West Suburban Patriots

an independent Tea Party group in DuPage County, IL

After last months' talk about needing people to step up and run for office, I decided to throw my hat in the ring for school board.   As a long time member of West suburban Patriots, I wanted to let my fellow patriots know what is happening.  I am not asking for the group's endorsement - simply providing information, especially to the many members who live in this school district.

 I am now one of nine candidates running for the four school board seats in Wheaton-Warrenville CUSD200.  The election will be on 4/9/2013.  I made some comments at the December school board meeting during public comment,  saying that we cannot afford to build a new preschool that is significantly bigger than the existing one.  MyFoxChicago along with some special interest groups have picked up on it and are now demonizing me for being insensitive.  Please, take look, add comments if you are so moved,  If you would like to discuss the issues with me, my email for campaign purposes is janshaw200@yahoo.com
