Naperville trustee Santucci gears up for re-election
One of two incumbents to file for re-election as Naperville Township trustee, GOP candidate Paul Santucci is preparing to face eight new candidates vying for his position with the Feb. 28 Republican primary.
“The most crowded Republican primary will be in Naperville Township, where 16 candidates have emerged for eight available seats,” the Daily Herald recently wrote.
An Aurora resident for the past decade, Santucci has served as an elected committeeman since 2007, bringing versatile skills to his position. Professionally, he serves as a communications consultant as well as a licensed real estate broker. Active in the Naperville Township Republican Organization, he has held several leadership positions.
Maintaining an active connection to his community, the incumbent trustee belongs to civic organizations including the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce, Greater Oak Brook Business Leaders, West Suburban Irish and the Naperville Rotary International.
He volunteers with local clubs and boards for civic, recreational and athletic purposes — he is a certified soccer coach — as well as environmental causes such as the DuPage County Forest Preserve and educational groups including District 204 PTAs.
Santucci graduated from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale with a bachelor’s degree in communications, Aurora University with a master’s, and from Notre Dame with an executive MBA.
The candidate conveyed enthusiasm for keeping Naperville Township “a destination community” through his continued trusteeship.
