Author: Editor

Will County Executive Larry Walsh has worked in politics his entire life, and he's never seen it this bad.

Walsh, who turns 69 on March 3, remembers when Democrats and Republicans compromised when it was time to work through political differences and do the jobs they were elected to do.
