Statements of Support

Frank has shown an ability to listen to and collaborate with people and organizations throughout the region in nonpartisan ways. He is the type of leader we need as we work to build on our successes and overcome our challenges throughout the region. – Tim Rollins, Rockford School District #205 Board Member, Local attorney

We are in the midst of a great communal duality. Together, we are traveling down a calculated path of positive, transformational change, while we also struggle with issues related to widespread poverty, violent crime and the fiscal challenges we face at both the local and statewide levels. We need leaders—just like Frank—who are committed to maintaining our progress toward true transformation as a means of addressing our challenges. 

There is an energy about his approach that you don’t see every election cycle. Frank’s campaign has been one of inclusion, shared values, passion, and all-out preparation on the policy and governance side. His ACT Initiative is exactly what we need to be talking about in local government. These themes are particularly refreshing in our current political climate. All too often in modern politics, campaign rhetoric does not translate into commensurate governance. Frank will honor his pledge to usher in a new era of accountable, collaborative, and transparent government. He will also be a great partner when it comes to working across governments. There is no doubt Frank has the right combination of experience, skills, education, relationships, and character to be a great County Board Chairman.  Ian Linnabary

President, Rockford Park District Board of Commissioners, Chairman, Winnebago County Regional Tourism Facility Board, Secretary, City of Rockford Board of Fire and Police Commissioners, Co-Lead, Transform Rockford Healthy Lifestyles Spoke Team, Partner, Reno & Zahm LLP

Through his work in Next Rockford and as Chairman of the Rock Valley College Board of Trustees, Frank has set the example for his peers in making a difference in our community. He is a dedicated public servant who personifies leadership and integrity. As Winnebago County Board Chairman, he will run a government that is accountable to the people and worthy of their trust.  – Jaime Getchius, 2nd Ward Alderman, City of Rockford


“I met Frank when he was elected to the Rock Valley College Board of Trustees. I have found Frank to be an honest and sincere person. He worked hard to partner with other entities in the area for the common good. As Board Chairman, he tried to bring all sides together for a collective compromise for the best interest of the school and community. My experience with Frank has shown me that he would do an excellent job as County Board Chairman.” – Randy Schafer, Former RVC Trustee
