EDITOR’S NOTE: One of the many benefits of running for the Naperville Park District Board of Commissioners is demonstrating community spirit by entering the West Suburban Irish St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The 2013 parade is slated for Sat., March 16, in downtown Naperville, several weeks before the Consolidated Election on April 9. By the way, Rich Janor was elected to the park board in 2011 where he currently serves as vice president.
