Palmer, who has worked under Walsh since 2004, told a crowded room at the office of the DuPage Township Democrats in Bolingbrook that he wanted to continue the work he and the rest of Walsh’s staff have been doing.

“I want to build on Larry’s legacy of bringing those services to the people, improving the efficiency, bringing more technology in,” said Palmer, 45.

Bertino-Tarrant considering run for Will County executive in 2020

Author: Editor

State Sen. Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant said she is considering a run for Will County executive in 2020.

Will County Clerk records show Bertino-Tarrant, D-Shorewood, pulled a nominating petition for county executive on Wednesday, but she said she has made no official decision about her plans for the next election.

Her current term in the Illinois Senate ends in 2021. Bertino-Tarrant confirmed Thursday she was meeting with local leaders about the decision and said she would make her announcement once she feels comfortable doing so.

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.

Youth mental health center in Tinley Park could fill need, Sen. Hastings says

Author: Editor

A proposed mental health facility in Tinley Park could give children the space they need to get better. 

State Sen. Michael Hastings, D-Frankfort, and officials from a south suburban behavioral health care practice last month announced plans for an acute care psychiatric hospital for children and adolescents at 6775 Prosperi Drive.

The idea and vision for a proposed MIRA Neuro-Behavioral Health Center for Children and Adolescents will be up for review in September, and, if approved, remodeling of the building where the center will be located would begin this fall, according to a July news release from Hastings’ office. Outpatient services could begin next winter, followed by some acute care hospital beds open next June. The center would be at full capacity by January 2021, the release said.
