do be able to do the same with you. I was hoping for a
    conversation, not an interview or survey.

    The Daily Herald has already done a candidate interview and asked questions on where we stand; the
    questions were (at least on my end) answered in depth and give my stance. I can forward you a copy of
    their article once it is printed and you can share that with your members if you like.

 As I've stated, I would like to see as many opinions and hear from all sides so that when decisions are
 made, everyone feels heard and accounted for.


 If this meeting is possible, could you please offer a time and date (preferably in the morning or around

Yes, Sue told me about the interviews. We really need to understand what a 0 levy means - not only for the
budget, but also from a taxpayer perspective. Does it really cut tax bills?

OK, the interviews with the Herald were terrible. I was not in attendance because I had conferences. Sue said
each one was on the "no increase in the levy" platform.
I would like someone to sit down with these people and show the what that would look like.
Yes we have a small surplus; however, we also cut 2 admin positions in case our state and grant dollars did
not come in.

    David called MC back regarding his request to have the PMA excell spread sheets. PMA does NOT give
    them out.

    Here is his response. Returned call to David at 9:43 Am and berated David over Doreen not giving up
    proprietary spread sheets. He said that he can embarrass her publicly at the Board meeting on Wed. I am
    tired of these "f'ing games. These sheets are not proprietary. I know that they aren't. And I have asked
    for this many times, for years. I want pay schedules, in EXCELL in the scattergram form and I want them
    immediately.

Thanks for the photo shoot today! I'll watch for the pictures.

I think that we should go and talk to that campaign person. (I can pay for it and will if we really feel like she can
help). I am afraid that it will be getting too late if we wait until after the 22 nd .

Mary,

I called the company that Diane E. recommended for yard signs and was told that they no longer do yard signs. If
Diane thinks that they might do this as a 'special' request, do you think that she might call them on our behalf.

I did call the Crystal (campaign consultant) but as expected I didn't hear back from her.

The sign place that I used the last time, will charge us what I paid 4 years ago for 100 signs, about $735. They'll take
the design of the signs I used last time and make the changes that we want.

This is start I am too scattered I will settle down and think of some more questions. Sue


The first question dealt with using tax revenue or student fees to balance the budget.

I talked about how the system is flawed. It is difficult to levy no dollars when those dollars are needed for the
remained of the budget

There was a question about the auditors finding and should we have put it on the agenda for discussion.

I talked about this in term of the activity funds and said that the auditor told us that they didn't suspect wrong doing.
Could we have discussed the action plan, I said I guess we could have, but I said we now needed to monitor the
administrations progress on putting the action plan in place.

What would you have if you could have anything?

I talked in baby steps, putting programs back the way the left. More art and music for example

  They would look like this but with my name on it too. I cannot afford 700.00 for 100 signs. Can you give me a better price, or is that reasonable.
  I am running for reelection for my local school board. The names of Facklam and Garcia would be on the signs as would re elect and CCSD

 The first question dealt with using tax revenue or student fees to balance the budget.



 I talked about how the system is flawed. It is difficult to levy no dollars when those dollars are needed for the remained of the budget



 There was a question about the auditors finding and should we have put it on the agenda for discussion.



 I talked about this in term of the activity funds and said that the auditor told us that they didn't suspect wrong doing. Could we have discussed
 the action plan, I said I guess we could have, but I said we now needed to monitor the administrations progress on putting the action plan in
 place.



 What would you have if you could have anything?

High quality teachers. They are innovative and creative. They will drive the instruction of the children.



 I talked in baby steps, putting programs back the way the left. More art and music for example

100 signs with the ground stakes (for placing them in a lawn) would cost:

Mary,

I saw the quote on the signs. Let's work on the design and get them ordered OK? What do you have going on this
weekend? I'll throw the sign I have in the car and call you later about coming by (Jeff was working bond court and
he's coming out for us to take him to lunch). I'll bring the voter registration stuff, too, in case Erika is around. Or if
she wanted to round up a few friends, I could do it Sunday evening or Monday. (The kids need 2 pieces of IDs, one
with their picture and one with their address and their social security number.)

Did you look to see what non-certified school contracts you had?

Sue

How about the thing at Pat's on either March 22 nd or 24th? Karen said that these are both open. So are the dates
the week of spring break but she thinks that not doing it during spring break might be better.

Crystal did call me back last night at around 9 pm; she had been out of town. She can meet with us today, but not
until after 6:00 pm. Any chance that would work in your schedule?

In the message she said she'd try to call back within an hour, if I left her another message? OK with your schedule to
try and set this up?

Hi Mary,

The 200 price is firm.

These would take 7 -1 0 days maximum.

Also, we are going to start running the Biology books.

You will get these next Monday at the latest .. probably sooner.

Thanks.

Hi Mary,

Is there a cell phone number I can reach you at?

I will probably be able to deliver the Biology materials tomorrow, so maybe we could meet some time in the afternoon?

If that would work, let me know the times that you would be available, and we can go from there.

I can't remember anything these days? What was the price of 200 vs. 150? I think the 100 price was the same as
mine minus the wickets? Let's talk before the order is placed, OK?

Shannon Smigielski: Grayslake Elementary D46
City: Hainesville

Website: http://shannonforschoolboard.com

Office sought: Grayslake Elementary D46

Age: 41

Family: Manied to hard cst working man I've ever known. Mother to two amazing daughters.

Occupation: School Bus Driver

Education: Candidate did not respond.

Civic involvement: Member of District 46 Finance Committee

Member of District 46 Anti- Bully Task Force

Member of District 46 Full-Day Kindergalten Committee

Elected offices held: Candidate did not respond.

Have you ever been arrested for or convicted of a crime? If yes, please explain: No

Q&A
Number 1 campaign issue
Ethical and Attentive Public Servants. Building a Board of Education that welcomes input and accounts for the entire community.

For too long, we have had Board members who listen to only those that agree with them and some have also shown little regard for
those who have concerns or suggestions.

I aim to change that. I may not agree with everything, but I will welcome everyone's input and look at every side before making a final
decision. If you offer your opinion, your suggestion, or your concern, my goal is that you will have confidence that you have been
welcomed, heard, and accounted for.

Number 2 campaign issue
Fiscal Responsibility. Building and maintaining a budget based on what is necessary for a quality education for students and funding
that is already provided.
I would like to see budgets based on actual funds rather than anticipated funds. In this regard, my hope is that we can stop going to the
taxpayers to fill a shortfall in revenue because anticipated funding isn't realized.

Number 3 campaign issue
Transparency. Building a completely transparent process so that when a member of the public has a question or concern, the
information is readily available. Districts are funded by taxpayers and they have the right to see how evelY penny is spent, how every
decision is made, and know that those who handle their money and their children's future, are doing it with honest and open
intentions.




                                                                                                                  JARRATT FOIA - 84
How should the district approach thc ncxt teachers union contract talks? Would you be willing to pursue salary cuts or freezes? Explain
your answer.
The district should approach the next teachers union contract talks with a clear objective: competitively compensating the teachers for
their work while maintaining a budget that can SUppOli staff salaries and benefits.
I would be willing to pursue a freeze in salaries if it eliminates the possibility of a reduction in staff or increase in class sizes.

Transparency has been an issue at District 46. How do you believe the district is doing with conducting the public's business? Any
suggestions for improvements?
I believe that District 46 has made many improvements in the area of transparency, but there is still work to be done. It has become
apparent that the Board has taken action in creating some policy for transparency but has not come behind the process to ensure
transparency is being implemented. One example includes that policy to place check registers on-line every month: the Board failed to
make sure this was happening and as a result, this simple transparency measure was not met for several months.
I hope to build a Board that leads with ethical intentions; the Board members keep their word even behind closed doors.

How do you view the relationship with South Carolina-based consultant Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence Inc., which has given
awards the district has promoted and hosted conventions that staffers have attended in warm-weather locations in Dccember?
While I am an advocate for professional development, I can not support the extravagance that has accompanied the Blue Ribbon
program. When we face budget shortfalls, trips to South Carolina and Disney World for professional development, can not be justified.

What steps, if any, should the district take in response to an audit late last year that found the need for tighter controls on student
activity funds?
Systems need to be implemented by the Board to guarantee the correct allocation of funding of taxpayer dollars. The business office
needs to be able to account for every dollar and how it is spent. If this means hiring an assistant to the Chief School Business Official,
then they should do that. If they need to have an auditor come in qualierly, then they should do that. EvelY dollar counts in a budget
that continues to have a shOlifall and it is the responsibility of the Board to maintain good stewardship of tax dollars.

