Watching for things political in the Lake in the Hills Parade on Saturday morning brought a surprise.
The Democrats came first behind a banner of McHenry County State’s Attorney candidate Ray Flavin.
All were wearing tee shirts supporting Flavin’s candidacy.
Behind the banner was a truck with capital letters spelling Flavin’s name.
The candidate himself was toward the back of the Democrats’ entry.
When I looked at the back of the tee shirts, I saw two images, one of Flavin’s pony tail and another saying, “Justice Matters.”
There may have been local candidates walking in the Flavin contingent, but there was no way for a spectator to know who they were.
And, as the headline says, the Democrats’ most prominent candidate, Jack Franks was missing in action.
He replicated his non-appearance in Algonquin’s Founders Day Parade.

Let me add that Franks’ knowledge of the Alqonquin-Lake in the Hills part of McHenry County, which he has never represented in the Illinois House, is weak.
When a woman asked about not being able to attend McHenry County College, Franks did not seem aware the extent of McHenry County that School District 300 covers. (District 300 residents are in the Elgin Community College District, not in McHenry County College’s district.)
