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.
