Nick Korzeniowski has been an Evanstonian for over a decade, and his family has been in the Third Ward for much of that time. He studied at the University of Kansas where he majored in Political Science, and Philosophy for which he was published at only 19 years of age. After that, Nick worked for Apple for many years before making the change to the education sector where he’s been a Network Engineer managing various K-8 school districts over the years.
Nick’s been politically active most of his life, but with the ascendancy of Donald Trump in 2016 he decided it wasn’t enough and that he personally had to be the change he wanted to see. Nick ran for the D65 School Board (earning the endorsement of the District Educator’s Council).
His oldest, Christian, is a Kindergartener at Lincoln, with younger Logan starting in a couple more years. He has served on the boards of several organizations such as Indivisible Evanston (a progressive group aimed at helping policy and candidates with shared values), and the Southeast Evanston Association (which primarily focused on developments around town as well as the Save Harley Clarke movement).
He’s also a charter member of the non-for profit Dine After Dark which
encourages food service establishments to remain open late during Ramadan as a way to encourage inclusive business practices.
At a time when we’re all looking for a fresh start, Nick represents an active, equitable, and progressive future for the 3rd Ward and for all of Evanston.