Do you think the names of individuals who are the subject of personnel action in an open meeting should appear on the agenda for the
meeting? Why or why not? Currently the district omits the names of such individuals.
I do think that the names of individuals who are the subject of potential employment in the district should be on the agenda. This
allows for complete transparency in the hiring process and eliminates any potential claims of nepotism or other potential conflicts of
interest.

Marchell Norris: Grayslake Elementary D46


City: Round Lake

Website: http://www.NorrisForSchoolBoard.com

Office sought: Grayslake Elementary D46

Age: Candidate did not respond.

Family: I come from a family with two sisters and one brother. All of the men in my family served proudly in the       u.s Military. I am the
mother of one daughter that currently attends 5th grade at Park School.

Occupation: Private Business Owner (Outside of District 46)

Education: BS Business DePaul University Chicago Illinois

MBA University of Notre Dame South Bend Indiana

Civic involvement: Church Volunteer

CASA Volunteer

Elected offices held: NjA

Have you ever been arrested for or convicted of a crime? If yes, please explain: No

Q&A
Number 1 campaign issue
Implementing policies that ensure school district #46 is held financially accountable to the taxpayers of Grayslake, while maintaining
the quality of education within our schools.

Number 2 campaign issue
Transparency of all business related for which taxpayer money is used. It is my belief that this is a requirement in order for financial
accountability to be effective. At all times we must remember that we are stewards of the money provided by the taxpayers, therefore
school districts must be set up to provide access to any and all information that allow the taxpayers to review how their money is being
spent, and make decisions regarding changes they would like to see made.

Number 3 campaign issue
Ethical decision making is my third campaign issue, because I believe without policies in place that not only direct but require school
boards, and administrators to follow the will of the people, the system will not work effectively. Ethical decisions are not a function of
how 7 people on a school board ....feel .... , ethical decisions are calibrated against how well they align with the the policies that are in
place.

How should the district approach the next teachers union contract talks? Would you be willing to pursue salary cuts or freezes? Explain
your answer.
The district should approach the next teacher's union talks with an open mind and the realization that we are all in this together. We all




                                                                                                                       JARRATT FOIA - 86
want what is best for the children in the long term. Therefore, I believe it is essential that wc bc able to tackle all issues to ensure that
we can protect the long term viability of the schools in our district.

Transparency has been an issue at District 46. How do you believe the district is doing with conducting the public's business? Any
suggestions for improvements?
I strongly believe that at all times individuals in public office need to remember that they are stewards of the taxpayer's money.
Therefore, it is incumbent upon any individual in public office to be prepared to explain, justify or defend decisions that are made and
clearly communicate how they 1) align with current policy or 2) are part of a recommendation for a change in policy. My
recommendation to District 46 is to adopt a policy of transparency to ensure that at all times, the taxpayers are aware of and agree with
how their their tax dollars are being spent.

How do you view the relationship with South Carolina-based consultant Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence Inc., which has given
awards the district has promoted and hosted conventions that staffers have attended in warm-weather locations in December?
I helieve that often times perception is just as important as thp. filcts snrrOlmning illl issue, therefore it is imperative that we as a district
not allow ourselves to fall into a situation that would appear to be inappropriate and at all times make decisions about meeting
locations, etc separate from decisions made about consultancy agreements.

When a consulting company lands a high dollar from the contract front eh district and then later hosts meetings in warm weather
locations like Myrtle Beach or Disney it can have the perception of impropriety. This is why states like Massachusetts completely
outlawed this type relationship between physicians and medical device and dmg companies, to ensure that patient health was the only
reason that doctors were prescribing and not be invited to posh warm weather locations to ''''discuss issues"".

What steps, if any, should the district take in response to an audit late last year that found the need for tighter controls on student
activity funds?
The district should create a policy that puts tighter controls on student activity funds. It is highly inappropriate for the district to require
money from hard working taxpayers, many of whom, took on extra shifts or additional work to ensure that their child could afford to
participate in extracurricular activities, to only later be told that the funds were unaccounted for. When this issue made headlines it was
saddening because this type behavior is disrespectful to the parents, the students and not indicative of the capabilities of the high
caliber teachers, staff and administrators that we have in District 46.

Do you think the names of individuals who are the subject of personnel action in an open meeting should appear on the agenda for the
meeting? Why or why not? Currently the district omits the names of such individuals.
Ultimately it is the taxpayer's dollars that are funding any personnel decision and I believe that all issues which are funded by taxpayer
dollars should be completely open for taxpayers to review and comment. this would include new hire positions. Grayslake constituents
should know who is being hired in the distI1Ct. Their role, their qualifications as well as their background, should all be open for review.

In addition, there is a direct relationship between the success of the child in school and parental involvement. Parents need to know
who could be interacting with and around their child. If a person is the subject of personnel action parents have a right to know the
nature of the action. Parents need to know the specific details of what is happening at their child's school at all times, they must have
access to information that will allow them to make informed decisions about what is in the best interest of their child.

Susan Facklam: Grayslake Elementary D46
City: Grayslake

Website: Candidate did not respond.

Office sought: Grayslake Elementary D46

Age: 58

Family: Resident of Graylake for 19 years. Married, 3 boys, 2 are college graduates and the youngest is a senior at Grayslake North High
School

Occupation: RN, but not presently working

Education: Practical Nursing School, St. Francis Hospital, Cincinnati, OH 1979 and Associate Degree in Science in Nursing, Elgin
Community College, 1990

Civic involvement: I serve on the executive and governing boards of the Special Education District of Lake County. I am a member of
the Booster Club of Grayslake North High School as well as the Principal's Adivisory Committee. In the past, I also served on the ITF
(Avon School) and the PTO (Frederick and Grayslake Middle School). And was an active volunteer.

Elected offices held: Elected to school board in 2003

Have you ever been arrested for or convicted of a crime? If yes, please explain: No

Q&A
Number 1 campaign issue
I continue to have multiple priorities for the school district. My overall goal is to continue to advance progress toward establishing and
maintaining high quality education for the 4000 students who reside in our district.

Number 2 campaign issue
It is important to continue to advance progress in this district while maintaining strong fiscal responsibility. Property ta'(es are high in
the district and the economic recovery is slow. It will be vital that we have knowledgeable and experienced board members who are able
to look very closely at spending (which must include a detailed look at individual line items on the budget) to ensure that spending is
thoughtful and responsible. More importantly, spending decisions and/ or possible budget reductions should always be framed within
the principle that our children always come first.

Number 3 campaign issue
Supporting and enhancing the quality of our teachers, programs and curriculum. While students come first, the teachers are the
backbone of the district. I am continually impressed with the quality, enthusiasm and commitment of our teachers. It will be important
to support efforts to provide our teachers with the tools and skills to be even more effective and to align our curriculum with current
standards and best practices.

How should the district approach the next teachers union contract talks? Would you be willing to pursue salary cuts or freezes? Explain
your answer.
The current teacher contract expires in June, 2012. In the current contract, there is a memorandum of understanding that states that
the union will agree to return to the bargaining table to discuss contractual issues surrounding compensation if the board requests that
the union do so. However, the union is under no contractual obligation to agree to any proposed changes, including salary concessions.




                                                                                                                    JARRATT FOIA - 90
To begin the FY2012 budgeting process, the board will review the financial projections for the FY2012 at the FebruaIY 2, 2011 board
meeting. At that time we'll be able to make a better assessment of what budget changes may be needed to ensure the continued
financial health of the district. Any impact on the final year of the present teachers' contract is uncertain. However, salary cuts or
freezes are always a possibility. Over the past 7 years I have played an integral role in the negotiations with the union as I bring detailed
knowledge of our district's finances and the negoti ation process.

Transparency has been an issue at District 46. How do you believe the district is doing with conducting the public's business? Any
suggestions for improvements?
I believe that the district is doing a good job in this area. We've made many changes over the past year to improve communications
with parents, students and the community at large. The most significant change this last year is that the board agreed to post our
detailed check journal online. Remember, the activities of the Board are governed by the Open Meetings Act. All discussions involving
more than 2 Board members must be conducted publically. Open, thoughtful and respectful discussion is encouraged and necessary to
ensure that the needs and desires of the parents and the community are met.

How do you view the relationship with South Carolina-based consultant Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence Inc., which has given
awards the district has promoted and hosted conventions that staffers have attended in warm-weather locations in December?
Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence, Inc., is a non-profit educational organization committed to ensuring that all students achieve their
highest potential by providing schools with measurable and sustainable solutions. The program assists all schools, with a special focus
on low socioeconomic, culturally diverse, and low performing communities of learning in assessing the quality of their academic and
instmctional programs and in developing a school-wide action plan to ensure measurable student achievement.

