One of the candidates for District Six of the Will County Board, Joe Van Duyne, stopped by the 1340 WJOL studios yesterday. He’s raising a family in Wilmington, he coaches his son’s teams whenever he can; but as he told 1340 WJOL, a while back he realized he wanted to do even more. He was elected as a Wilmington aldcrman three-and-a-half years ago, and says “I was at a time in my life where I wanted to get involved.” He also says “I’m now ready to take the next step, and try the Will County level.
Van Duyne has two children, a nine year old son and a fourteen year old daughter. He’s a 20 year member of the I-B-E-W Electrician’s Hall Local 126.
