Even before Republican County Board Chairman candidate Mike Buehler called for his opponent Jack Franks’ resignation, Chuck Wheeler did so.
Here is his press release about his member comments at Thursday’s Committee of the Whole meeting:
County Board Member “Chuck” Wheeler Called for Immediate Resignation of County Board Chairman Jack D Franks
9/10/2020—Woodstock, IL— Today at the specially called County Board Meeting, Board Member Chuck Wheeler (R) Dist. 4 demanded the resignation County Board Chairman Jack Franks.
Wheeler in his remarks sighted the stain that Franks has placed on his office by the allegations of criminal sexual assault.
Mr. Wheeler further sighted that Mr. Franks is not allowed in the State Capitol complex without a police escort according to rules established by his friend and colleague Michael Madigan, Speaker of the House.
“It is unacceptable that we allow this type of individual to roam freely in our mist.
‘We have employees who expect security and safety in their work environment.
‘And I have been told that fear is running throughout our County,” stated Wheeler.
Wheeler was elected in 2014 and re-elected in 2018 and currently serves on Law and Government and Liquor Committee as well as the Public Health and Community Services Committee for the McHenry County Board. He also serves as the Vice-Chair of the McHenry County Republican Party.
Jack Franks, a democrat, is on the ballot to be re elected to the office of County Board Chairman this fall.