While I acknowledge that the cost of the program is controversial, the district has derived numerous benefits from our association with
this non-profit organization. For example, teachers use more data driven instruction and 'data dens' that documents each and every
student's progress. This is especially helpful with students who require different types of intervention, which is particularly prevalent in
our district. Also as a result of their involvement in our district, we are putting more emphasis on technology and making sure that it is
integrated appropliately. Cost-effective use of educational consultants and experts will assist our efforts to improve our curriculum and
how we deliver the material to our students.

What steps, if any, should the district take in response to an audit late last year that found the need for tighter controls on student
activity funds?
Although, the independent auditor pointed out some weakness in this area, they also clearly stated that they didn't feel as though there
was any wrong doing. The audit suggested that some items that were listed in the activity fund should probably been more properly
recorded as district funds. The audit also stated that many of the funds had negative balances.

As a result, the auditors suggested a plan that our administration and business manager has put in place to correct this deficiency. The
board was given a copy of this action plan. The monitoring of the plan will be an ongoing process. I expect the board will receive
periodic updates and will need to question the administration to make sure that the necessary steps put in place were adequate. Also,
funds that have negative balances or have been inactive for a long period of time will need to be corrected or closed. Stronger
accounting and business management practices have long been one of my key priorities.

Do you think the names of individuals who are the subject of personnel action in an open meeting should appear on the agenda for the
meeting? Why or why not? Currently the district omits the names of such individuals.
The personnel agenda item covers resignations, dismissals, leave of absences and new hires. I believe that an individual's privacy
should be protected until the board takes action. As soon as the board takes action, the names on the personnel report do become
public. I would suggest that to be clearer the action item should state which positions are being hired as well as the number
resignations and/or leaves of absences that are being accepted. For example, it could be stated that on tonight's personal report there
are 3 new certified staff hires, one resignation to be accepted (and when) and 3 leave of absence requests.

**As Bio's become available, I will post each one here so you each have an opportunity to review and make informed choices.

Mary F. Garcia: Grayslake Elementary D46
City: Grayslake

Website: Candidate did not respond.

Office sought: Grayslake Elementary D46

Age: 48

Family: Husband: Bob Four children: Erika - 18, Nicole 15, Lauren 12, Mitchell 7

Occupation: Teacher

Education: Masters in Education St. Xavier

B.S. Education NIU

Civic involvement: Manor Lake Association - Preserving our fresh lakes in Lake Co. Grayslake Central High School Music Boosters

Elected offices held: CCSD 46 School board 2007 - 2011

CCSD 46 School Board president 2009 - present

Manor Lake Assoc. Treasurer lOyrs

Have you ever been arrested for or convicted of a crime? If yes, please explain: No

Q&A
Number 1 campaign issue
Funding and sustainability of the programs that are currently offered to children and to maintain AYP status.

Number 2 campaign issue
Afford our children the opportunities to become successful 21st century learners.

Number 3 campaign issue
Attracting and keeping an outstanding staff by providing a positive working environment.

How should the district approach the next teachers union contract talks? Would you be willing to pursue salary cuts or freezes? Explain
your answer.
The board is currently addressing all current contracts. The teacher's contract has an additional year left, so that will be tackled next
year. The teacher's did voluntarily cut their overall pay last year; I would hope that they would voluntarily open their contract again for
negotiations this year.

Transparency has been an issue at District 46. How do you believe the district is doing with conducting the public's business? Any
suggestions for improvements?
I believe that the term ''''transparency'''' holds different meanings depending on who you are. Presently, we have an outstanding website
and have proven our transparency by posting as much on line as our volunteer webmaster can put on.




                                                                                                                    JARRATT FOIA - 92
Many times the discussion of what is good for the education of our children has come second to arguments about being transparent. We
are one of the few district that ""live stream"" our board meetings. We also have our individual contact information on the web. Sue
Facklam, Vice President, and myself mect outside of our agenda meetings to make sure we are overly diligent in repolting out to the
public. Presently, I have been working with the Superintendent about making sure we are as clear as possible regarding the initiatives of
the district.

How do you view the relationship with South Carolina-based consultant Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence Inc., which has given
awards the -diStrict has promoted and hosted conventions that staffers have attended in warm-weather locations in December?
The Superintendent had announced that she is no longer sending staff out of state for professional growth. The Superintendent has
demonstrated to the board the continuing growth of the teachers using what the teachers and administration learned from out of state
conventions. Tech integration and data dens were two of the professional growth experiences the teachers brought back with them to
the district. This type of learning is invaluable to the district.

What steps, if any, should the district takc in response to an audit late last year that found the need for tighter controls on student
activity funds?
The business manager and Superintendent has been instructed to create an action plan. The auditor did say there was weakness in this
area; however, there was no wrongdoing. The Superintendent and Business Manager will report back to the board with the plan for us
to evaluate.

Do you think the names of individuals who are the subject of personnel action in an open meeting should appear on the agenda for the
meeting? Why or why not? Currently the district omits the names of such individuals.
Our district is quite large and the amount of personnel material is daunting. I would be against printing names on the agenda in order
to protect the privacy of individuals until their hiring is approved. We could state more clearly on the agenda the types of personnel we
are accepting for each position.

Susan Facklam: Grayslake Elementary D46
City: Grayslake

Website: Candidate did not respond.

Office sought: Grayslake Elementary D46

Age: 58

Family: Resident of Graylake for 19 years. Married, 3 boys, 2 are college graduates and the youngest is a senior at Grayslake North High
School

occupation: RN, but not presently working

Education: Practical Nursing School, St. Francis Hospital, Cincinnati, OH 1979 and Associate Degree in Science in Nursing, Elgin
Community College, 1990

Civic involvement: I serve on the executive and governing boards of the Special Education District of Lake County. I am a member of
the Booster Club of Grayslake North High School as well as the Principal's Adivisory Committee. In the past, I also served on the PTF
(Avon School) and the PTO (Frederick and Grayslake Middle School). And was an active volunteer.

Elected offices held: Elected to school board in 2003

Have you ever been arrested for or convicted of a crime? If yes, please explain: No

Q&A
Number 1 campaign issue
I continue to have multiple priorities for the school district. My overall goal is to continue to advance progress toward establishing and
maintaining high quality education for the 4000 students who reside in our district.

Number 2 campaign issue
It is important to continue to advance progress in this district while maintaining strong fiscal responsibility. Property taxes are high in
the district and the economic recovery is slow. It will be vital that we have knowledgeable and experienced board members who are able
to look very closely at spending (which must include a detailed look at individual line items on the budget) to ensure that spending is
thoughtful and responsible. More importantly, spending decisions and/ or possible budget reductions should always be framed within
the principle that our children always come first.

Number 3 campaign issue
Supporting and enhancing the quality of our teachers, programs and curriculum. While students come first, the teachers are the
backbone of the district. I am continually impressed with the quality, enthusiasm and commitment of our teachers. It will be important
to support efforts to provide our teachers with the tools and skills to be even more effective and to align our curriculum with current
standards and best practices.

How should the district approach the next teachers union contract talks? Would you be willing to pursue salary cuts or freezes? Explain
your answer.
The current teacher contract expires in June, 2012. In the current contract, there is a memorandum of understanding that states that
the union will agree to return to the bargaining table to discuss contractual issues surrounding compensation if the board requests that
the union do so. However, the union is under no contractual obligation to agree to any proposed changes, including salary concessions.




                                                                                                                    JARRATT FOIA - 95
To begin the FY2012 budgeting process, the board will review the financial projections for the FY2012 at the Februmy 2, 2011 board
meeting. At that time we'll be able to make a better assessment of what budget changes may be needed to ensure the continued
financial health of the district. Any impact on the final year of the present teachers' contract is uncertain. However, salary cuts or
freezes are always a possibility. Over the past 7 years I have played an integral role in the negotiations with the union as I bring detailed
knowledge of our district's finances and the negoti ation process.

Transparency has been an issue at District 46. How do you believe the district is doing with conducting the public's business? Any
suggestions for improvements?
I believe that the district is doing a good job in this area. We've made many changes over the past year to improve communications
with parents, students and the community at large. The most significant change this last year is that the board agreed to post our
detailed check journal online. Remember, the activities of the Board are governed by the Open Meetings Act. All discussions involving
more than 2 Board members must be conducted publically. Open, thoughtful and respectful discussion is encouraged and necessary to
ensure that the needs and desires of the parents and the community are met.

