Earlier today, a news conference took place on the steps of Naperville City Hall to announce that Rich Janor will be running as the new Republican nominee for State Representative in the 41st District. This comes after Naperville City Council Member Jennifer Bruzan Taylor withdrew from the race due to “personal family matters.”
Illinois House Republican Leader, Jim Durkin, spoke about Janor at the conference. Fellow Republicans Kevin Coyne, John Curran, Suzanne Hart, and Krishna Bansal also spoke.
Janor is a father to three, an author, a long time baseball coach, and a business owner. He says his main reason for running is to make Naperville and the surrounding area a safer place.
Rich was elected to the office of Naperville Park District Commissioner and was reelected in 2015 and 2019. He was elected President of the board three times. During his presidency, the Park District opened the Fort Hill Activity Center.
He will face off against Democrat state Rep. Janet Yang Rohr in the November general election.
