COD Board candidate Corrigan gets two key endorsements
Wheaton attorney Annette Corrigan has bagged the endorsements of College of DuPage Board Chair Frank Napolitano and former board member Deanne Mazzochi in her run for the school’s board of trustees.
“Annette Corrigan has been a leader in her community,” the two said in a Feb. 28 press release. “She is a passionate and qualified candidate with a strong legal background. She has a robust awareness of the challenges the college will face in the coming years, as well as a clear vision for the direction of the school.”
The release went on to detail how Corrigan’s vast array of experiences easily make her the best candidate for the post.
“A wife and mother of four, Annette understands how the college impacts the county’s taxpayers,” the release added. “We are endorsing Annette because she has something her opponents do not: recent firsthand experience as a parent of a student with specific higher-education needs. Her understanding of current student needs balanced against her sensitivity to the bottom lines of the families and businesses funding College of DuPage would be a valuable addition to the board.”
Corrigan thanked both leaders for publicly expressing their support.
“I am grateful and humbled to have the support of Napolitano and Mazzochi,” she said in the release. “They have led with an integrity and a clarity of purpose. I thank both for understanding the purpose of my candidacy and the need for strong leadership in DuPage.”
Mazzochi recently announced she was stepping down from the board after being voted in as the new state representative in the 47th District.
