    Bruno is married to a D41 teacher, just like Kurt Buchholz.

    He makes smart investments, like that mint condition classic Ipod with the Wolfson DAC. It will only increase in value.
    He will bring that smart decision making to D41.

    Coincidentally, my claim to fame is speaking truth to power.

    Bruno's wife was the person behind manipulating schoolchildren into doing the Union's bidding during the "wallflower" drama in which the school board was professionally setup.

    Not coincidentally, the children's position then is found in Bruno's platform now and the militant head of the Chicago Teacher's Union Karen Lewis's position - remove oversight and give control of the classroom to the union.

    Granting the union a dedicated seat on our school board will simply continue the use of Glen Ellyn children as union prop and stooge, and again more media manipulation as further and probably more advanced professional traps are set and sprung.

    D41 has more pressing needs than being consumed as union cannon fodder for the next four years.

    Are you implying that Kurt, Stephanie and the other four are looking to break up the Glen Ellyn Education Association?

    That's a joke, right?

    The union has enormous real power, legal privilege and political cover. They can and do break laws with impunity, dictate policy and control most every aspect of D41.

    The thing here, with Bruno, is just political greed - nothing more than power doing what it does best, exert itself relentlessly and drive out oversight, checks and balances.

    Bruno's not in this for the children, the sea of Union money, manpower, marketing and endorsement should tell you that. Bruno didn't get an endorsement (the first ever for a school board election) alongside Cicero's, Berwyn's and Franklin Park's mayor because the Cook County unions suddenly took an interest in schoolchildren...

    So .... Kurt and Stephanie have no real power. Why even have a BOE?

    I bet we can save some money not paying big bucks to the BOE.

    You are a great representative of what a Bruno board membership would offer.

    FYI: School Board members by Illinois statute can not be paid.
