GENEVA – Incumbents Mark Grosso and William Wilson, along with newcomers David Lamb and former board member Leslie Juby, all won seats Tuesday to serve a four-year term on the Geneva School District 304 Board, according to unofficial election results.

Grosso, board president, received 2,444 votes; Lamb received 1,907 votes; Juby received 1,605 votes; and Wilson received 1,509 votes.

Robert Cabeen, Fred Dresser, Jeff DiOrio and Daniel Garrett also ran for the four-year terms.

Juby, who had previously served on the board, has said her priorities include implementing common core standards, reducing the district's $300 million debt and improving communication between the school district and the community.

Grosso has said that his priorities this election season included reducing the district's debt, balancing budget constraints with educational requirements, and reducing the district's operating expenses.

Wilson has stated his focus if elected would be on the areas of taxes, spending and academics, and making sure each of those three areas is sustainable.

Lamb's platform centered on reducing the district's overall debt, communicating better with parents of young students about available educational opportunities and setting more specific, measurable goals, such as ACT test scores, to improve academic expectations.
