In March, I read a Chicago Tribune article about the shortage of local school council candidates. Thinking I might run for community representative, I called two nearby high schools to see in which attendance area I lived. At the first school, I was referred to an office worker who cut me off saying, "The election is April 22."
I explained that I just wanted to determine if I was in the school's attendance area. "Why do you want to know? Who is this?"
