With no opponent in sight for state representative, Jack Franks (D-Marengo) increased his campaign operating capital $13,000 in the last six months.
Franks has extremely high “maintenance” expenditures, $112,500 during the last six months.
That’s a reduction from the $181,500 during the last six months of 2007 of which $195 went to Republican McHenry County Sheriff Keith Nygren.
Among Franks 2008 contributors was Republican McHenry County Board Chairman Ken Koehler, who gave $250 from his campaign committee. Sheriff Nygren contributed the same amount.
2006 Republican candidate for governor Judy Baar Topinka also contributed $500.
