A comment from “Inish” worth sharing from under the article entitled,
stimulated the following comment:
Rested like a arrow in a quiver by no one’s fault but their own.
The County Board ACTIVELY voted to raise the requirement from 60 hours to a 1,000. [That was in 1998. Not more than a handful of current members were on the board then.]
Now they want to claim they had no idea.
Sorry- no pass.
They are elected to be responsibility for millions of dollars of tax dollars and decisions that impact hundreds of thousands of people- and I should just accept they didn’t read?
Sure- this is a political stunt- and you know why it is working- because rather than correct the issue and move on- they are trying to shift the blame to say that somehow, this very real, concrete issue is not relevant because Franks brought it up. [Jack Franks’ targeting IMRF occurred after the 2014 GOP Primary Election, but the point is well-taken.]
This is exactly why he wins every time- the Republican leadership reacts to whatever Franks does rather than respond.
Instead of spending so much time on whether he will run for one or the other- why aren’t you concentrated on figuring out how to beat him?
Because at the end of the day you know he can, and likely will win both.
