Candidates discuss what’s great in District 161, how to move forward

Seven of nine candidates running for the Flossmoor School District 161 board of education Thursday responded to questions at a well-attended political forum.

In all, the candidates answered nine questions submitted by audience members in the Parker Junior High School gymnasium. The 90-minute forum was sponsored by the Homewood-Flossmoor League of Women Voters.

Candidates included Misha Lynn Blackman, LaCael Palmer Pratt, Stephen Paredes, Carolyn Griggs, Isaac D. Harris, Cameron Nelson and Jadey Ryndak. Melissa Stilts and Kelli Bentley, who are also on the April 4 election ballot, did not attend the forum . . .
