School Board's Loss

To the editors:

I have been active in the Lincoln Park community for 20 years and have known Steve Ballis (Neighborhood News, June 11) for most of that time. I have never met a more dedicated community leader. Steve's commitment to our community, especially its schools, was unsurpassed.

The school board will be losing a hardworking, dedicated member. I only hope I can convince Steve to work on our project for a new library branch and help us continue the school improvement work he started in our community.
