A letter to the Northwest Herald appeared today repeating that State Rep. Jack Franks has made three significant promises, only one of which he has kept.
The letter is published with the permission of Adam Liebmann:
Franks doesn’t always keep promises
With a move that surprised many McHenry County Republicans, Jack Franks made good on his promise to withdraw from the 63rd District race.
Let’s not forget, however, that Jack Franks has not always made good on his promises.
In 1998 Jack Franks made a pledge to serve only 3 terms as State Representative, but he failed to term limit himself and Franks is currently serving his 9th term in the Assembly.
In 2014 Jack Franks was quoted in the Northwest Herald “I can promise I’m not running for county chairman.” McHenry County residents know that to be a lie.
1 promise kept out of 3 isn’t a bad record, right? Did we really expect more from a career politician and Chicago Democrat like Jack Franks?