How do you view the relationship with South Carolina-based consultant Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence Inc., which has given
awards the district has promoted and hosted conventions that staffers have attended in warm-weather locations in December?
Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence, Inc., is a non -profit educational organization committed to ensuring that all students achieve their
highest potential by providing schools with measurable and sustainable solutions. The program assists all schools, with a special focus
on low socioeconomic, culturally diverse, and low performing communities of learning in assessing the quality of their academic and
instmctional programs and in developing a school-wide action plan to ensure measurable student achievement.

While I acknowledge that the cost of the program is controversial, the district has derived numerous benefits from our association with
this non-profit organization. For example, teachers use more data driven instmction and' data dens' that documents each and evelY
student's progress. This is especially helpful with students who require different types of intervention, which is particularly prevalent in
our district. Also as a result of their involvement in our district, we are putting more emphasis on technology and making sure that it is
integrated appropriately. Cost-effective use of educational consultants and experts will assist our efforts to improve our curriculum and
how we deliver the material to our students.

What steps, if any, should the district take in response to an audit late last year that found the need for tighter controls on student
activity funds?
Although, the independent auditor pointed out some weakness in this area, they also clearly stated that they didn't feel as though there
was any wrong doing. The audit suggested that some items that were listed in the activity fund should probably been more properly
recorded as district funds. The audit also stated that many of the funds had negative balances.

As a result, the auditors suggested a plan that our administration and business manager has put in place to correct this deficiency. The
board was given a copy of this action plan. The monitoring of the plan will be an ongoing process. I expect the board will receive
periodic updates and will need to question the administration to make sure that the necessary steps put in place were adequate. Also,
funds that have negative balances or have been inactive for a long period of time will need to be corrected or closed. Stronger
accounting and business management practices have long been one of my key priorities.

Do you think the names of individuals who are the subject of personnel action in an open meeting should appear on the agenda for the
meeting? Wby or why not? Currently the district omits the names of such individuals.
The personnel agenda item covers resignations, dismissals, leave of absences and new hires. I believe that an individual's privacy
should be protected until the board takes action. As soon as the board takes action, the names on the personnel report do become
public. I would suggest that to be clearer the action item should state which positions are being hired as well as the number
resignations and/or leaves of absences that are being accepted. For example, it could be stated that on tonight's personal report there
are 3 new certified staff hires, one resignation to be accepted (and when) and 3 leave of absence requests.

Good day, Mary.

I'll check oul Ihe tea party endorsement on the web address you provide. I'll need you to speak out on the record with your thoughts on the situation. Our standard practice
at the Daily Herald is someone in the election must raise the issue. I'm off today, but I'll be in Thursday, probably by 11 a.m., because of CLC candidates coming in at night.
Let me know the best time to reach you.

Bob

Bob,
I thought you might find this interesting.
FYI - Unfortunately, these board candidate have now become backed by a
political organization. I am shocked and appalled; your readers would be
too. Politics will be driving the education of our children.


All 3 candidates, Kip, Marcell, and Shannon are all endorsed on the LAKE
COUNTY TEA PARTY PAGE.

I think that all members of both Unions should be apprised of this information. The Tea Party is anti-union. There will be no
collective bargaining with those 3 on the board.

I am very afraid that Sue and I will not have the funds necessary to fight a "party".

Diane and Chris, you may want to talk to Jim to find out what he thinks. They are NOT going away.

Thanks for the tip, Mary.
So you weren't backed by anyone when you ran? And this is unusual (backing by a political party for one of the
school board positions), as far as you know? Do you think candidates should be backed for these positions? If so,
why, or if not, why?
Thanks again. I'm not sure yet whether I'll write anything, but this is at least making me look into whether the Tea
Party (or other parties, for that matter) are backing candidates elsewhere in the county.

I was going to call you last night - I was so annoyed by the shenanigans of MC and the district yesterday. Funny, the group running
on a ticket of transparency, ethics and accountability are probably the most conniving, secretive, deceitful crew in the whole bunch. I
have been pretty quiet over the last month when a few people asked about candidates - but I am feeling the need to be more vocal
and say who will be getting my vote and who will not be - and suggest people be very careful about their choices. Is that
inappropriate for a board member to state who they will be voting for?

How are you and Sue doing on campaigning? A neighbor said Kip was campaigning at a pancake breakfast a couple weeks back, and
"au candidate is calling people (I think it is Kip - and it is a Tea Party list). I am surprised and disappointed Ilow much tile Tea Party
is apparent at MV. I really do not care what people's political preferences are, but it scares me to death that our school district may
be where the Tea Party tries to make a statement. I am really afraid for our kids, the teachers, the administration .... All of it. Is it
just me?

Is our board eval on Sat? I copied you on my note to MC the other day - but not the subsequent reply to his response. I cannot
believe a board member can be so disruptive. And Joy Swoboda told me he is now visiting her district on his AFP/transparency
campaign. At times it is embarrassing - his actions reflect poorly on all of us.

MC has made it very clear who he supports. I certainly could not tell you what to say to people, but a child's education

Hi Megan,
Usually, school races are not political races. I did call the Democratic party, and they said that they do not endorse;
neither does the Republican party. The best board members are the ones who do not come with a platform, but are open
to listening and working with others for a common goal; the education of the child.
No, I have never been backed by any political organization. I do not even know of any who have.

Hi Mary,

I am so sorry it has taken me a few days to get back to you; things have been so hectic lately - I don't know
if I'm coming or gOing!

I apologize, but I think I may have misunderstood your offer of help. I actually don't have questions; I
thought perhaps you had ideas for me?! Here is what you wrote me: "Shannon, I just wanted to remind you
that I will help you with your election. I know that you will do a fine job as a board member and is the best
candidate for the position. Call me or email me if you want to chat. Mary".
When you said you would help me with my election, as I said, I thought that you may have ideas or
suggestions.
If you do, great! I'd love to hear them! But, I really don't have any questions at this time. If I come up with
some, I will contact you though.

Thanks for your offer!

As I said in my email yesterday:
"I think I may have misunderstood your offer of help. I actually don't have questions; I thought perhaps
you had ideas for me?! Here is what you wrote me: "Shannon, I just wanted to remind you that I will help
you with your election. I know that you will do a fine job as a board member and is the best candidate for
the position. Call me or email me if you want to chat. Mary".
When you said you would help me with my election, as I said, I thought that you may have ideas or
suggestions.
If you do, great! I'd love to hear them! But, I really don't have any questions at this time. If I come up with
some, I will contact you though."

I'd tried to call him again and couldn't reach him, with credit card number. Making list at bball game up to 16 and making a list of who to ask- up to
11!

You should sign up for concessions! A good way to talk to a lot of people, all at once.

Ok,
Do you have your signs ordered and your walking papers? I have a sign guy who is very reasonable.
Signs and posters go up 30 days before the election or they will be pulled. Hainseville is an exception.
I am not making a web page - I saw yours, very nice.
You can get voter's lists to make labels for mailings. I am not sure how much more money you want to spend. I have
never taken donations, so I am not sure how that is handled.

I'm not sure what you want me to say Mary, I didn't ask you for help. I've asked no one for help. You made
an offer of help and gave me your endorsement. I don't know how/if you've campaigned in the past, so I
had no idea what you were suggesting; I requested to talk with you to simply get clarification on your offer.

I have maintained my independence since I began being involved in any school business. I prefer to keep it
that way.

If you have concerns about one of the candidates running, perhaps you should speak with that candidate and
address that concern? I would hope that if someone has a concern with you, or with me, or with any
candidate, that they would address the candidate directly.

Again, I thank you for your offer to help although it won't be necessary.

As I sit here and do the targeting, the numbers do not make sense? Two questions:

1. Was there something going on in 2003 that would have caused greater turnout than 2007?

2. Are there areas in you school board where people have moved away? Specifially, the township of Avon.

Any insight would be helpful.

In 2003, not the school district's finest hour and a huge referendum on the ballot. I represented change. The
referendum went down bigl! Many didn't like the superintendent either.

I am not sure about those that moved away?

138 staff members live in within our district boundaries.

Hi Nancy,
Because this is a non-partition race, would you be able to get access to vote builder for us.
All 3 of the people, Shannon Smigileski, Kip Evans, Marchell Williams, that are running against me are endorsed by the Lake County Tea Party.
This is very scary - especially based on what is going on in Wisconsin. I am a teacher in Illinois.

We need access to vote builder because we need help to win this race.
Would you let me know either way so if I need to pay, I can do so.

Thank you,

Hi Mary,

I was out of the office on Friday.

