Laurie Donahue is a challenger, local business executive, director of a local community bank and chair of Naperville’s Sister City Commission.

NACPAC offered the following statement of endorsement for Donahue:

“Laurie Donahue has had a successful private-sector career managing large budgets, product development and teams of employees. With an undergraduate degree in engineering and an MBA, she isn’t the typical candidate for school board.

“Donahue’s experience as an executive in a technical field will help guide the District’s substantial investment in science, technology, engineering and math curricula. She also believes the District could do a better job preparing and encouraging students to pursue technical and vocational careers.

“Donahue’s experience as an engineer, executive, negotiator and budgeter make her an excellent fit for the Board of Education. Donahue is endorsed.”
