WATCH: "220 IN LESS THAN 2" EPISODE 7

Spring is almost here and we are now one month away from the April 2, 2019 election.


In my March episode of "220 in less than 2", I discuss some interesting facts about the $185 million school district referendum question on the ballot. In order to inform the entire Barrington 220 community about the measure, the Board of Education is holding two more information sessions. All community members are encouraged to attend and ask questions. The agenda at all meetings will be the same, a short presentation and opportunities for Q&A.


  • Monday, March 4: 9:30am at BMS-Prairie (40 East Dundee Road, Barrington)

  • Wednesday, March 6: 7pm at BMS-Station (215 South Eastern Avenue, Barrington)

Referendum Facebook Live!

In addition, there will also be two Referendum Facebook Live! sessions, where you can ask questions and learn the facts about the referendum, from the comforts of your own home or office.


  • Thursday, March 7: 2pm-3pm (A discussion with myself and Board of Education member Angela Wilcox)


  • Tuesday, March 12: 7pm-8pm (A discussion with Board of Education President Brian Battle and Vice President Penny Kazmier)


To join a session head to www.facebook.com/barrington220 at the designated time slots.
