McHenry County Board Chairman Jack Franks’ fingerprints were all over the bare bones resolution to kick ICE detainees out of the County Jail.
After all, he makes no bones about putting items on agendas–both committee and county board–without letting members know first.
Listening to the Law and Government/Liquor Committee meeting yesterday, one could see a majority of the members didn’t ask for consideration.
And, if Chairman Robert Nowak took that action, it was impossible to tell from his comments or “No” vote.
But today, Franks’ mouthpiece, the Northwest Herald–has a paragraph in its page 4 story about the 6-2 defeat which clearly implicates the Chairman:
Although the resolution failed in the committee meeting, Franks said it can still go up for discussion in new and unfinished business at the full board meeting.
Franks is clearly trying to stay in “I’m in control mode,” while he frets over what the Sangamon County State’s Attorney will do with the Illinois State Police’s criminal sexual allegations.
