Business leaders thank Larry Walsh for leading Will County during period of economic growth

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.

Nick Palmer's Will County Executive Campaign Picks Up Steam

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
