McHenry County Blog has been suggesting that State Rep. Jack Franks might run for County Board Chairman for a long time.
Because of what Franks said he wouldn’t, but his actions speak louder than his words. (His big survey, for instance.)
In his October, 2012, debate with State Rep. Mike Tryon on the subject, Franks was asked whether he would run for the office, if the County Board Chairman referendum passed.
Let me quote directly from my article of October, 17, 2012:
He (Franks) defanged that issue by declaring,
“I will neither seek nor accept the nomination for this office.” [Emphasis added.]
Previously, Franks gave the same message to the Northwest Herald.
So much for Jack Franks’ truthfulness.
If he runs, this will be the second big promise he has broken.
The first was that he would limit his number of terms in Springfield to three.
Franks is now in his ninth term.
