Candidate debate
Sunday, March 14, 2021
Virtual on Zoom


Watch and hear the candidates together for easy comparison at our virtual, nonpartisan Candidate Forum Sunday, March 14, 2:00 pm on Zoom. The League has invited all certified candidates for both hotly contested Board of Education races: Lake Forest High School District 115 and Lake Forest School District 67. With so many candidates to choose from, you will want to learn about all of them. Registration for the forum is required, after which you will receive a Zoom webinar link. You can submit a question for the candidates when you register.

The Forum will start at 2:00 pm with the LFHS District 115 candidates. There are eight (8) running for four (4) openings on the High School Board of Education: David Burns, Sally L. Davis, Jeff Giannelli, Amy Marsch, Joanna Marshall, Robert Ted Moorman, Marcus Schabacker, and John Venson. 

At 3:20 pm the second set of candidates will square off. All six (6) candidates running for four (4) seats for Lake Forest District 67 have been invited. The candidates are Emily Bernahl, Taylor Cottam, Lori Fitzgerald, Anne Geraghty Helms, Carl Kirar, and Alice LeVert.

In case watching the forum on Zoom is inconvenient, the forum will be recorded with the video available for watching on our website a few days later.


Early voting at Lake Forest City Hall starts on March 22. Or you can request a Ballot by Mail now at Ballots will be mailed starting March 12.
