The campaign finance report for July through September filed by McHenry County Board Chairman Jack Franks is a nothing burger.
He took in $20,751.48 and spent $13,880.89.
His D-2 form looks like a non-election report.
Most of the money came from a transfer from his PAC’s First National Bank of Omaha account–$10,000. There was a tiny bit of interest as well.
His biggest contribution was $2,500 from Thelen Sand & Gravel Inc., based in Antioch, but with pits in McHenry County.
$1,000 came from Union Pacific and $750 from Harris & Harris of Chicago, a law firm which seems to specializing in debt collection.
Expenditures were for utilities, insurance, payroll taxes and rent.
Patronage employee Bridget Geenen received a bit over $3,000.
$450 went to criminal defense law firm Ekl Williams & Provenzale LLC.
He lists one unidentified contribution to some candidate for $150.
$3,688.09 was spent on items costing less than $150.
Franks’ PAC is still the 300 pound guerrilla of McHenry County politics.
He has about $483,000 in resources.
