Found on WLS-AM’s “Big” John Howell show was this statement from Jack Franks:
“I had to do a real gut check to say ‘where can I do the best for the citizens of McHenry County’, and I thought I could make a much bigger change coming home to fix the corruption and the waste and the fraud, and to really work on property tax relief and the things that are important to my constituents, and I think I can get that done in McHenry County.”
The article added, “Republican Mike Walkup is also running for McHenry County Board Chairman.”
Franks, of course, did not note that the McHenry County Board cut taxes this year, but that can be seen on the real estate tax bills that were just delivered.
During the interview, he said that the Illinois Manufacturers Association has taken a poll two weeks ago and found that he would win re-election as State Representative 78-19%.
