The Northwest Herald, as with all other media took no interest in the 40-year old Lake in the Hills Sanitary District until Jack Franks took umbrage at being being outmaneuvered in a game of government control.
But, before we get to the ins and outs of that story, let’s reflect upon the NWH’s headline,
So far, the daily newspaper of record has allowed Franks’ shenanigans to hire two patronage employees in slots that had been unfilled so long that they could not be legally filled without further approval of the McHenry County Board to grace its front page.
Also ignored is the request from Yvonne Barnes for agenda items to be placed on the Human Resources Committee agenda.And the call for a Special Meeting of the Human Resources Committee by member Craig Wilcox hasn’t merited an article.
What about threatening Public Health Committee Chairman Chuck Wheeler for attending, upon invitation, an Executive Session of the McHenry County Mental Health Board?
And, if we want to go into way back land, how about the dirty tricks phone calls in Crystal Lake saying that 2000 opponent Tom Salvi was pro-gun, while, concurrently, Franks’ campaign was phoning Hebron residents saying he was anti-gun?
Surely readers can remember other shady actions by Franks.
Perhaps they will share them in the comment section.
