Maybe it would be a good idea if Jack Franks really does withdraw from his race for State Representative.
I remember the vote he cast against Medicaid Reform back in 2012.
The Chicago Tribune ran an editorial about the vote in which it pointed out if legislators wanted more money for schools or public safety, “Then you want Medicaid and pension reforms.”
But Franks is still on the ballot for State Representative, plus County Board Chairman.
Sunday, May 15th, Gonigam reported this about Franks not running for both offices:
“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.”
