Most won’t say whether they have spoken with Griffin or anyone on his team about what financial support might be coming. – Taylor Avery (COMMENT: Major donors can have a tremendous influence on candidates.

— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD: Suburban officials say threats to election workers are rare, but ‘we have to be ready’ – Jake Griffin
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “I can’t say that we have not received any threats, but most of them did not cross the line,” said DuPage County Clerk Jean Kaczmarek. “The concern I have is that the disinformation that’s been said about our county is what’s been said in the counties and states that have received those more serious threats. And while we have not experienced any staff departures, they have expressed concern about the environment that’s created.” . . . And the vast majority blame the spread of misinformation through social media for the growing animosity toward election officials, according to the study. . .Just because threats to suburban election officials haven’t risen to the level seen elsewhere doesn’t mean it won’t happen, Kaczmarek argued. “We have to be ready,” she said. She noted the national political climate has an effect locally. DuPage County normally carries standard liability insurance for any accidents at polling sites, but the county is not able to secure that insurance this year because of the Jan. 6, 2021, riots at the U.S. Capitol. “The timing of this policy’s placement was just after the riots on the capital building (that) happened on January 6, 2021, causing carriers to consider that the likelihood of civil unrest would also increase the risk specifically at polling places,” one insurance agent wrote in an email to Kaczmarek’s office. “Because of that, many carriers have decided to exit the market space for special event coverage for polling places.” Tuesday, recently appointed Director of the Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management Craig Dieckman gave a presentation to the DuPage County Board’s Judicial and Public Safety Committee on election security procedures. He said guarding against cyber attacks, combating disinformation campaigns and maintaining continuity of operations at polling sites are the chief priorities of his agency heading into the primary and general elections this year. “It’s our obligation to make sure we do everything we can to have a safe place when people go to vote,” said Julie Renehan, the committee’s chairwoman. “I think what we heard is there are many precautions and protocols going on behind the scenes to ensure that happens.” Over the past few years, it’s been elected or appointed officials who have faced a greater number of threats. A Chicago man was convicted in 2016 of threatening former Republican state Rep. Jeanne Ives of Wheaton. An Oswego man received jail time for threatening former DuPage County Board Chairman Robert Schillerstrom in a series of phone calls in 2015. In 2020, current DuPage County Board Chairman Dan Cronin received a series of threatening voicemail messages that led to the arrest of a Chicago man. . .Kaczmarek said her office is seeking a significant pay hike for DuPage County election workers, most of whom receive $130 to work Election Day. DuPage is home to the second-highest number of registered voters in the state. Kaczmarek said she is proposing the hike at Tuesday’s county board meeting to increase pay in excess of $200. “We are behind a lot of other counties,” she said.)
