12_oct_franks-reinertThe Illinois REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) Trustees recommend you vote for Jack Franks for McHenry County Board Chairman and REALTOR® John Reinert for District 2 of the McHenry County Board on Nov. 8.

Franks and Reinert have been identified by their local associations and by RPAC as REALTOR® champions. In other words, they are for business, private property rights, low taxes and economic growth. Their bids to get elected are termed Opportunity Races.

Since 1998, Franks has represented McHenry County voters as state representative of the 63rd House District. A lifelong resident of McHenry County, Franks won reelection in 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014. His current committee assignments are:

  • State Government Administration (chairman);
  • International Trade & Commerce (vice chair);
  • Public Utilities;
  • Tollway Oversight; and
  • Veterans’ Affairs.

In May 2016, Franks announced he was not seeking reelection and instead was running for chairman of the McHenry County Board. For more information about Franks, visit his website: http://franksformchenry.com/

Reinert is one of four candidates running for two open positions representing District 2 of the McHenry County Board.
