A press release from Republican Party McHenry County Board Chairman candidate Mike Walkup:
Jack Franks set to vote for massive tax increase on sale of McHenry County Farms
Mike Walkup, County Board member and candidate for Chairman of the Board of McHenry County revealed today that ‘Lying’ Jack Franks, Democratic State Representative from the 63rd district and Delegate for Hillary Clinton is voting for or has already voted for the Democrat Party’s platform which includes tax increase language to wit,
“Restore fair taxation on Multi-Million dollar estates.”
[See page 13, paragraph 2 of the Democratic Party Platform.]
“This is an onerous development for our County’s farmers” said Walkup.
“I don’t understand the logic of a man
- who first of all says he won’t run for an office then does, after serving nine terms in an office he said he would only serve three in;
- who then turns around and stabs his own constituents in the back with huge tax increases while locally pretending publically to be fighting taxes.”
“Family farms here in McHenry County are being taxed into oblivion and now this outrage from a totally disconnected Democrat who makes his living in the banking industry doing foreclosures.”
“A simple 280 acre farm at today’s prices is worth in excess of three million dollars and the heirs simply can’t afford Franks’ tax increase” Walkup said.
