The Beecher Board of Education has invited four representatives to a one hour informational Q&A session specifically addressing South Suburban Airport and the proposed Illiana Toll Road. This meeting is scheduled to take place in the Beecher High School Library on Wednesday, October 15, 2014 beginning at 6 pm. We will take the first half hour for board member questions and concerns, and the second half hour will be a structured Q&A session open to the general public. We will conclude at approximately 7:00 pm allowing the board to convene into their regular board meeting. The following representatives have been invited; Senator Toi Hutchinson, Senator Donne Trotter, Representative Katherine Cloonen, and Representative Elgie Sims. The Beecher School District does not support, contribute, or advocate a specific political affiliation. The premise behind this invitation is to discuss loss of tax revenue and potential noise management only. If you have other political issues, please contact your representative individually.
