Moves from Executive to County Board
“We could not have found a better, more experienced individual than Nick Palmer to oversee county board matters and legislative issues,” said County Board Speaker Mimi Cowan (D-Naperville). “Nick has worked closely with the Will County Board for 16 years and he will hit the ground running on day one when he assumes this post.”
In addition to managing operations of the county board, Palmer said his priorities will be in the areas of transportation, fiscal responsibility, and maintaining the quality of life for local residents. Palmer believes his experience will help build consensus and accomplish the goals that the county board has set.
“I have enjoyed my time working for the Will County Executive’s office but there is more work to be done in Will County and I am honored to have this opportunity to continue with the County Board,” said Palmer. “I look forward to working with the board, the executive’s office and all of our other departments in Will County to ensure that the needs of our residents are responsibly met.”
Palmer, 46, resides in Bolingbrook with his wife Laura and their four children. He assumes his new position on November 2nd, 2020.
