Jeanne M. Short, the new Ward 6 Alderman, and her family moved to West Chicago in 2012. They chose West Chicago to be closer to their church, the culture and the School District offered the dual language program.
After experiencing all the City had to offer, she wanted to give back. She served on the Historic Preservation Commission, where she learned even more about the City and its vision.
In 1989, Alderman Short graduated with an Associates in Applied Science from Triton College in River Grove. For the last 13 years she has worked as the marketing/sales manager for an insurance agency in Naperville.
