Secretary- Jill Borst
My roots run deep in Justice. I lived here for 28 years before moving out of town for a little while. I am so happy to be back where I belong! Although I didn't live in town for a while, I have always been a part of the Justice community, I have been a teacher at Brodnicki Elementary School for 20 years. I served as a commissioner on the Justice Park District board from 1993-1994. The changes that have happened since then are amazing and I couldn't be more proud to be a part of this wonderful organization. I look so forward to working with the JPD board and can't wait to see even more great things happen!
