Musical Board Chairs?

shoo bee doo bee dooTruisms come and go -- and this one is as true as they go:
As goes the McHenryCountyBlog, so goes the nation.
But, look out, there's a new truism in town:
When your LakeCountyEye talks, the public sector pensioners listen.
As soon as State Rep Jack Franks filed a Bill to mandate the direct election of the McHenry & Lake County Board Chairpersons, your LakeCountyEye was all over it like tread on a waffle. No Springfield Bill gets out of committee without the prior approval of the McHenryCountyBlog. And as readers of this blog are eggotistically aware, your LakeCountyEye went directly to the source for their verdict ...
Ballotations for the Chairman, Now?
Less than 48 hours later an acknowledged spokesperson from the McHenryCountyBlog responded on this blog with a prepared statement.

Your LakeCountyEye will not divulge whether of not the McHenryCountyBlog is all thumbs-up or thumbs-down over Franks's Bill. Operatives are directed to that blog, to learn what McHenry County's blog-of-record thinks of the idea ...
Actually, that would be so much fun to watch, I might be talking myself into favoring Franks' idea.
What Is Jack Franks' End Game?
In related news, the Lake County Board issued a statement saying that its voters are not ready for democracy, and condemn those influences from the other side of the border who seek to impose their foreign way of life upon Lake County.

@anon 10:05, yes, I do. I don't have a throw away email account, and am not full of enough courage to just write my name. Not sure I'm ready to go down the rabbit hole...yet.
