Jason Han was elected in April to serve on the Village of Northbrook, Ill., Board.
An English major at Illinois Wesleyan, Jason revieved his law degree from the University of Illinois. He opened his own law practice in Chicago in 2014. Asked by the Daily North Shore why he was pursuing office, Jason said, “I am running because this community has not reached its potential. It could be so much better. We need to reach out to newcomers such as the Asian-American community. Northbrook is about 20 percent Asian-American yet has never had an Asian trustee on the Village Board. We need to reach out to a younger generation and encourage them to choose Northbrook.’
