Who's Running: Naperville Candidates for the April 2013 Election

A roundup of who's running for Naperville City Council, District 203 and District 204 school board, township offices, Napeville Park District board and the College of DuPage board.

Naperville Patch wants to make sure you have all the information you need when you head to the polls on April 9. Stay tuned for more coverage in the weeks leading up to the election.