The signs are in production. and I should have them for you next week.

Also. I left Sue a voice mail regarding payment.

Credit card payment is fine, and we can deal with that once I am ready to deliver the finished signs.

                     Dear Ellen,

                     American 15-year-olds rank 35th out of 57 countries in math and literacy, behind almost
                     all industrialized nations' America shouldn't be 35th in anything. It's time to restore
                     America's exceptional ism !

                     That's why Americans for Prosperity and the Great Awakening invites you to attend a
                     viewing of the highly acclaimed documentary "The Carter.

                     The Cartel shows us our educational system like we've never seen it before. Behind every
                     dropout factory, we discover, lurks a powerful, entrenched, and self-serving cartel. But The
                     Cartel doesn't just describe the problem. Balancing local story lines against interviews with
                     education experts such as Clint Bolick (former president of Alliance for School Choice),
                     Gerard Robinson (president of Black Alliance for Educational Options), and Chester Finn
                     (president of the Thomas B. Fordham Institute), The Cartel explores what dedicated
                     parents, committed teachers, clear-eyed officials, and tireless reformers are doing to make
                     our schools better for our kids.

                     This movie will force the scales to fall from the eyes of policymakers, education officials,
                     reformers, intellectuals, teachers, and taxpayers. Putting a human face on the harm done
                     by the educational cartel, The Cartel takes us beyond the statistics, generalizations, and
                     abstractions that typically frame our debates about education-and draws an unequivocal

                     immediate reform. And we must do it now.

I think you are becoming quite popular. ..... 1 have friends calling me and asking me if thats the beach lady ....
So what do you think is going on there. A little suspicious about the tweets. You know there are so many
people sending out information once they are accepted I'm not sure on how tweets work. I still live in the
stone ages, but how are the tea party members involved, and how did they get accepted as a tweet from the
candidates. Doesn't the tea party member have to be accepted by the tweeter as a friend ... Why would they
accept a member of the tea party if they have no part in it. Questionable?????

I was pretty sure that Diane did! I knew about the meeting.

No problem about the voter registration (I wished my life wasn't so chaotic, I'd have tried to get to North and Central
to register even more The last time I registered kids at Central I did 115, in one day! We could use that kind of vote
totals). Don't let them turn us in; gifts to register to vote is probably illegal! I did offer Erika more gift cards if she can
gather up more friends!

Talking this evening will probably be better for me.

I want to debrief about negotiations and my talk with Diane. SHE is the one who brought liD the TEACHER's covering

Hi Bob,
I read your article. Do you know what, Kip, retired teacher from Round Lake's involvement in the IEA was? Also, he
has a statement of that the "School Board needs to be accountable to the taxpayers." Are you aware of the percentage
increase in wages he received when he retired?

Just curious.

Because, the levy is automatic. You didn't have to ask for a tax increase. The means in which you ask for increase is through referendum. We can't
put referendum, because it is too technical. I checked it with Sue before I wrote it.

Mary,

Did you think that you and Alex could work on the postcards wording why I am gone? I could try and get them
printed when I get back. I thinking that if we have them on Sunday, we might be able to talk to those that show up
and ask them to mail some for us?

Sue




                                                                                               JARRATT FOIA - 176

I think that the letter is good. I don't think it is too strong. It sounds like a solid call to action. The changes I would make: 1. Move Sue's name to the
first paragraph. 2. I would get rid of the last paragraph, unless the point of this is a fund raising letter. I saw this letter as a base building and GOTV
type letter.
Once I have your comments and concerns, I will tell Shelly to make the changes.

The AFT letter, who is that from Sue or Mary? (As the lEA letter is from Mary with Sue's name in it) Once I know that, I will have shelly write that
one.


Also, very important. The election law is that you have to form a PAC once you have raised 1,000 dollars, NOT 3,000.

Just FYI

Apprently, the lake county Dems don't want to give votebuilder access to you, because of Mary's voting record. I sent an email back saying that
Mary was a straight ticket Dem who does not vote in primaries.

Now, I have been able to possiblly get it through a back door way from the state(using only Sue's name). However, that will cost 750$. Why?
Because, you will get county wide access even though you don't need it. I already aready have talked to them about lowering the pirce. They said
no. this is what I have been dealing with for the past three days.

Also, you will need to for a PAC to get votebuilder access. I would just do it; now that I know that the limit is 1,000 not 3,000 before you have to
form a PAC.

Mary, I need the email to log into facebook. I have your pasword choice, but no email. Unless the first thing you wrote down was an email, but it
had no "@.com" or anything on the end.

Let me know.

Mary,

I'll try to call you later, so we can talk about this whole votebuilder thing. I don't think that I can pay the $1,000 (or should?). When I get home, I can
call the county and see what kind of voting record we can get from them. I kind of bummed how this turned out (and the fact that is twice as
expensive as we though!?).

I saw the email from Shelley; what article was posted?

It is earlier there than here. I'll try and call you later this afternoon.

Sue

For the password I have tried:

These are the different emails and passwords I have gotten from both of you. Let me know, and I will get working on it.

I can do a new facebook page. I think we are going to have to screw votebuilder, and I am going to have to create a database with files from the
clerks office. I found out today that you have to form a PAC 30 days from the election which is today.

We have enought time. I wouldn't worry about that. I didn't know you wanted me to start the postcard. Have you heard from Shelly, I sent her my
comments about the letter. I am not sure where she is at with it.

Also, wait to print the the flyers unitl we can put the facebok address on it. I will start on a new one tomorrow morning.

Remember, you won last time doing nothing. Even without any further targeting. We can lit drop the top turnout precicnts. You will be fine.

 Hi Alex,
 When my husband gets in, I will have him call you. If nothing else, ditch the facebook page and start a new one. Is that a better option?

 Secondly, I was going to go out today but we had a partial snowstorm blizzard. I am going to purchase paper to run the handouts on.

 Thirdly, the whole votebuilder thing is driving me nuts. If Sue and I need to form a PAC, does it cost money. If not, then we will need to proceed.

 How does the postcard look?

 Talk to you soon, what day is good for you to meet? I am beginning to get anxious.
 The signs should be in next week.

 Thank you!

I can do a new face book page. I think we are going to have to screw votebuilder, and I am going to have to create a database with files from the
clerks office. I found out today that you have to form a PAC 30 days from the election which is today.

We have enought time. I wouldn't worry about that. I didn't know you wanted me to start the postcard. Have you heard from Shelly, I sent her my
comments about the letter. I am not sure where she is at with it.

Also, wait to print the the flyers unitl we can put the lacebok address on it. I will start on a new one tomorrow morning.

Remember, you won last time doing nothing. Even without any further targeting. We can lit drop the top turnout precicnts. You will be line.

 Hi Alex,
 When my husband gets in, I will have him call you. II nothing else, ditch the face book page and start a new one. Is that a better option?

 Secondly, I was going to go out today but we had a partial snowstorm blizzard. I am going to purchase paper to run the handouts on.

 Thirdly, the whole votebuilder thing is driving me nuts. II Sue and I need to lorm a PAC, does it cost money. II not, then we will need to proceed.

 How does the postcard look?

 Talk to you soon, what day is good for you to meet? I am beginning to get anxious.
 The signs should be in next week.

 Thank you!
 Mary

    I think that the letter is good. I don't think it is too strong. It sounds like a solid call to action. The changes I would make: 1. Move Sue's name
    to the first paragraph. 2. I would get rid 01 the last paragraph, unless the point of this is a fundraising letter. I saw this letter as a base building
    and GOTV type letter.
    Once I have your comments and concerns, I will tell Shelly to make the changes.

     The AFT letter, who is that from Sue or Mary? (As the lEA letter is from Mary with Sue's name in it) Once I know that, I will have shelly write
     that one.


     Also, very important. The election law is that you have to lorm a PAC once you have raised 1,000 dollars, NOT 3,000.

Thank you for the update .. I emailed Chris and let her know about the postcards but you may also want to touch base with her too ... she'll be at
the Finance meeting on Tuesday-- if you will be there ...

About the postcards-- I don't think we are going to be applying postage because then we will be giving you money right? one of my exec board
brought that up ... I never thought of that.. but anyway I think it will be just as effective or even more so if the members just give them personally to
their neighbors and then we won't be "spending any money on you"-- we would like to distribute them right before spring break if you have them
ready by then--take care, Diane E

 Diane,
 Thank you for meeting with me and for dinner. I will have the postcards to you as soon as we have them printed. Would you email Chris and
 inform her of the "postcard" discussion? I think it would show solidarity if both were participating. Being you will have them stamped, they would
 just need to be addressed.

