Hawker loses close D65 race

Voters in Evanston/Skokie School District 65 filled four slots on the board from five candidates.

The loser in the game of musical chairs was Christopher Hawker, a teacher in the Niles Township High School system, who won just under 18 percent of the vote.

The leading candidate in the race was Tracy Quattrocki, a parent activist at Dewey School, who waged an active campaign with an unusually large number of yard signs. She garnered nearly 26 percent of the votes.

The three other winning candidates in the race were closely packed — with newcomer Kim Weaver coming in slightly ahead of incumbents Andrew Pigozzi and Jerome Summers. They each had a little under 19 percent of the votes cast.

The four candidates for the Evanston Township High School board coasted to election with no opposition.
