Jack Franks has a fundraising schedule, set during his State Rep. days, of a big ticket Chicago event and a low priced McHenry County one.
Invitations recently went out for the low-priced one ($40) for McHenry County folks.
The details are below:
As usual there is a Host Committee.
A quick check shows that the Republican County Board members who have appeared on past lists are missing this year.
There are people who claimed to be Republicans.
I see that former McHenry County Republican Party Chairman Bill LeFew is on the list. He has attended similar fundraisers in the past and, during his term of office, Franks had no GOP opponent.
Also on the list is former Marengo Mayor Don Lockhart. He endorsed Franks for McHenry County Board Chairman and was defeated when he ran for re-election.
Former Woodstock Mayor Alan Cornue, now a resident of Milwaukee, is listed at a “Host,” as is current Woodstock Mayor Brian Sager.
Former Mayor Frank Beatty, defeated by John Jacobson four and a half years ago is on the list.
Immediate past McHenry Mayor Sue Low is listed as well.
So is Algonquin Village President John Schmitt and Crystal Lake Mayor Aaron Shepley.
Former GOP State Rep. Jill Zwick, who ended her political career running as a Democrat for the Kane County Board, is a declared Franks’ supporter.
Fake Republican candidate Jeff Lichte, who ran against real Republican Steve Reick, again appears among the names on the Host Committee.
I see former County Board members Don Doherty, Randy Donley. and Bob Martens.
McHenry Alderman Victor Santi is on the list, as is Woodstock City Councilman RB Thompson.
