By the time Lombard Village President Keith Giagnorio took the oath of office and shook hands with DuPage County Judge Patrick O'Shea, he already had helped lead the village through severe flooding and the beginning of the cleanup process.

Playing whiffle ball at Pasta Park, "Home of the Meatballs," is one of Lombard Village President Keith Giagnorio's favorite pastimes. The informal playing field is next to his home, which he says is a two-minute drive from the village hall and the pizza shop he owns in town, Giagnorio's Pizza.

About this Article

All the important things and people in Keith Giagnorio's life are close. His wife and children, his business, several members of his immediate family -- which includes nine siblings -- and even his second home, the Lombard village hall. The newly elected president of the Lilac Village rose to the seat from a position as District 2 Trustee. His home on Harrison Road keeps him nearby -- a two-minute drive without traffic, he says -- for whenever village business calls. Like April 18. At 4:30 a.m.
