Naperville News 17 would like to congratulate Mayor Pradel, this year’s recipient of the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
From his days as officer friendly to his nearly 20 years in office, Mayor Pradel has left his mark on the Naperville community.
Many Naperville notables shared their fond memories of Pradel in a video played at the annual Small Business of the Year Awards ceremony.
“Through all your almost five decades of public service to the citizens of Naperville, you have clearly put the residents and their needs as number one,” said Robert Marshall, Naperville’s Chief of Police. “Congratulations Mr. Mayor. This recognition is richly deserved.”
“Thank you, Mayor Pradel, for being our greatest community salesman and our most popular tourist attraction,” said Christine Jeffries, President of the Naperville Development Partnership.
This is Mayor Pradel’s last year in office. He has decided not to run again in April.
