The time was 11 o’clock.
The place was the County Administrative Building.
The participants had been summoned by McHenry County Board Chairman Jack Frnaks as part of his campaign to convince voters that he had not really promised that their homes’ property tax bills would be cut 10%.
School superintendents and board presidents attended the meeting, but the pubic was excluded.
So, besides not carrying out his pledge to cut our tax bills by 10%, Franks broke his promise to be transparent.
No one would be surprised, however, if the Jack Franks’ house organ, otherwise known as the Northwest Herald, didn’t have a reporter in the room.
