Jack Franks does not have a fall opponent on the fall ballot thanks to inaction on the part of the McHenry County Republican Central Committee, so he is free to promote the County Executive form of government referendum after he learned that Tonya Franklin would not be on the ballot.
[Franks does have write-in candidate Joe Rosner running against him.]
“Hi. This is State Representative Jack Franks and I’m calling to ask for you to vote for the referendum to create an Executive form of government in McHenry County.
“A ‘Yes’ vote will allow the citizens to directly elect the County Executive who will be held accountable by and to the people of McHenry County.
“There will finally be real checks and balances and a way to stop ever increasing property taxes.
“In Will County, the only county in Illinois to currentlyemployee this form of government, property taxes
are on average 57% less than in McHenry County–57%.
“Please vote ‘Yes” for the County Executive government and we can have a government that is accountable to you and actually lower your tax bill.
