Illinois child welfare agency chief to step down; Gov. Pritzker conducting national search for replacement

Illinois child welfare chief Beverly “B.J.” Walker told the Tribune late Friday she will step down next month.

Gov. J.B. Pritzker is conducting a national search for a replacement, Walker said, and she has agreed to stay on to help the transition.

“I said they have the responsibility to assess what they need and to bring in the leadership they think can deliver on that,” Walker said in a telephone interview Friday evening.

In a statement, a Pritzker spokeswoman said, “The priority for the Pritzker administration is to ensure smooth transitions during this period.
