Anthony Calderone, mayor of Forest Park, announced Tuesday in an e-mail to the Forest Park Review, that he is backing the Proviso Together slate in next week's election. 

"Simply during my entire mayorship I have desired the best possible education for the children of Forest Park. Beginning two years ago, there is renewed interest in moving our public high school in a best direction. This is continuing this election season. I support the Proviso Together team," wrote Calderone.

The Proviso Together effort began two years ago in Forest Park and resulted in the election of two Forest Park residents, Claudia Medina and Ned Wagner, to the District 209 school board.

In the current election, a slate of four challengers has been put forward by Proviso Together. They are opposed by three incumbent board members and a newcomer running as the Proviso First slate.

Question about Proviso Township Trustees of Schools, Township 39N, Range 12E... Just what exactly is it and what does it do/govern? Where is it? Is there a salary? I have tried to research it and can't find much info about it. Forgive me if the question isn't totally relevant to the article, but I would really love someone to explain this to me (and I don't think I am the only one, lol). Thanks.

It is reassuring to know there are some basic issues which unite us all as Forest Parkers. Thank you, Mr. Mayor.
