Tonya Franklin Introduces Herself
Tonya Franklin, a local Republican and a nationally renown Tea Party activist, wants to run against Democrat Jack Franks for Illinois State Representative in the 63rd district.
For unknown reasons she has yet to be given the ok to run as a Republican by the McHenry County Republican Party central committee.
Tonya does not support the enactment of Obamacare in Illinois TWO YEARS EARLY as is being proposed by Democrats and many Republicans.
“I would simply vote ‘NO’ and I would work with every conservative in Springfield to make sure this never saw the light of day,” said Tonya Franklin.
“Can we be sure that Jack Franks would vote against this? I do not think so.
“This idea is reckless, fiscally irresponsible, empowers big government, and crushes the free market system… something we all know the Democrats and Jack Franks want to do.”
Tonya Franklin has a network in McHenry County’s 63rd district ready to help get her on the ballot.
She also has statewide and national support from many activists and leaders.
Currently, she is waiting for the ok to run by the Republican Party of McHenry.
“As someone who works in the medical field I know exactly just how damaging this compromise would be, not only be to our state, but people right here in the 63rd district,” added Franklin.
The McHenry County Republican Party needs a qualified conservative to run against Jack Franks in the November Election! There is a conservative who can run and win.
Her name is Tonya Franklin.
