From former McHenry County Board member Jack Franks:
The letter reads,
I acknowledge my role and involvement in the publication of the Flyers in connection with the 2018 Republican primary election through my association with the Illinois Integrity Fund.
I acknowledge that implication or assertion in the Flyers that Mr. Tirio has “a secret taxpayer funded slush fund,” committed theft, used public funds for a personal “vacation”, hired “cronies” or was “crooked” is false.
I regret any reputational or professional harm the Flyers may have caused Mr. Tirio.
The letter was fowarded from McHenry County Clerk Joe Tirio in an email entitled,
“The matter has been resolved and the parties have released their respective claims against each other.”
