Annette has been married to her husband “Chip” for 29 years. They have four children, now in young adulthood. Her family is clearly at the heart of her motivation to be her best professional self. Annette’s impressive accomplishments include her undergraduate and law degrees from Marquette University and bar admission in multiple states. She serves our DuPage community as a practicing attorney working with families and children – helping them through extremely challenging times. Having a child grow up with special needs shaped not only her legal expertise but her passion as a strong family and child advocate.
As a member of the Board of Trustees for the College of DuPage, Annette has brought common sense to divergent views – and even contentious divides. Chosen by her fellow COD Board Members to chair the General Counsel Search Committee, Annette currently chairs the COD Audit Committee and is a strong voice for accountability on the Budget Committee. She is a fierce proponent that every tax dollar must be spent wisely to achieve the maximum benefit for our COD students.
As a past member of the Editorial Board for the DuPage County Bar Association’s bar journal (“DCBA Brief”), she assured quality legal publication standards. At St. Michael’s Parish, she served as School Board President, is currently on Pastoral Council Leadership and co-founder of the Lenten Fish Fry to benefit the school. With two Eagle Scouts, Annette supported the Boy Scouts of America organization as Committee Chair, Eagle Scout Coordinator and Merit Badge Counselor.
“We have tremendous talent and new business potential in DuPage County. We are surrounded by people who care about our community. Our family has always felt safe here. DuPage County is our home, and we are staying put. I’m committed to ensuring a bright future for DuPage County!”
--- Annette Corrigan, Candidate to serve the residents of DuPage County Board - District 4
