Durbin Statement On Passing Of Longtime Naperville Mayor, George Pradel
WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) released the following statement regarding the passing of George Pradel, Naperville’s longest-serving mayor:
I used to kid George and tell him he was my favorite Republican. He was my personal guest at a State of the Union Address by George W. Bush. The reason for George’s popularity: he brought out the best in all of us. He loved Naperville and he loved life. He was more than “Officer Friendly.” He was a friend to everyone he met. I was glad to be in those ranks.
