Letter: Franks is people's champion

To the Editor:

Congratulations to Jack Franks, who is seeking to become the first popularly elected chairman of the McHenry County Board for his deserved and overwhelming show of support. Franks was glowingly endorsed by the Northwest Herald, the Daily Herald and the Chicago Tribune. Almost every mayor in McHenry County as well as business and labor groups also have endorsed Franks.

Franks’ broad appeal is across party lines. It demonstrates that his collaborative, proactive approach to government is what people want. Citizens are tired of ideologues who spout meaningless dogma and refuse to compromise.

McHenry County needs a tax fighter who is on our side, not more tired old politicians gaming the system at taxpayer expense.

Franks always has been the people’s champion. He is the right person at the right time to take McHenry County to a brighter future with lower property taxes and accountable government.
