Harvard’s Bill Matteson has written a letter to the Northwest Herald which he has given permission to be published here:
Candidate we can trust
To the Editor:
Republican Michael Walkup is the candidate we can trust to represent residents as McHenry County Board chairman.
Democrat Jack Franks has repeatedly stated he will introduce his “Cut 10 Plan” on his first day as chairman.
Why must voters wait until after the election to learn the details and merits of this so-called plan?
Franks also published in a statement that he would take full advantage of the consolidation legislation that was signed into law this past August. In what ways will Franks utilize consolidation?
Again, we have to wait until after the election.
Franks is also promoting an advisory referendum on the November ballot which would freeze the county’s ability to raise taxes without voter approval.
The glaring problem with Franks’ advisory referendum?
There is no such referendum on the ballot.
Do not gamble on Franks.
Vote Walkup for County Board chairman.
Bill Matteson, Harvard
