Consolidated School District 158 Board President Michael Skala has announced his candidacy for the McHenry County Board in District 5.

Skala, a lifelong resident of the county and a local business owner, has served on the District 158 Board of Education for 14 years, seven of those as board president. He has also chaired the board’s finance, human resources, legislative and building and grounds committees.

“I believe the skills I utilized in helping District 158 become the high achieving district it is today can also be used to help keep McHenry County a desirable and affordable place to live, work and raise a family,” Skala said in a press release.
