Jack Franks’ Referendum Signs Being Posted Near Republicans’ without Permission

Remember those Vote Yes on the County Executive signs that showed up next to Ersel Schuster and Diane Evertsen signs on Route 14 near Harvard?

Photo taken the first time “Vote Yes” signs were put near the landowner’s Republican Party signs.

The homeowner removed them, but two more just showed up.

The people supporting Jack Franks’ County Executive referendum put up two more signs near Republican candidates’ signs.  (See lower left hand corner of the photo.)  The landowner thinks it is a deliberate attempt to make it seem as if Republicans are supporting the change.

The email read:

“A neighbor alerted me that two more of those pesky ‘Vote Yes’ signs had been put on our property along Rt. 14. I’ve attached a photo.

“Who ever puts them up is clearly missing a back bone and other anatomical parts or they would not be afraid of being open about who they are and who they represent.

“It is already openly known that whoever is printing and posting these ‘Vote Yes’ signs is fraudulently suggesting that they are representing the McHenry County Republican Party.

“Which they are Not.

“It also certainly suggests that the push to form an executive form of county government here in McHenry County is being driven by some pretty shady characters.”

  1. Next Tuesday night we will find out if the “tricksters” were successful.

    Those who are planting the “Yes” signs may want to remember that “turnabout is fair play”.

    With the two Democrats currently on the County Board being against the referendum those planting “yes” signs may want to be a little more careful.

    It has been said that if Jack runs again as a Democrat, he will have REAL opposition in a primary – no matter what office he attempts to chase.

  2. The “Vote Yes” signs are clearly, and illegally, in the right-of-way.

    If IDOT had the time, manpower and initiative, it would remove those signs.

    Any IDOT truck passing by ought to pass and grab all illegal signs.

    I wonder if it is illegal to “help out” IDOT by collecting the illegal signs from the right-of-way and delivering them to an IDOT maintenance yard, such as the one in Woodstock.

  3. The County Executive post was added in Will County in 1988 and is a scheme by Franks/Madigan to gain a further Democratic stronghold on McHenry County.

    Chicago Democrats are trying to extend their tentacles into McHenry County just as the have in Will County.

  4. When madigan is part of it you know it is wrong and the taxpayers would pay more no matter what it is about.

    Madigan has to go if you want Illinois to become somewhat solvent.

    With these two working together you know in the end the taxpayers lose.

  5. look at dennis anderson signs Cal!!!!

    they put them up right next to hultgren signs on private property!

    Someone needs to realize how stupid this guy is

  6. Curious speculation Mark, but completely false.

    Wouldn’t a better “scheme” to gain this imaginary “Democratic stronghold” in McHenry County to actually include the local Democrats?

  7. What evidence is there that Madigan is at all involved in this County executive issue?

  8. And- perhaps I’m missing something here- couldn’t a Republican run for the County Executive position?

    And, perhaps, win?

    I must have missed the bit where only Democrats can become County Executives.

    Because, after all, there are boatloads of Democrats in county goverment here.

  9. Franks’ signs now populate highway right-of-ways in the southeast.

    Franks even robo-called me yesterday to warn me to be careful on Halloween, oh, and save “millions in property taxes” by voting for a county executive.

    Sure, Jack, and we need a lottery for public education.

  10. Wow, all of these yard sign placements are so important.

    It is a good thing you guys are so careful watching out for these violations.

    I shudder to think what might happen to society if these matters weren’t posted here.

  11. Anyone who is against the County Board Executive potion clearly has never been to a board meeting and has no clue how utterly incompetent and selfishly cliquey the boards is…

    they care not what is best for the greater good or the community – only what is good for them and theirs…

    They are a total disgrace.

  12. Or, people could be opposed because they don’t trust an Illinois politician to have the authority to spend $25,000 without prior County Board approval.

  13. **Anyone who is against the County Board Executive potion clearly has never been to a board meeting and has no clue how utterly incompetent and selfishly cliquey the boards is…**

    Ooh… please do tell how having a county executive would solve any of those problems.

    **they care not what is best for the greater good or the community – only what is good for them and theirs…**

    And please do tell how this does not also describe Jack Franks — the ONLY person supporting this county executive initiative?
