Sunday Dec. 8 at Howells' house, 644 S. Grove (NE corner Jackson), 2-5.
Dan Proft, who was born in Oak Park, visits at the Oak Park Republican holiday party. He's an entrepreneur, writer, former Republican candidate for Governor, and radio talk show host for WLS in Chicago, where he co-hosts with Bruce Wolf on weekday mornings, 5-9.
He also works as a Senior Fellow at the Illinois Policy Institute, a free market think tank in Chicago, and serves on the boards of two non-profits — the Disabled Patriot Fund, that provides assistance to Illinois military families, and Freedom to Learn-Illinois, that "supports all forms of parental choice in education, with a particular emphasis on scholarships and vouchers that aid low-income and working class families."
On top of all that, and topping it, he says, he's "an aspiring basketball coach."
A Northwestern graduate, he has his law degree from Loyola-Chicago..
