Candidates for Will County Board District 9 take on the issues

Among the issues of concern for the nominees for Will County Board District 9 ahead of the Nov. 6 election are roadway infrastructure, water supplies and the opioid epidemic. The race consists of two open seats with three candidates vying for the opportunity to serve. Incumbent Republican Annette Parker is looking to retain her position over Democratic challengers Rachel Ventura and Jim Murphy. “I’m running for re-election to continue the positive progress,” Parker said. “In the last three-and-a-half years of being elected, we reduced property tax rates on the county portion of your property tax bill. I supported opioid prevention. … I supported green space. I supported job growth, here, in Will County.”
