At the District 155 high school board candidates’ night six years ago, I talked to now-board president Adam Guss.
His wife teaches art at Cary-Grove High School.
I told him I knew it was legal for board members to vote on their spouses salaries, but I considered that a conflict of interest.
Guss told me he would not be involved in salary negotiations.
Nevertheless, he was involved and voted for the new contract this spring.
