Why Orange & Navy Blue?
Drew graduated as an Oak Park and River Forest Husky and UIUC Fighting Illini, and is a lifetime Chicago Bears fan, so it was an easy call!
Drew's current contributions to his local community include serving on the Maercker District 60 Board Equity Committee, the D60 District Leadership Team, and advocating for the permanent closure of dangerous carcinogen-emitting sterilization plants (e.g. Sterigenics) that do not belong anywhere near densely populated residential communities. In his spare time, Drew enjoys traveling with his wife and two children, an occasional round of golf, and spending time with his seven siblings.
