The pandemic has only made it harder: ‘Either my work suffers or my school suffers.’ – ELYSSA CHERNEY (DIERSEN: I could afford to attend UIC 1966-1968 and NIU 1969-1970 a) because my outstanding parents provided me room and board 1966-1968, weekends during my first semester at NIU in 1969, and the summer of 1969 and b) because I saved money for college and for three new cars from what I earned washing dishes 1964-1966; cleaning golf shoes, chipping slag, and pumping gasoline in 1966; delivering mail 1966-1969; and working on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970.)

When I was younger, my critics/opponents painted me as being a rich kid a) because my parents sent me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961 and then to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 to stay with the Missouri Synod and b) because I bought a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint in 1966. In my defense, I paid for that car with money that I earned washing dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights 1964-1966.)

In addition, Biden and I are Corvette owners. But my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes promote discrimination against those who have demographics like Trump, Biden, and I do. But look at all the votes that Trump and Biden got.

HINSDALE PATCH
— Feds Sue Hinsdale Over Fair Housing Village’s effort to close sober living house violates Fair House Act, feds say. – David Giuliani (DIERSEN: Questions to ask City Council candidates: If elected, would you encourage or discourage the following: putting addiction centers in residential neighborhoods, reparations, BLM, LGBTQ, dependency on government, dependency on charity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, more gun controls, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and/or age discrimination?)
https://patch.com/illinois/hinsdale/feds-sue-hinsdale-over-fair-housing
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Hinsdale is facing a powerful adversary in its effort to close a house that helps men with addictions — the U.S. Justice Department. On Tuesday, the federal government sued Hinsdale, one of Chicago’s wealthiest suburbs, and alleged the village violated the Fair Housing Act in its handling of the sober living house. Reached by phone, Village President Tom Cauley, who is mentioned frequently in the lawsuit, declined to comment, but would not say why. In July 2019, the Trinity Sober Living House opened at 111 N. Grant St. Neighbors started complaining before it opened. Last August, the village called for the house’s closure. Officials said the sober living house was a commercial operation in a residential neighborhood. The village also argued that with 10 people, the house violated the village’s rule for single-family zones — no more than three unrelated people in a house. After finding out earlier this month that a federal lawsuit would be filed, village officials dropped the argument about the house being a commercial operation, the lawsuit said. But it stuck to its ban on more than three unrelated people in a house. According to the lawsuit, on July 13, 2019, a Hinsdale resident emailed Cauley about the plan for the sober living house. The resident said neighbors were “very worried” about “having people with these issues living as a group in our neighborhood. Any restrictions on this within proximity to Monroe Elementary?” Neighbors also approached Michael Owens, the house’s founder. One accused Owens of bringing “alcoholics, drug addicts and pedophiles into our neighborhood.” Amid the uproar, Cauley wrote Owens on July 18, saying it had come to his attention that Trinity bought the property and intended to use it for 10 unrelated people. Cauley, an attorney, called it a “prohibited use,” but did not refer Owens to the “reasonable accommodation” process under the Fair Housing Act, the lawsuit said. Owens asked to meet with Cauley, but got no response. Instead, he had a July 30, 2019, meeting with the village’s attorney, Lance Malina, and two other top village officials. He gave them a tour of the house and told them the house would not admit sex offenders. At the close of the meeting, Malina told Owens about the reasonable accommodation process, which is intended for groups with disabilities, including those with addictions. In a later email, Owens asked whether he could have up to three residents in the meantime. Malina said he could not because the house was being marketed commercially. Days later, the village held a meeting of Hinsdale residents to share what officials were doing about the sober living house. Trinity was not invited, according to the lawsuit. Shortly after, Cauley sent a letter addressed “Dear Residents,” stating the village saw the sober living house as a prohibited use. The letter was not sent to Trinity, which learned about it more than a month later, according to the lawsuit. On Aug. 7, Trinity’s attorney, Steve Polin, sent a letter seeking a reasonable accommodation for the house under the Fair Housing Act. Contrary to the village’s practice, the administration did not forward the reasonable accommodation request to the Village Board, the lawsuit said. Instead, the next day, the village sued Trinity in DuPage County Court. As part of that litigation, a judge in June eliminated the limit on people in the house, citing the federal investigation, which Patch had written about. According to the lawsuit, Hinsdale’s argument that Trinity was a commercial operation and thus prohibited would essentially ban all group homes for people with disabilities. “This is because, for most group homes, the residents pay rent, the agency operating the group home receives compensation for the care and services being provided, most residents must attend employment or day services programs during the day, and residents are monitored by the provider agency.” Even under the village’s new position, the lawsuit said, only the smallest group homes would be allowed. During the county court proceedings, the village did not inform the judge that it received or intended to consider a reasonable accommodation request, according to the federal lawsuit. In a September 2019 interview, Village President Tom Cauley told the Hinsdalean that the village’s effort involved no fair housing violations. Trinity is in a zone where no more than three unrelated people can live in a house. Cauley told the Hinsdalean that “if we had 10 nuns living there, we would have a problem under the zoning code.” The village’s attorney, Malina, did not return a call for comment.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Epstein, a Democrat, is also a Harvard-educated behavioral psychologist and the former editor-in-chief of Psychology Today. He’s also the guy who long ago sounded the alarm about the threat posed to our republican form of government by Google and its Big Tech brethren. None of this comes as a surprise to our Mark Alexander, who’s been following Dr. Epstein’s work for years. In mid-2019, Epstein testified before Congress, and the substance of his testimony lent support to what every fair-minded person who’s ever done a politics-related Google search has long suspected: “Data I’ve collected since 2016 show that Google displays content to the American public that is biased in favor of one political party — a party I happen to like, but that’s irrelevant. … Democracy as originally conceived, cannot survive Big Tech as currently empowered.” Too bad no one on Capitol Hill took him seriously.)

