“Bobby Walsh worked with us at our real estate company for years. He represented us well as he marketed and showed our downtown properties.

Voters in the 12th Ward can have confidence that his advocacy for our ward will be visible, well developed and grounded in resident input.”

“It is an honor for my wife Lynn and I to endorse Bobby Walsh for the 12th Ward Alderman. Bobby moved across the street from us a few years ago and we have enjoyed a great relationship while getting to know Bobby, his wife Jayne and their two boys. Bobby is an active member in our neighborhood and community with his involvement in so many activities that make Edgewater and the 12th Ward such a special place to live. It is terrific that he has shown a real interest in getting even more involved by choosing to run for 12th Ward Alderman. Lynn and I give him 100% of our support and endorsement.”
