Without hesitation and with pleasure we strongly endorse and support Rich Regan for a District 96 school board seat. Rich and his wife, Amy, have been Riverside residents for almost 15 years and have three children who are in and have gone through D96 schools. 

He has coached on many teams for his kids and has volunteered in community events and organizations. His interest in getting to know more about the education provided by D96 is not something new. 

It’s something that was evident to us when we first met him before his oldest child was even in school yet. His qualifications for this position are exceptional. His broad business background includes, but is not limited to, operations, managing people, contract negotiations and vendor management. 

These are just a few areas of many with proven results to back it in which he can provide to strengthen the D96 board. He is a quiet leader who leads by example and backs up his words and ideas with action and results. 

Rich is a grounded person whose genuine thoughtfulness, approachability, keen insight on issues and proven problem solving make him an excellent choice for the board spot. 

We wholeheartedly support his candidacy and ask residents and parents in our community to support him as well.

Bill and Erin Durkin
