Dannhausen-Brun deserves seat at the D181 board table

As a long time resident of Hinsdale since 2001 and having two sons (including a current eighth-grader at Hinsdale Middle School) attend D181 public schools (Madison Elementary and HMS), I have a deep love and respect for one of the finest school districts in Illinois. D181 was the major reason why we moved to Hinsdale in 2001 from Chicago.

Therefore, the April 2021 D181 Board of Education election will be crucial given the difficulties and unexpected challenges to education created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

I wholeheartedly endorse Christine Dannhausen-Brun for the D181 Board of Education. She is a longtime resident of Hinsdale with children attending D181 schools for the past 18 years. She has tremendous experience in public health and currently serves on the D181 ad hoc Health Committee, advising D181 administration on COVID-19. She has experience in school governance having served on the board of Queen of Peace High School, including one year as board president. She has volunteer experience in D181 PTO committees. She consistently demonstrates a passion for the well being and success of students in D181.

She has the vision, expertise and empathy to guide D181 as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic and navigate the numerous challenges D181 will face.

Christine Dannhausen-Brun has my complete support for the D181 Board of Education. — Albert Lin, MD, Hinsdale
