Franks promotes falsehoods
Jack franks is a career politician that has been continually and knowingly deceiving residents to win an election.
Franks has promised to cut our property tax bills by 10%, which has zero chance of success given the complete lack of authority granted to the County Board Chairman.
Franks has also guaranteed to cut McHenry County’s portion of our tax bills by 10% his first day in office.
Unwitting voters, the fact is, the county board will have already voted and approved the 2017 budget prior to the November elections.
Representative Franks, how can you even promote these falsehoods? Is that the true reasoning behind your skipping the League of Women Voters forum?
Voters should choose the straightforward and sensible Michael Walkup for County Board Chair on November 8th.
