Our view: Feud drives ballot push
We have mixed feelings about state Rep. Jack Franks’ attempt to put a referendum on the Nov. 6 ballot asking voters if they want to change the McHenry County Board to an executive form of government.
On the one hand, we think voters should decide how they want to be governed locally.
On the other, we don’t think a political feud should be the driving force behind seeking such a change. And we have little doubt that Franks’ longstanding feud with County Board Chairman Ken Koehler is part of his motivation for seeking the referendum.
