Don’t Let Jack Franks Bring Madigan and Springfield to McHenry County
To the Editor:
The McHenry County Board passed a BALANCED budget – can Madigan, Franks, and Springfield say that?
The McHenry County Board has LOWERED its budget – can Madigan, Franks, and Springfield say that?
The McHenry County Board has LOWERED its levy – can Madigan, Franks, and Springfield say that?
The McHenry County Board is not broken like Jack Franks wants you to believe.
In fact The McHenry County board moves with diligence in a fiscally responsible manner – something that cannot be said for Madigan, Franks, and Springfield.
The McHenry County Board has held the line on taxes while Madigan, Franks, and Springfield have increased their budgets and levies. In fact, it takes a combined effort of numerous media outlets across the state to get Springfield to do anything.
Mr. Franks is now serving his ninth term. But more importantly, and very disturbing, Mr. Franks has voted for Mike Madigan as speaker NINE times.
Nine times Mr. Franks has voted to subjugate McHenry County to the fiscal insanity that Madigan and Springfield enforce upon everyone in Illinois.
You are the company you keep.
Many residents have moved from Cook County to escape corruption so why should we vote for someone who has embraced the power that comes with supporting Mike Madigan and Springfield?
Don’t let Jack Franks to bring Madigan and Springfield politics to McHenry County.
