Patty Gustin has over 20 years of experience in governing and community service to share with Naperville in her campaign for a Naperville City Council seat.

She gained experience on boards in Lisle and Naperville beginning in 1994 and has led boards as chairwoman. Her leadership and service to the community are clear from the many ways she has served, most notably as a  Councilwoman for the city of Naperville these past two years. See the full list of service below.

After education at Roosevelt and DePaul Universities, she entered the workforce as a paralegal and held positions with the U.S. Attorney’s Office and with Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation for over 10 years before changing her business focus to Real Estate as a Realtor for both Berkshire Hathaway and Charles Rutenberg

With work experience in law and realty and with elected positions on boards and commissions, Patty is well suited to retain a seat on the Naperville City Council.
