With 17-year old Kyle Rittenhouse sucking most of the media attention in Lake County, it is a wonder that the Daily Herald found room to report on the resignation of Democratic Party Chairman Terry Link yesterday.
Link, facing income tax evasion charges, could have appointed his replacement in the State Senate had he remained as County Chairman.
Younger voices and forces in his party made it clear that was not the path they desired.
The heat reached the boiling point Saturday and the 29-year County Chairman threw in the towel.
Former State Rep. Loren Beth Gash, the Party’ Vice Chair, will automatically step into Link’s shoes.
