A Leader for Lake County
Paras has always led the charge to help his community. After graduating from the University of Michigan, Paras began his career as a staff member in Washington D. C. to a member of the Congress. He then later served as a planning commissioner in his hometown of Ann Arbor before moving to the Chicago area.
Now, he resides in Highland Park with his wife Shruti and their twins Reya and Eshaan. In 2017 he was elected a Trustee for West Deerfield Township which encompasses areas of Lake Forest, Deerfield, Highland Park, Bannockburn, and Lincolnshire. As a Trustee he stayed firm against raising taxes and still finding ways to impact on our neighbors with the most needs.
He is excited to forge a new path and serve the people of Lake County. As a former planning commissioner and current Trustee of West Deerfield Township, Paras not only has the experience to get things done, but he brings a new, bold, and principled perspective to the Lake County Board.
