All Politics *IS* Local: @RepJackFranks And His Ice Cream Socials

Over on the McHenry County Blog, Cal Skinner notes that State Representative Jack Franks announced his set of "Ice Cream Socials" across his district. 

From the release:
Warm summer nights in McHenry County often bring together friends and neighbors for refreshing ice cream and lively conversation. In the spirit of that tradition, state Rep. Jack Franks, D-Marengo, will host four Ice Cream Socials in July. 
The Ice Cream Socials will be held in conjunction with community events across McHenry County. Audience members at the Wonder Lake Ski Show, band concerts in McHenry and Woodstock, and patrons of the annual Fay’s BBQ Fundraiser for the M.O.R.E. Center in Marengo will have the opportunity to engage with Rep. Franks while enjoying a free cup of ice cream.
State Representative Jack Franks is taking the campaign seriously this summer and is doing what good politicians need to do:  go to where the people are and not forget about why they're elected.  Too often we see "Potomac Fever" from our Congress-people and on occasion we see the same "Sangamon Fever" out of our State Representatives and State Senators.

Franks, for all his flaws including his support of Speaker Mike Madigan, understands retail politics and works his district hard each year.   We need more hard-working elected officials who work as hard back home.
