Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr. says he's stepping down as chairman of the Lake County Democratic Party toward the end of June. The 45-year-old McDermott, who's been party chair for five years, said he wants to focus more attention on the city, as well as being a husband and father, according to a report in the Times, which also says the mayor of Lake County's largest city is planning to run for re-election next year, and looking at running for higher office someday. There's been speculation a gubernatorial campaign could be down the road.
