Progress Illinois was another place that ran a story on Jack Franks’ seeking the McHenry County Board Chairmanship.
It appears its source was the Northwest Herald.
Part of what was printed said,
“The population of our county is declining because of poor leadership in the county that relies too much on raising our taxes and too little on making the tough choices to consolidate overlapping and duplicative government services.”
No examples were given as to what tough choices Franks was willing to make.
Of course, he won’t have a vote on the County Board as Chairman…even to break ties.
He also contended that he is a proven tax fighter.
This story does not say that Franks is leaving the Illinois House.
That’s better than buying the line that he is…until he files a Withdrawal of Candidacy statement.
Remember, he told Pete Gonigam,
“Franks qualified that saying he’d give up the Rep. race if the Committee can pick another candidate who’s both ‘electable’ and holds a political outlook consistent with his own.”