https://thetechportal.com/2020/11/25/twitter-to-start-providing-verification-badges-to-authentic-accounts-from-early-2021-asks-for-public-feedback-on-policy/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Twitter has announced that it will start its account reverification process once again in 2021, providing ‘blue checks’ to users. In 2017, Twitter had ceased providing verification badges to its account holders, even if they were genuinely noteworthy and a public figure. The decision was taken surrounding an incident in which the social media giant had verified an account belonging to Jason Keller, a white supremacist who organized a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. As a result of this the company had to face a wave of criticism. It defended itself by making its policies more public, saying that the company provided blue verification badges to anyone of “public interest”. However, critics still mauled this move, saying that while genuine figures of public interest were on wait to get their accounts verified, verifying the account of a white supremacist was not something that should be of public interest. Therefore, in November 2017, Twitter ceased its action of verifying accounts on its platform. A year later, the social media platform informed that it was putting its work on the verification of accounts on indefinite hold. This time it said that this decision is being taken so that the company could direct its resources and focus on the integrity of the upcoming 2020 US elections.)

HARVARD POLITICAL REVIEW
— The Importance of Local Elections – Matthew Gross (DIERSEN: Each and every candidate for government and political offices should be asked “If elected, would you encourage or discourage the following: reparations, BLM, LGBTQ, dependency on government, dependency on charity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, more gun controls, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and/or age discrimination?”)