  If you think it would be better for me to talk to Chris, that is fine too.

Well,

We don't have votebuilder. We cannot get votebuilder. So, I need files from the clerks office that Sue said she could get me. Or we won't have
walk lists. Plus, I am going to have to charge you more money to do this.

Facebook page: I started a new one, but used the email you share with your husband. I need the confirmation email foward to me to contiue on the
facebook page. I sent you both em ails yesterday.

You only can raise 999.99 dollars each, which means you really can't afford to pay me.

My suggestion, you pay 200 for what I have done. I will give you the targeting, and i will answer any questions you have for free over the phone
from now until the election.

This is how it is going.

You know what I really need right now? You to type your qualifications for me in detail so that I
can pass that around. I know BASICALLY but it needs to be more detailed so that I can email
it ... tell it ... etc. The lady at the library emailed her husband with my email and he is emailing it to
guys he knows and they are going to discuss it. I also want to touch base with Lynn around the
corner as she is a sub and I know she is adamant about the board members now.

Alex,

We are leaning towards just paying the $750 for Votebuilder. Mary does have one more avenue to explore tonight, so I'd like to wait until tomorrow
morning to pass on my credit card number.

Dave also wondered if you gave him the name and number for your contact with the Democratic party and let him try and call them? He is in
disbelief that they are unwilling to help us fight the tea party! He would like them to tell him that!

Sue,

There are multiple problems with that. You would have to form a pac, which you can't. Even if you could get it. If you pay 750 for votebuilder. It will
leave you no money. You only get to spend 999.99 for this election. Campaignn finance laws have changed.

Mary, the person I talked to does believe that you could form the pac after the election to raise the money to pay for stuff.

So, we can spend the money now. And report it after the election? You're right this is nuts!

We don't have to do anything like wait and pay for everything after the election do we?

If I am going to pay for stuff would it be better if I made a 'donation' to Mary and let her pay for half of everything with her 'donations'?

Sorry for all the questions, just trying to get a handle on all of this.

Thanks for your help,

 Anything you spend counts towards the 1999.99 that you and Mary would be allowed to spend. The only way around it, would be to lie and pay
 me cash. Then I could claim that I am volunteering for you.

 The phone for the lake county Dem's is on their website under contact us. I never got through to anyone via phone. Everything was through
 email.

 You can't form your statement of organization within 30 days of the election. You can check law on that, but I am pretty sure I am right. Sttement
 of oragization is the same as a political action committe. That is what every canddiate technically has.

 Honestly, it is Mary that was keeping you from getting votebuilder. It's not her fault, but you alone could have gotten it.

  I will do whatever you want, but I am quiet sure we are going to have to figure out the data and stuff with lists from the county clerks office.

wouldn't look at it like making a donation to mary. Anything you spend for the campaign counts towards your 999 dollar limit. If you can differ
payment until after the election that would be helpful. Give me a call tomorrow and I we can talk about it over the phone.

 We don't have to do anything like wait and pay for everything after the eler.tinn do we?

 If I am going to pay for stuff would it be better if I made a 'donation' to Mary and let her pay for half of everything with her 'donations'?

 Sorry for all the questions, just trying to get a handle on all of this.

 Thanks for your help,

 It does seem nuts. I think you can file the statement after the election to settle payments.

   Anything you spend counts towards the 1999.99 that you and Mary would be allowed to spend. The only way around it, would be to lie and
   pay me cash. Then I could claim that I am volunteering for you.

   The phone for the lake county Oem's is on their website under contact us. I never got through to anyone via phone. Everything was through
   email.

   You can't form your statement of organization within 30 days of the election. You can check law on that, but I am pretty sure I am right.
   Sttement of oragization is the same as a political action committe. That is what every canddiate technically has.

   Honestly, it is Mary that was keeping you from getting votebuilder. It's not her fault, but you alone could have gotten it.

   I will do whatever you want, but I am quiet sure we are going to have to figure out the data and stuff with lists from the county clerks office.

Ok, I reread your email, why can't we?

I think I would have to make donations to Mary and then she could use the money for half of the expenses, And I think mine could just be my
personal expenses? Not sure about all the details, but I could call Springfield in the morning.


And what about Dave calling the Lake County Democrats? Could you send the contact info and he'll try to call them in the morning, too.

Sue,

There are multiple problems with that. You would have to form a pac, which you can't. Even if you could get it. If you pay 750 for votebuilder.
It will leave you no money. You only get to spend 999.99 for this election. Campaignn finance laws have changed.

Mary, the person I talked to does believe that you could form the pac after the election to raise the money to pay for stuff.

 Alex,

 We are leaning towards just paying the $750 for Votebuilder. Mary does have one more avenue to explore tonight, so I'd like to wait until
 tomorrow morning to pass on my credit card number.

 Dave also wondered if you gave him the name and number for your contact with the Democratic party and let him try and call them? He is
 in disbelief that they are unwilling to help us fight the tea party! He would like them to tell him that!

 Well,

 We don't have votebuilder. We cannot get votebuilder. So, I need files from the clerks office that Sue said she could get me. Or we won't
 have walk lists. Plus, I am going to have to charge you more money to do this.

 Facebook page: I started a new one, but used the email you share with your husband. I need the confirmation email foward to me to
 contiue on the facebook page. I sent you both emails yesterday.

 You only can raise 999.99 dollars each, which means you really can't afford to pay me.

 My suggestion, you pay 200 for what I have done. I will give you the targeting, and i will answer any questions you have for free over the
 phone from now until the election.

 This is how it is going.

Subject: votebuilder access for my school board race

Dear Ms. Nancy Shepherdson,

I am Susan Facklam running for my 3 rd term for the school board in Community Consolidated School District
46 in Grayslake. In the past, these elections have remained non-partisan. This time however, the Lake
County Tea Party, has targeted my seat as well that of my fellow incumbent, Mary Garcia. Due to this, Mary
and I have looked to a campaign manager to help us win re-election. We met with Alex Finke to help us with
this. Alex has worked on several past campaigns (I don't think any were in Lake County, but they all were in
support of Democratic candidates in Cook and McHenry counties) and he suggested that we try an obtain
access to Votebuilder to help us target areas to concentrate our efforts.

It is my understanding that up to this point the access is being denied due to Mary's inconsistent voting record
in primary elections, in spite of the fact that my voting record tells a very different story. My husband and I
have been very strong and loyal supporters of the Democratic party, including strong support for Melissa Bean.
 The decision seems unfortunate and short-sighted, especially if it is important to the Democrat party to combat
the Tea Party gaining a stronghold in these very local elections. In my opinion, I believe that these elections
should be run as non-partisan, but that is seemingly no longer the case.

It is my understanding that the executive board on which you serve is meeting tonight, where this issue could
be brought up for discussion. I'd like to ask that you support us in this request.

In addition to serving on the school board, I have also been a voter registrar for many years. I have registered
many high school seniors at Grayslake Central High School. My name is also on the list to help candidates
with their voting registration efforts. I have also worked for many years as an election judge.

My seat on the school board is very important to me and I also serve on the SEDOL governing and executive
boards. I am hoping that you'll see the importance of this request and do what can be done to help.

Thank you, Susan Facklam

                  There is a new girl in Ms. Hymes class. Her name is Lizette R. I do not believe she still lives in Grayslake; she was staying with
                  my neighbor - the grandpa. She now gets dropped off at school and picked up at the stop by her mom. Is there a way to check
                  this out? They came here from California.

What do you think? Sue


Dear Shannon,

I wanted to give you a little background, the candidate forums that I have been involved with and have attended,
were organized by the League of Women Voters (it is my understanding that they no longer are involved in this, but I
haven't checked so I am not positive). In the case of the one that I was involved with, it was run by a teacher at
Grayslake Central and his AP Political Science students. They students collected the questions from the audience,
organized them, asked the questions and kept track of the time limit. To my knowledge they have done this on more
than one occasion.

I don't believe that the district should be involved in this process. If an independent group or group of individuals
came forward, the possibility of a candidate forum could be further explored. If this were to be explored further, it
would be essential that we would all be asked and we would all answer the same questions.

Sue

Subject: Candidate Forum

Good Morning,

My name is Shannon Smigielski. I am one of five candidates in the upcoming election (April 5, 2011),
seeking a 4yr term as a D46 School Board Member.

This week, I was present at a PTO meeting that Superintendent Ellen Correll attended. At this meeting, she
encouraged people to not only get out and vote on April 5th, but to become educated voters as well.

