Will County Executive Larry Walsh signs County Board resolution prohibiting additional video poker machines in unincorporated Will County

Says “time to get serious” about governing in Will County

With some serious reservations, Will County Executive Larry Walsh signed a resolution recently approved by the Will County Board that prohibits additional video poker licenses in establishments in unincorporated Will County. Walsh said although there was sizable opposition to one establishment in Frankfort Township, the action taken by the board is mostly symbolic.

“There were several bills introduced in Springfield this year and the County Board should have taken a more serious approach to this ‘critical’ problem they have identified,” said Walsh. “Instead they focused on one establishment in one part of our county. I hope that despite this resolution being more of a ‘feel good’ action, they will get serious and be proactive in pushing our state legislators to enact legislation that actually limits future expansion of these types of gaming devices that are found throughout Will County, now and in the future.”
