Executive Larry Walsh cites collaboration as key to Will County's successes

Author: Editor

Collaboration and compromise have been the keys to Will County's many successes in the past year, said Executive Larry Walsh in his State of the County speech Thursday morning. 

The county's many achievements — its strong financial health, current building projects and capital improvement plan, new businesses, like Amazon's five facilities, and thousands of new jobs — were made possible by working together with the county board and elected officials throughout the county, in a "disciplined approach to governing," the Elwood Democrat said.

Will County also has been recognized for ending veteran homelessness, remodeling its Sunny Hill Nursing Home, and battling the heroin epidemic, he said.

Three plan to seek Will County clerk's seat

Author: Editor

The 2018 retirement of four-term Will County Clerk Nancy Schultz Voots has created a wide open field in the March primary, into which — so far — three prospective candidates have emerged.

Two Republicans said they are seeking the office: Laurie McPhillips, who previously served as recorder of deeds and county board member, and Mary Kay Campbell, a current employee in the clerk's office. Democratic County Board member Lauren Staley-Ferry, of Joliet, said she will attempt to win the seat dominated for decades by Republicans.

Sept. 5 is the first day for candidates to circulate nominating petitions for the March 18 primary.
