Letters to the Editor

Independent thinker

To the Editor:

Kudos to state Rep. Jack Franks for listening to his constituents and stopping the millionaire tax.

It took serious guts for Franks to stand up to the most powerful man in the state, Speaker Mike Madigan, and tell him he would not support the tax increase.

Rep. Franks once again proved he is the most independent member of the Legislature. Countless times Franks has stood firm and voted for what is right, not what Springfield politicians want.

We need more independent legislators.

We need to shun partisan politics and support leaders who put our interests first.
