Will County Executive Walsh will not run for reelection in 2020

Author: Editor

Will County Executive Larry Walsh Sr. announced Thursday that he will not run for reelection in 2020 so he can instead focus on his health. 

Walsh, D-Elwood, made the announcement amid health concerns that he has been facing for the past five years. The 71-year-old said his doctors urged him to focus on getting better.

 He was treated for prostate cancer in 2014 after a diagnosis at a regular medical checkup. Since then, he’s continued getting checkups, and late last year he announced that he had begun chemotherapy treatments after receiving a second prostate cancer diagnosis.
