In the debate May 16, 2020, over whether Jack Franks’ agenda item to require McHenry County Board members who take health benefits to keep time sheets, the Chairman made a stunning admission.
Provoked by County Board member Jim Kearns, Franks admitted,
I don’t spend a lot of time at the Administrative Building.
I don’t keep hours.
I will start keeping hours [if the requirement passes].
On the average I spend much more than twenty hours a week.
Fifty to sixty hours.
I couldn’t get it done without an incredible staff.
