Franks Folks Distribute Color Palm Card

You can see the first color literature of Democrat Jack Franks’ campaign for McHenry County Board Chairman below:

Franks lit 7-16 color side 2

Jack Franks hits the “tax fighter” theme, although so far he has not claimed to have lowered any local property taxes in 18 years of representing McHenry County.

This piece is the size small enough to fit into a business envelope.

One almost has to have a magnifying glass to figure out what the photos are about.

Jack Franks' campaign piece talks of opposing all tax increases, cleverly ignoring the huge tax increase bill he introduced this term.

In the upper right hand corner of the side seen above, note the Northwest Herald article about one of Jack Franks’ “headline bills.”

Headline bills are those everyone knows are not going to pass, ones that are only introduced in an attempt to get a headline.

The tactic works regularly with the NWH.

Also of interest is Franks claim about job creation.

The Illinois Manufacturing Association certainly does not agree, as you can see from the graphic below:

The Illinois Manufacturing Association selected this photo of Jack Franks to use when it criticized the Democrat for introducing a really large tax increase bill.

  1. “Eliminate government waste and fraud” – do not vote for Jack!

    He is a waste and a fraud.

  2. These are pictures of Jack doing
    A manipulative rave in the state
    Assembly so he can report to some
    Group who has given him campaign
    Money that he is doing his job for them.

    With Jack Franks, it’s slways about HIM,
    Campaign money & photo ops, in that order.

    Franks is a pretender & showboat with
    No substance, just hype.

    Mike Walkup is the REAL CANDIDATE !

  3. How is it that Jackie boy constantly claims to be the Tax Fighter, but he has no tax reductions to show for his effort?

    We don’t care a bit about his empty promises, we want RESULTS.

    Jackie has no results, just a lot of wind.

    Why don’t you libs even care about hold him accountable?

    Zero accomplishments in 18 years in office?

    But, you won’t hold Hillary the liar accountable either, nor DICK Durbin.

  4. Very good John comparing franks to Hillary.

    Neither one is accountable for their actions.

    I made a mistake and took one of these cards from the kid passing it out.

    Oh well, that is what the recycle bin is for.

  5. No. Don’t throw them away.

    Send political literature to me so everyone can see it.

    Either scan them or mail them to

  6. Jack Franks is a tax hiker by voting for legislative pension benefit hikes to pension systems that were already underfunded.

    Ditto most the rest of the Illinois General Assembly and all the past Governors since at least 1970 and many since the inception of the pension systems.

    All sorts of unfunded mandates including legislative pension and retiree healthcare benefit hikes have been dumped on local governments by the Illinois General Assembly including Jack Franks.

    Unfunded mandates that drive up property taxes.

    So now after causing property taxes to be hiked at the state, county, and local levels; he’s going to wave a magic wand and lower property taxes at the county level.

    It’s pretty obvious people don’t understand pension and retiree healthcare legislation, funding, and law for him to even be able to make that claim without being ridiculed.

    He’s just telling people what they want to hear and he has no chance at the county level of undoing the damage he and others have inflicted by their votes in the Illinois General Assembly.

  7. Mark,
    You hit the nail on the head.

    Like he has always done, he just tells people what they want to hear and he hopes they are stupid enough to either forget what he promised or they don’t hold him accountable.

    This time, there are too many of us who are fully capable of holding him accountable and constantly letting the voters know who he really is and that he has no accomplishments at all.

  8. I suppose Jack is demonstrating his tax fighting efforts by spending taxpayer $ on what appears to be a campaign letter for his quest for the county board chair.

    How, exactly is that saving taxpayers?

    I Jackie really wanted to show he was focused on saving taxpayers, he would have used his own money to send that letter.

    Well at least he is being transparent. He is showing he will use taxpayer $ at will.
