  • Franks is fiscal hawk Feb 18, 2011 9:08 PM
    It’s unfair to lump State Rep. Jack Franks into a category of Democrats who keep perpetuating the status quo. He deserves recognition for leading the fight against tax increases.

  • Revoke licenses of bad docs Feb 17, 2011 8:45 AM
    Illinois allows physicians who are convicted of sex crimes and other unprofessional, illegal and immoral behaviors, to continue practicing medicine, as well as keeps those records confidential. Rep. Jack Franks is working to right this wrong with a bill that mandates the revocation of a physicians’ license if convicted of a sex offense, public aid offense or substance abuse.

  • John O’Neil a public servant Oct 28, 2010 10:58 AM
    I cannot let the letter slandering John O’Neil that appeared in the Oct. 20 Fencepost go unanswered. O’Neil is the Republican candidate for state representative in the 63rd District. The Oct. 20 letter referred to John as “just another politician looking to make a living at taxpayers’ expense.”

  • Problems with O’Neil’s positions Oct 28, 2010 10:56 AM
    One can learn much about a candidate’s position by referencing their responses to Project Vote Smart questionnaire. State representative candidate John O’Neil does not believe in any limits on campaign contributions by anyone to any elected official. He thinks it’s acceptable for millions of dollars to be thrown at elected officials by special interest groups.

  • O’Neil a bad bet for 63rd House seat Oct 23, 2010 9:16 AM
    I met John O’Neil, who is running for state representative, who said he was qualified for the office based on his experience as a local school board member. I asked if he had children and what grades they were in, and was shocked to learn that he home schools his children instead of sending them to the school in which he was elected to help run.

  • Franks fights for people, not party Oct 23, 2010 9:42 AM
    The media is reporting that the nation is seeing the economy recover, but the truth is that average Americans are still struggling day to day. These are difficult times that we live in, and we need our representatives to keep the interests of the voters in mind.

  • State House District 63: Franks Oct 18, 2010 9:12 AM
    If Democrat Jack Franks is known for anything in the legislature and in truth, he is known for a lot it is for his frank willingness to challenge the powers that be whenever he sees something in government he doesn't like.

  • Franks a man of the people Mar 8, 2011 4:20 PM
    I want to publicly commend State Rep. Jack Franks for the great work he does for the people of McHenry County. Because of many people's frustration with the state of Illinois, Rep. Franks unfortunately gets lumped together with the rest of the state's politicians and their poor reputations.

  • State Rep. Jack Franks outspending challenger 100-1 Oct 29, 2010 6:37 AM
    If Republican John O'Neill manages to unseat incumbent state Rep. Jack Franks in the 63rd District, it won't be because of O'Neill's fundraising strength.
