One Naperville man says he plans to throw his hat in the ring for the office of mayor.
Marine Corps veteran Richard “Buzz” Polizzi says when he was 36 years old, he ran for mayor, but lost.
Decades later, after raising his family, Polizzi says he’s ready to fill the position after Mayor Pradel’s current term is finished next spring.
“My time has come now and my time was get back into what I love. I don’t call it politics. I’m not a democrat or republican. I’m a statesman. I’m here to help as many people as I can without hurting or offending as few as I can,” said Polizzi.
So far the only other person who’s announced his candidacy for mayor is current city councilman Steve Cherico.
Voters will elect Naperville’s next mayor in April 2015.
