Lying Jack Franks Modifies Web Site

Lying Jack Franks must be feeling the heat.

Look what commenter Mark found:


“Cut property taxes now 10%” has been the gorssly misleading slogan and logo of Jack Franks’ campaign for McHenry County Board Chairman.

Jack Franks has changed his campaign website for McHenry County Board Chair.

His campaign website used to include the Cut 10 campaign to cut property taxes in every property taxing district in McHenry County by 10%.

No more.

Now Jack Franks’ website only says his goal is to cut property taxes to the McHenry County taxing district by 10% (he does not include villages, cities, fire protection districts, park districts, etc.

He switched.

And there is no explanation on the website for the switch.


However, the website still exists, which redirects to

On that website Jack Franks is still claiming:

“I urge you to support an immediate 10% cut in property tax levied by EVERY government body in McHenry County.”

“I’m running for McHenry County Board Chairman to cut property taxes levy by 10% across the board.

“This means a 10% property tax levy reduction from EVERY government body in our County.”

“Join me in sending a message to McHenry County leaders in support of this 10% cut.

And know that I will introduce this plan on my first day as your McHenry County Board Chairman.

– Jack Franks”

    So now he’s claiming he can reduce 10% of the 10% so that would equal 1%, but THE TRUTH IS, he won’t have the authority to do that either!

    Vote for Walkup!!

  3. Jacko needs to CUT the cut10 period.
    It doesn’t work either way you SLICE it.

    The fact that Jacko CAN’T DO MATH and has
    Started to realize it IS a BIG STEP for

    The TRUTH IS, he really WILL keep finding
    New ways to tax us all.

  4. Labor unions support Jack Franks who supports cutting property taxes.

    Does not make sense.

    But Jack Franks has been getting away with his pro union, anti tax hike agenda for 18 years.

    The result.

    Massive debt resulting from 46 years of underfunded and unfunded legislative pension and retiree healthcare benefit hikes.

    Jack Franks, the Unfunded Mandate Cost Hiker.

    What happens if costs are hiked, but taxes are not hiked to pay for costs?


    Guess what we have a lot of in Illinois.


    Legislators playing Santa Claus with benefit hikes and just letting debt pile up.

    It is really something to run around claiming you never voted for a tax hike, and naive taxpayers don’t realize you have voted for cost hikes in the form of unfunded mandates, and those cost hikes became law, and were not properly funded, so now we have big debt problems.
