“The perception of the district, and the circumstances with which our children enter the classroom have declined for decades. Rightly or wrongly, the conversation about District 150 at the dinner table and on social media has centered on its failures,” Adler says.
Adler works for Caterpillar and ran as a Peoria city council candidate last year. Sue Wolstenholm was elected to the seat this spring, but she plans to resign soon. That means the District 150 School Board will have 45 days to choose someone else to fill the seat. Adler says he plans to run again next spring for the seat whether or not he is seated this summer.
