From the Lincolnwood Review:

As winter’s first major storm raged outdoors, a storm of anger inside Lincolnwood Village Hall Thursday as more than a dozen residents accused School District 74 board members and administrators of egregious spending and financial mismanagement of taxpayer dollars.

A standing room-only crowd of about 100 braved the snow for the school board’s monthly meeting where officials heard the public’s concerns over district expenditures for personal cell phones, car repairs, meals, and multiple out-of-state conferences, including one in Disney World.
