Franks sounds a warning on executive referendum
WOODSTOCK – If the McHenry County Board goes through with providing information on the upcoming county executive referendum, the state representative who has raised its ire for spearheading the effort feels it’s only fair he write it.
State Rep. Jack Franks, D-Marengo, asked board members in a Thursday letter to be the author of any educational materials the board decides to release on the referendum. The letter, written to Chairman Ken Koehler and copied to all County Board members and State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi, also served as a warning for the board not to overstep its legal bounds and cross the line into advocacy against it.
“If the County Board is contemplating this type of expenditure, I would request, as the principal proponent of the referendum in question, to write the information that would be disseminated for and against the proposition,” Franks wrote.
