Author: Editor

Business continues to boom in Will County, and on Friday civic leaders thanked an elected official who has led the county for the past 15 years.

The Will County Center for Economic Development presented its Frank Turk Award to Will County Executive Larry Walsh during an annual meeting attended by about 200 business and municipal officials at the Clarion Hotel in Joliet.

Walsh, 71, will not seek re-election to a post he has held since 2004. His nearly 50-year career of public service has included time as a state senator, county board member, township supervisor and school board member.

Author: Editor

An easy victory may not be in the cards for State Senator Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant in her March 17 Democratic primary race for Will County Executive. She has strong name recognition, plenty of experience campaigning and hundreds of thousands of dollars in her campaign war chest, but last week, her main rival, Will County Executive Chief of Staff Nick Palmer, landed several noteworthy endorsements. 

And those endorsements come on the heels of an infusion of cash into Palmer's campaign.

First, Palmer's endorsements:

  • Denise Winfrey, Speaker of the Board, and the first African-American woman to hold that position.
  • Jackie Traynere, D-Bolingbrook
  • Meta Mueller, D-Aurora
  • Amanda Koch, D-Frankfort
  • Beth Rice, D-Bolingbrook
  • Margaret Tyson, D-Bolingbrook
  • Herb Brooks, D-Joliet
  • Mimi Cowan, D-Naperville

Co. Executive Walsh credits compromise for Will County's accomplishments

Author: Editor

In his 11th-annual State of the County address Thursday, Will County Executive Larry Walsh said the key to the county's success has been compromise and cooperation.

As he highlighted the "significant accomplishments" of the past year and the "exciting work" that lies ahead, Walsh stressed, "When we work together we can achieve great things."

The third-term Democratic leader has worked with a Republican-majority board on a $275 million effort to replace aging county facilities and, "despite challenges," has partnered with state and federal agencies on road work and expanded services to residents.
