As a mother, school board member, and businesswoman, Janet Yang Rohr is a committed leader who will fight to reduce the tax burden facing hard-working families, increase access to health care, and put the needs of the residents of the 41st House District first and foremost.
Janet is a lifelong resident of Naperville, where she met her husband Dan. They decided to raise their three kids, Kathryn, Jonny, and Miriam, in Naperville because of the strong community. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in English and Economics from Northwestern University and a Master of Business Administration in Finance, Accounting, and Entrepreneurship from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. She is currently the Director of Global Data at investment data and research firm, Morningstar in Chicago.
Janet joined the Naperville District 203 School Board in 2017 to ensure that her children and others are provided with opportunities they need to be successful. There, she used her business background to lower and abate property taxes and debt service levies by millions of dollars, while expanding the early childhood education and other programs that will help all students succeed.
Whether it has been on the school board or with other similar organizations, Janet uses her business and finance experience to push forward each group's goals and missions in measurable ways that use resources wisely.
As state representative, Janet will use her commonsense mindset and drive for practical solutions to get things done on behalf of all community members of the 41st District.
