Names in the News: Frankfort Man Wants to Challenge Hutchinson's Seat

Tuck Marshall, a Frankfort man who recently had an unsuccessful run at the Will County Board, announced his intentions to run as a Republican against Democratic incumbent Toi Hutchinson, of Olympia Fields, in the 40th Senate District.
