Will County executive’s race a tale of two counties

Author: Editor

The race for Will County executive features two veteran politicians who have different takes on how things are going in county government.

Incumbent Larry Walsh, D-Elwood, who is finishing his second term in office and is a former state senator, believes he has done a good job because the county’s budget is balanced, taxes haven’t risen in several years and a Regional Transportation Authority tax is paying for millions of dollars in “Build Will” roadwork.

Will 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.
