A spiffy new television ad is the latest method State Rep. Jack Franks is using to convince people to vote for him for McHenry County Board Chairman.
Here’s the text, which a man reads:
Seen your property tax bill?
It’s pretty bad news.
While our taxes skyrocketed, the County Board gave themselves pensions and perks.
So, Jack Franks passed a law to end that scam.
As our legislator, Jack’s always fought against tax hikes.
Now, he’s running for Board Chairman to end the fraud and abuse.
Jack Franks has a real plan to cut our property taxes.
He’ll bring much needed reform to the County Board.
We need tax relief.
We need Jack Franks.
= = = = =
Jack Franks, contrary to this ad, has never set forth a “real” plan or any kind of a plan to cut property taxes.
And, he can’t shrink the County Board.
And, he can’t impose Term Limits.
He might be able to convince the County Board to “consolidate agencies,” but there is no way he can do that without County Board approval, where he would not even have a vote, if elected.
