ABOUT ME

Hi, I'm Ashfaq

I am running for Naperville City Council on April 4th, 2023.

 

I am an active resident of Naperville and passionate about making a difference in the city that I am proud to call home. One of our shared values is recognizing the need for diverse perspectives at all levels of decision making. All members of our community deserve a seat at the table. If I am elected by the people of Naperville, our City Council will be closer to reflecting the rich cultural diversity of our city, which is one of our greatest strengths as a community. I hope once you learn more about my history of community involvement, my proven leadership experience, and my vision for Naperville I will be able to count on your support for my campaign for Naperville City Council. 

My passion for Naperville goes beyond social engagement into real impact as reflected by the various boards and committees that I am committed to. I am a current trustee on the Naperville Public Library Board, a board member for  Loaves & Fishes, a brand ambassador for NCTV 17, a board member for Naperville Neighbors United and on the Diversity Advisory Board for the Daily Herald. I am also a graduate of the Naperville Citizen Police Academy and the Naperville Citizen Fire Academy.

I serve as a Committee Member for 360 Youth Services, a Civic Engagement Committee Member at the Islamic Center of Naperville with 4,500 families, and I am an Advisory Board Member at Sonia Shah, a non-profit organization that provides scholarships to underprivileged girls in the United States. 

In 2019, I was asked to co-chair the 2020 US Census Naperville Complete Count Committee.  I was honored to work with Mr. Mark Rice, Chairman of Naperville Complete Count Committee, to create innovative strategies for a widespread outreach campaign that was incredibly successful despite the challenges of Covid. Due to our hard work, Naperville was recognized as the #1 City in America for US Census Self Responses. Because of our success increasing census participation in Naperville, our city will receive more federal and state funding, which significantly impacts our city budget and alleviates some of the local tax burden on our citizens. In recognition of our invaluable contribution to the 2020 US Census in Naperville, we were honored with a City of Naperville Mayoral Proclamation.

I am an active elected PC for the Wheatland Township and have hosted many signature drives and collected hundreds of signatures for candidates running for office. Professionally, I have a successful career that spans over 20 years in the Banking and Finance industry and currently serve as the Vice President and Branch Manager for a global financial institution with locations in Naperville. I live in Naperville with my wife Ayeisha Osman and our three children. 

I have spent many years working with local non-profits, community organizations, religious and secular groups, and elected officials to help make Naperville the great city it is today. If elected I will use my experience and leadership skills from my extensive community involvement to ensure that Naperville remains the diverse, welcoming, and prosperous city we have worked so hard to create.  I look forward to talking with you more over the coming months about my vision for Naperville and I hope I can count on your support at the ballot box on April 4th.
