The Tribune offers endorsements today in contested races in DuPage, Will, Lake and Kane counties. There are no contested countywide races in McHenry County.
County Chief Executive: Larry Walsh, the Democratic incumbent, has been an effective leader, boosting economic development and improving governmental efficiency in one of the fastest-growing counties in the state. One of his signature accomplishments: improving the county's bond rating. Walsh faces a formidable opponent in Republican Cory Singer, of Frankfort, president of the Will County Forest Preserve District, who says he won't increase property taxes and will push to establish small-business incubators in the county. We like Singer, but Walsh has the track record of accomplishment here. He is endorsed.
