One of the problems that State Rep. Jack Franks has with passing his pet referendum is that he does not have a unified Democratic Party behind him.
Take, for example, Paula Yensen, the wife of the McHenry County Democratic Party Chairman, Mike Bissett.
Or Cathy Bergan Schmidt, the other incumbent Democratic Party County Board member.
At the County Board debates, the only Democrats I remember endorsing the proposal were District 4 candidate Mary Margaret Maule and District 6 candidate Ryan Heuser.
And after the debate, I saw this woman with a bunch of “Vote No” signs under her arm.
As she turned around, I saw “Anderson for Congress” signs under the other arm.
I asked where she lived and discovered it was rural Cary.
