A letter to the Northwest Herald written by Lake in the Hills resident Deborah Jenssen and published here with her permission:
Something’s afoot in McHenry County government
The past two election cycles notably were the most brutal and despicable.
We must ask ourselves, what has changed?
I would submit the introduction of Chicago-type politics that have poisoned the well.
Recipients of all that has been dirty in the past two cycles were clear opponents of Jack Franks and his Machiavellian initiatives.
One might argue that the brunt of the dire play occurred in the primary process and, as such, was attributable to internal party struggles.
Because of the tenacity of Joe Tirio, we now know this is not the case.
Indeed, Franks has been named under penalty of perjury by his longtime political affiliates faced with incarceration.
I recall hearing that “politics is a full-contact sport.”
Oh, yeah, it was Franks who said that.
We can only expect more to follow.
