Building Will County for Working Families


Meet Nick Palmer

Democrat for Will County Executive

Nick grew up in a working-class home in Joliet. Both of his parents were union teachers in the Joliet public schools. They instilled in him the importance of hard work, saving, serving your community, and being dedicated to your family. 

In his fifteen years as Chief of Staff for Will County Executive Larry Walsh, Nick saw how these core values can be put to work by county leadership. Nick is committed to continuing to build Will County for working families.

Nick has worked across the aisle for fifteen years to solve our county’s most difficult issues. His priorities include maintaining the county’s fiscally responsible foundation while modernizing our infrastructure and implementing a long-term sustainability plan.

Nick, his wife Laura, their four children, and their rescue dog, Apollo, live in Bolingbrook.
