The Will County Health Department wants to be a central informational source for locals with questions or concerns about Ebola.
The department asks Will County residents to consider it as a hub of information for all local, regional and national public health information about Ebola, including developments and efforts to prevent the disease from spreading.
“We continue to meet regularly with our community health partners and other local units of government to make sure we are all on the same page regarding Ebola protocol,” said John Cicero, health department executive director.

Daniel Rippy (R) and Sherri Hale (D) are running to replace retiring Judge Robert Livas in Subcircuit 1.

Democrat Natalie Manley wants to serve another term in the Illinois House representing the 98th District, but her opponent Yvonne Bolton – a Plainfield Township tax collector – says she’s the better woman for the job.
Bolton describes herself as a stay-at-home mom with a passion for public service. She serves on several local governmental and nonprofit entities, including the Republican National Hispanic Assembly of Will County, the Spanish Community Center in downtown Joliet and the Will County Republicans. She’s a Hispanic conservative – a “rarity in the Latino community,” Bolton said.