Later in this week, Sarah Waters (PTO President - Frederick) and I spoke regarding some issues facing the
district and wanting to feel comfortable with the decision each of us face. (Sarah - I hope you don't mind me
sharing that?!).

I too am a registered voter. As a parent of two children in this district, a homeowner, and active participant in
the schools, I need to make the best decisions for my children, family, and community. I feel compelled to
ask questions and get to know each candidate too!

In January of this year, I requested that one of the Community Forums (the one scheduled for 3-23-11) be
used as a Candidate Forum: a "Get-to-know-the-candidate" meeting. After all, by its very definition, a forum
is: A public meeting place for open discussion.

Unfortunately, my request was denied. In a Triblocal article dated January 24, 2011, Board President Garcia
stated: "If the board forum is rescheduled, it will not be a candidate forum, Garcia said. The board and
District 46 administration can't schedule a candidate forum".




                                                                                                    JARRATT FOIA - 237
This brings me to all of you - the PTO! I know in years past when the district has had elections that were
contested, the PTO's sponsored/held Candidate Forums. I would like to ask about the possibility of a forum
including all 5 candidates for the elections coming up. There are many issues, concerns, facts, untruths, and
unknowns, for all of us. I'd welcome the opportunity to address any of my own concerns and/or the
communities as well.

I am open to keeping this a very casual, friendly, and inviting forum. Perhaps a table for each candidate so
that individuals can ask their own questions and talk freely?
Of course, the format would be up to you, I just wanted to share my hopes that this campaign/election will
remain friendly, honest, ethical, and we all remember why we are wanting to be part of the School Board:
For the kids!

We are running out of time with spring break right around the corner, so hopefully there is still enough time
to pull something together.

I really appreciate your consideration and look forward to hearing back from you.


Regards,




Shannon N. Smigielski

Hi Mary,

The signs and ground stakes are en route to us from our supplier in Kansas ..

It looks like I will not have them here until tomorrow.

Once they are here, I can deliver them directly to Sue in Grayslake.

Please give me an address and telephone number, and I will call when I have them in hand and arrange the delivery .. I will personally take them wherever they need to gol

Thanks,

Kerry Erlich

Let's step back from this, take a deep breath and talk about it tomorrow.

If you could find out from Amanda if she thinks that the PV PTO, would be totally fair and unbiased that would help?

Actually questions from the audience guards against them being prepared in advanced. Unless the place is packed
with their supporters? Maybe you could ask Catherine's what she thinks, too? She probably remembers all too well
about what happened last fall at Central. (She'll probably be at the superintendent thing, right?)

Sue,
I do not want questions from the audience. The suggestion I have is for them to write all questions down on post cards.
Then the cards are sifted through. Only appropriate questions are asked.

Mary,

As you can imagine, I have hardly slept, can't turn my mind off!

I emailed Sarah Watters to see if she had a suggestion. One suggestion that she had, was that we insist on
changing the location to Frederick. That way she could get involved and do what she could to ensure its fairness?
(She couldn't help on the 24th, but we can't do that day either. Board self-evaluation.)

For right now, I am going to do nothing (I know will have to respond sometime!) I am hopeful that Ellen will talk to
Amanda and Catherine Finger. I am going to try and get ahold of Jason Janczak, too.

Sue

Mary,

I am still dragging my feet because I am hoping that my friends on the district-wide PTO/PTF will be able to become
more involved. And I won't have to worry about this as much. But I did send this response this morning.

I think that it is interesting of the dates suggested, the one that they are considering is when we have a board
meeting. I am wondering if our board meeting has been posted?

Hello, Donna and I are on the PTO Board at Prairieview. As has been discussed, the
PTO would like to host a forum for the community to meet the district 46 board candidates
and listen to your views on the direction of our district. Tentatively, this forum could be held
on Thursday, March 24th from 7:00 - 9:00 pm in the multi-purpose room at Prairieview. We
are in touch with the Lake County League of Women Voters to moderate this forum, although
we have not yet secured their services. We envision this forum to be a time for you each of
you to express your vision for the district and take questions from the community (likely
submitted at the beginning of the forum, not taken directly or off the cuff).

As our timeline is short, we would like to get a firm commitment from each of you as to your
participation as soon as possible so that we may coordinate with the other schools. Please
respond and let us know if the date, time, and location are acceptable to you. If you have a
conflict, please offer an alternative date. If the location concerns you, please let us know
what those concerns are. We are looking into other possible locations but do not yet have a

Now what? Is a public apology in order? It was a gathering to allow a venue where we could invited people to come
and meet Mary and I (it was in NO way advertised as a 'candidate forum'). The campaign manager that we have
gotten advice from merely suggested this a way to get our message out. We provided free pizza and pop (which I
paid for!).

In 20/20 hindsight I shouldn't have ask a friend (from the middle school and Frederick PTO) to push out the email
invitation, but I know many people and it would have been hard for me to do this without involving someone
associated with the school (She obviously, used the email addresses of the PTO/PTF officers.)

There was one instance, where Karen came up during a conversation that Mary and I were having, but she stepped
away almost immediately. I would have to ask Karen but this was the ONLY instance when Karen was involved in
either of the conversations that I can remember.

Only 2 people came that weren't already our supporters or friends. (My whole family was there as was Mary's.) I
pretty much talked to both of them individually; Mary did at one point join the conversation from the Dad that had kids
at PV briefly. Mary and I both spoke with the Dad from MV individually.

Karen did run the whole thing for us and was working!

Even before Shannon sent this, I was going to ask that we talk to Kevin. I know that it is difficult especially after the
fact. I am very sorry for any undue stress that I have added to the district.

I do not feel that I have said ANYTHING slanderous as she suggests. I have been very concerned about the
financial support they might be getting. Shannon may not be accepting any financial backing; I am pretty certain that
this is not the case for Kip and Marchell. She HAS been endorsed by the Tea Party as have both Kip and Marchell.
(I haven't looked at the website recently to see if the endorsement has been rescinded.)

Subject: Forum

I received a phone call and subsequent email last night regarding a forum that had just taken place.
While I recognize that every candidate has a right to hold a forum for campaign purposes, I was under the
impression, based on Mary's comments, that the incumbents were unable to schedule one. (From the
Triblocal: " Garcia said. The board and District 46 administration can't schedule a candidate forum" .).

I then found out that the two of you, the President and Vice President of the School Board, the
incumbents, not only scheduled a forum, but then solicited (directly or indirectly) and used the PTO from one
school to send out notification of this forum. (*See below email forwarded to me as proof of the
communications sent out by the PTO).

If a PTO was used to notify parents/taxpayers/staff in the community, then why weren't all of the candidates
informed or invited to partiCipate? Had the PTO not been used to do this, I would have no complaint. But
they were, and they were used to further the agenda of only two candidates.




                                                                                                            JARRATT FOIA - 268
"There is nothing that prohibits the school from allowing the PTa to host a candidate forum. The event should not
serve to endorse or oppose any particular candidate, and should be open to a" candidates. I would suggest that
the District, if it allows the forum, explicitly state to the PTa and candidates that the District is opening this particular
school property for the forum only and not for any other campaign related activity.

I was also informed that 3 board members were present at this forum: Sue Facklam, Mary Garcia, and Karen
Weinert. I was told that Karen was working, but frequently participated in talking with the incumbents &
constituents about current school issues and business. This is a direct violation of the Open Meeting Act.

Furthermore, a candidate forum sponsored by the PTO, inviting all of the candidates to participate is in the
process of being scheduled and each of you are not only aware of it, but have been included in those
decisions. The PTO's have been very specific in asking that all candidates refrain from displaying or handing
out campaign materials when the event is sponsored by them. And still, I hold in my hand, a copy of your
campaign material handed out during your forum that was advertised by the PTO.

Almost as disturbing and unethical as the improper handling of this forum that was scheduled, is the
continued slanderous use of my good name. Both of you have embarked on a campaign of spreading lies. I
am not and have not ever been a member or activist of any Tea Party. I am not sponsored by, endorsed
by, nor have I participated in, soliciting or receiving funds or aid of any kind from ANY political affiliation.
Provide irrefutable proof that I am or have been an activist or member of any Tea Party or immediately cease
and desist in telling people or insinuating that I am.
A reminder of the legal definition of Slander/Defamation of Character:

Any intentional false communication, either written or spoken, that harms a person's reputation; decreases
the respect, regard, or confidence in which a person is held; or induces disparaging, hostile, or disagreeable
opinions or feelings against a person.



