A Note from Tom Nemickas

To the Lake Forest, Lake Bluff, and Knollwood Voters,

I wanted to reach out and clarify a few details about the comments that have been made against me, attacking my integrity and character.

On March 19th, I first became aware of a contract that exists between the IBJI Rehab Division and LFHS District 115. As I have stated before, I was unaware of the contract until that date, as is did not involve my Division, nor was I involved in any way. I am a partner in IBJI, and I receive no direct material benefit from it.

I have reached out to counsel to understand whether there is any conflict. I have been assured that no conflict exists that prevents me from running and being elected. When elected, I will ensure that there is no conflict between School District 115, myself, or my employer.

Aside from giving a statement to the press, I have not been vocal on the subject as I have been careful to make sure I have all the facts correct and choose the clearest and best path forward. Please take this as an example of the kind of School Board Member that I aspire to be for the community. I pride myself on my thorough approach to decisions, my integrity and my character. I would never mislead the public nor make a rush to judgment.

To all the people who have reached out in support of myself and my family during this difficult time, THANK YOU!


Dr. Tom Nemickas
