To the Editor:
At this time, politics get particularly rough, though one wonders if there have been any smooth times in recent years. It is the moment to speak out for those who have demonstrated the strength of character, service to the people and honor we need to help us move forward.
In my opinion, Jack Franks is one. He has led the McHenry County Board through tough times, demonstrated his character with his friends and enemies and even distributed excess reserves to many families in this very difficult time.
He and his wife, Debby, are generous supporters of the Marengo food pantry and he doesn't hesitate to help others in need without fanfare. Help him now and show your support by voting for this fine person.
