What appeared to be a slick method of campaigning by McHenry County Board Chairman Jack Franks turns out to be taxpayer financed.
On February 1, 2018, McHenry County Blog published a certificate received by a Johnsburg Middle School student.
It is for 5,000 sheets of special vellum paper.
It doesn’t take a lot of intuition to guess that lots of Geenen’s time is spent
- gathering student names from school districts
- typing those names on certificates
- addressing those certificates for mailing
- postage for the mailings
And all of it is to benefit Jack Franks personally for when he runs for office again.
McHenry County Blog was willing to give Franks the benefit of the doubt by assuming that he was using campaign money for this effort to increase his name identification.
