Omar Brown is running for his first full term on the Evanston/Skokie District 65 school board after being appointed to fill a vacancy on the board last year.
Brown, who cancelled a scheduled video interview with Evanston Now about his candidacy, says he wants to provide a voice for all children, regardless of their socio-economic status.
Brown, of 203 Ridge Ave., grew up in Evanston and is vice president of human resources for the Chicago Transit Authority.
He and his wife Tanya have three children who attend Evanston schools. He holds a master’s degree in public policy and administration from Northwestern University, an MBA from Loyola University and a bachelor’s degree in political science from Northeastern Illinois University.