As a parent, taxpayer, and regular participant in school functions, I am utterly disappointed by the gross
abuse of power that Sue and Mary are using to further their own agenda. This is a school board election!
This is not about smearing people, lying, or running secret agendas. My family, my neighbor's family's and
everyone in the community, deserve far better than the representation you two are giving right now.



I am faced with having to decide how to proceed with the information that I have received. I resent having
to be put into this position. The two of you continue to make choices with little regard for the impact of its
consequences. Do you fail to understand that our district has a reputation for nepotism and unethical
practices? If I gave this information to the press, do you not see that yet again, Grayslake D46 would
receive negative publicity? Who do you think suffers the greatest impact from the negative press? THE
COMMUNITY! The parents, the homeowners, the taxpayers. Without question the impact then trickles down
to the children. If you do not see and understand this, you have no business being involved in the schools.



If I contacted IASB, or the ROE, or the State Attorney's Office, and they determine that at the very least, you
have violated a code of conduct or ethics, who do you think suffers the greatest impact? Did it occur to
either of you that in using the PTO to further your own agenda, you were putting them in a terrible position?




                                                                                                        JARRATT FOIA - 269
I do not wish to hurt, embarrass, or fracture this district and community. I will not further my own agenda
as a candidate, at the expense of others.

At this time, I will not notify the press or seek government intervention in regards to your conduct. This is
only done to spare the PTO and community from the fall out caused by your actions. You should also know
that I am quite certain that I am not the only community member who received this information. How anyone
else decides to use this information is up to them.



However, as far as I am concerned, consider this notice: if you continue to abuse your current positions to
further your own agenda, violate the open meeting act, or put this district in a position where your actions
will have a direct and negative impact on the people in it, I will not hesitate in pursuing action.



Shame on you.

No. I admit, we do not pick up calls we do not recognize the number, and last night we had some hang ups and "private callers".
I have not checked my email today - but did last night and did not have anything.

BTW.... 25 postcards are in mail today! We have 40 more that we will address and send this week. We need another 20 for sure,
maybe 30 if you could bring to meeting.

Also, not sure the rules on signs - but if you all have extra and want to put one more in our yard so it is parallel to house (rather than
perpendicular), we will tilke ilnnther. Our hOLise is at the top of a 'T' where they face part of our house (really more of our
neighbors) and have to tum right or left. Figured another angle would be good. If we can, we will see if a neighbor will take a sign.

So, what did Shannon's email say?

Thanks!
Colleen

Received a scathing email from Shannon. Did she call you last night to discuss the meet and greet?

I am pretty sure that it came from the wife of the guy that we talked to from MV. Interestingly enough, the MV email
was the one that was attached to her email.

This is ridiculous. Who was there that would have contacted her anyway. I have never smeared her good name. The
email invitation came from a friend of Sue's not the district. We did not discuss board business. I do not think that
Colleen would have called Shannon, do you?

Now what? Is a public apology in order? It was a gathering to allow a venue where we could invited people to come
and meet Mary and I (it was in NO way advertised as a 'candidate forum'). The campaign manager that we have
gotten advice from merely suggested this a way to get our message out. We provided free pizza and pop (which I
paid for!).

In 20/20 hindsight I shouldn't have ask a friend (from the middle school and Frederick PTO) to push out the email
invitation, but I know many people and it would have been hard for me to do this without involving someone
associated with the school (She obviously, used the email addresses of the PTOIPTF officers.)

There was one instance, where Karen came up during a conversation that Mary and I were having, but she stepped
away almost immediately. I would have to ask Karen but this was the ONLY instance when Karen was involved in
either of the conversations that I can remember.

Only 2 people came that weren't already our supporters or friends. (My whole family was there as was Mary's.) I
pretty much talked to both of them individually; Mary did at one point join the conversation from the Dad that had kids
at PV briefly. Mary and I both spoke with the Dad from MV individually.

Karen did run the whole thing for us and was working!

Even before Shannon sent this, I was going to ask that we talk to Kevin. I know that it is difficult especially after the
fact. I am very sorry for any undue stress that I have added to the district.

I do not feel that I have said ANYTHING slanderous as she suggests. I have been very concerned about the
financial support they might be getting. Shannon may not be accepting any financial backing; I am pretty certain that
this is not the case for Kip and Marchell. She HAS been endorsed by the Tea Party as have both Kip and Marchell.
(I haven't looked at the website recently to see if the endorsement has been rescinded.)

Subject: Forum

I received a phone call and subsequent email last night regarding a forum that had just taken place.
While I recognize that every candidate has a right to hold a forum for campaign purposes, I was under the
impression, based on Mary's comments, that the incumbents were unable to schedule one. (From the
Triblocal: " Garcia said. The board and District 46 administration can't schedule a candidate forum".).

I then found out that the two of you, the President and Vice President of the School Board, the
incumbents, not only scheduled a forum, but then solicited (directly or indirectly) and
used the PTO from one school to send out notification of this forum. (*See below email forwarded to me as
proof of the communications sent out by the PTO).

If a PTO was used to notify parents/taxpayers/staff in the community, then why weren't all of the candidates
informed or invited to participate? Had the PTO not been used to do this, I would have no complaint. But
they were, and they were used to further the agenda of only two candidates.
"There is nothing that prohibits the school from allowing the PTO to host a candidate forum. The event should not
serve to endorse or oppose any particular candidate, and should be open to all candidates. I would suggest that
the District, if it allows the forum, explicitly state to the PTO and candidates that the District is opening this particular
school property for the forum only and not for any other campaign related activity.

I was also informed that 3 board members were present at this forum: Sue Facklam, Mary Garcia, and Karen
Weinert. I was told that Karen was working, but frequently participated in talking with the incumbents &
constituents about current school issues and business. This is a direct violation of the Open Meeting Act.

Furthermore, a candidate forum sponsored by the PTO, inviting gll of the candidates to participate is in the
process of being scheduled and each of you are not only aware of it, but have been included in those
decisions. The PTO's have been very specific in asking that all candidates refrain from displaying or handing
out campaign materials when the event is sponsored by them. And still, I hold in my hand, a copy of your
campaign material handed out during your forum that was advertised by the PTO.

Almost as disturbing and unethical as the improper handling of this forum that was scheduled, is the
continued slanderous use of my good name. Both of you have embarked on a campaign of spreading lies. I
am not and have not ever been a member or activist of any Tea Party. I am not sponsored by, endorsed
by, nor have I participated in, soliciting or receiving funds or aid of any kind from ANY political affiliation.
Provide irrefutable proof that I am or have been an activist or member of any Tea Party or immediately cease
and desist in telling people or insinuating that I am.
A reminder of the legal definition of Slander/Defamation of Character:

Any intentional false communication, either written or spoken, that harms a person's reputation; decreases
the respect, regard, or confidence in which a person is held; or induces disparaging, hostile, or disagreeable
opinions or feelings against a person.



As a parent, taxpayer, and regular participant in school functions, I am utterly disappointed by the gross
abuse of power that Sue and Mary are using to further their own agenda. This is a school board election!
This is not about smearing people, lying, or running secret agendas. My family, my neighbor's family's and
everyone in the community, deserve far better than the representation you two are giving right now.




                                                                                                           JARRATT FOIA - 279
I am faced with having to decide how to proceed with the information that I have received. I resent having
to be put into this position. The two of you continue to make choices with little regard for the impact of its
consequences. Do you fail to understand that our district has a reputation for nepotism and unethical
practices? If I gave this information to the press, do you not see that yet again, Grayslake D46 would
receive negative publicity? Who do you think suffers the greatest impact from the negative press? THE
COMMUNITY! The parents, the homeowners, the taxpayers. Without question the impact then trickles down
to the children. If you do not see and understand this, you have no business being involved in the schools.



If I contacted lASS, or the ROE, or the State Attorney's Office, and they determine that at the very least, you
have violated a code of conduct or ethics, who do you think suffers the greatest impact? Did it occur to
either of you that in using the PTO to further your own agenda, you were putting them in a terrible position?



I do not wish to hurt, embarrass, or fracture this district and community. I will not further my own agenda
as a candidate, at the expense of others.

At this time, I will not notify the press or seek government intervention in regards to your conduct. This is
only done to spare the PTO and community from the fallout caused by your actions. You should also know
that I am quite certain that I am not the only community member who received this information. How anyone
else decides to use this information is up to them.



However, as far as I am concerned, consider this notice: if you continue to abuse your current positions to
further your own agenda, violate the open meeting act, or put this district in a position where your actions
will have a direct and negative impact on the people in it, I will not hesitate in pursuing action.



Shame on you.
