Lake County News-Sun April 6, 2011
Two new College of Lake County trustees will bring backgrounds in financial planning and law to the board.

Lynda Paul, 46, of Gurnee and Jeanne Goshgarian, 63, of unincorporated Round Lake won the election, according to unofficial returns.

Paul and Goshgarian each took about 26 percent of a total of 72,858 votes.

Incumbent board member Philip Carrigan, 66, of Waukegan; Rich Voltair, 33, of Round Lake Beach; and Chelsea Schopper, 32 of unincorporated Ingleside, were also on the ballot.

“I think going forward, the College of Lake County is going to need a courageous, competent leader — someone who’s not afraid to make financial decisions and someone to keep CLC an affordable place,” Paul said. “I’m extremely excited to make sure there is financial integrity in financial decision making.”

She said she is interested in expanding the Lakeshore Campus in Waukegan.

“I want to make sure all stakeholders have a voice,” Paul said.

She said she is also interested in bridging the gap between elementary and high schools to improve graduation rates among Lake County students.

Paul serves on the CLC Foundation Board and works as a certified financial planner.