BUZZFEED NEWS
— 1 In 3 Americans Didn’t Vote. Should We Force Them To Next Time? Advocates for compulsory voting in the US are looking for a state to be an electoral guinea pig. They said forcing everyone to vote would fix a lot of problems. – Julia Reinstein (DIERSEN: How informed are the following about government and political news and commentary: your Republican Precinct Committeeman/Captain, the leaders of your Republican township/ward party organization, the leaders of your Republican county party organization, your representative on the Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee, the IRP officers, and Republican candidates on ballots in your precinct?)
https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/juliareinstein/us-compulsory-voting-mandatory
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But it could also help people become more informed voters, said Rapoport, the former Connecticut secretary of state. “If you’re a principal of a high school or a superintendent, and every 18-year-old was required to vote, would that make you more likely to do civic education as part of the curriculum? I think it would,” said Rapoport. “If you’re an employer, and every one of your employees was required to vote, would that make you likely to give them time off to participate? I think it would.” This hints at one of the most common objections to compulsory voting: the rather crass assumption that nonvoters are uneducated and ill-informed on politics, and therefore are better off not voting. Nelson of the NAACP LDF unequivocally rejected that argument, calling it “fully disingenuous.” “If people were truly concerned about people voting who aren’t educated, their focus should be on education and not the right to vote,” said Nelson.)

PEW RESEARCH

Better yet, I should sue them. I would focus on a) present and past leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, Illinois, TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Illinois Center Right Coalition, and American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter, b) Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct since 2000, and c) those who I have sued.)
https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2020/04/01/americans-main-sources-for-political-news-vary-by-party-and-age/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Americans turn to a wide range of media outlets for political and election news, but two stand out as especially common sources. In a late 2019 survey conducted as part of Pew Research Center’s Election News Pathways project, Fox News and CNN were named by the largest segments of U.S. adults as their main political news source – 16% and 12%, respectively. Six other news outlets – NPR, NBC News, ABC News, MSNBC, CBS News and The New York Times – were named by at least 2% of adults. The sources named by the remaining 51% of U.S. adults resulted in a long tail of more than 50 other individual brands. . .In addition to asking respondents whether they got political and election news in the past week from each of 30 different sources (selected to represent a range of news media across different platforms), respondents were asked in an open-ended question to write in the one main source they rely on most for this news. Researchers grouped responses together by brand: For example, “NY Times,” “NYT” and “nytimes.com” were all counted as indicating The New York Times. In all, about half (49%) of U.S. adults named one of these eight outlets as their main source for political and election news. The long list of all other individual outlets, named by fewer than 2% of respondents, included larger sources like The Washington Post, the BBC and Rush Limbaugh, as well as more niche sources such as One America News, The Young Turks and individual local newspapers. Some of the remaining respondents named social media sites (4% in total) or a medium without any specific outlet specified (“radio,” “the internet”). Finally, 13% of respondents declined to provide a recognizable news outlet, left the field blank or said they didn’t remember the name of their main news source. You can see a longer list of sources that were mentioned here. Partisanship in Americans’ main sources for political news Partisan alignment emerges in several of the most commonly named main sources for political and election news. Four of the eight sources named by at least 2% of U.S. adults are much more likely to be named by Democrats and independents who lean Democratic than by Republicans and GOP leaners: MSNBC, The New York Times, NPR and CNN. Fox News is the one outlet among these eight that is far more likely to be named by Republicans than by Democrats. Those who name Fox News and MSNBC display roughly the same high levels of partisanship. About nine-in-ten of those whose main source is Fox News (93%) identify as Republican, very close to the 95% of those who name MSNBC and identify as Democrats. Similarly, about nine-in-ten of those who name The New York Times (91%) and NPR (87%) as their main political news source identify as Democrats, with CNN at about eight-in-ten (79%). The three major broadcast news networks – ABC, CBS and NBC – have more of a mix of Democrats and Republicans among those who name these outlets as their main sources for political news. For example, the makeup of those who name NBC News as their main source is 57% Democratic versus 38% Republican.)

— America Is Being Betrayed On Two Fronts
https://www.gopusa.com/?p=98304
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Such treachery is precisely why Chapter 7 of my book “Rules for Defeating Radicals” (Available at Amazon) is characterized as the single most important chapter of the entire work. Its title “RINOs: The Essential Alinsky Fifth Column,” unmasks those so-called Republicans who claim to be “on the right” when convenient, but who always undercut real conservatism at critical junctures. They are often the determining factor in leftist successes against America. Until our side fully grasps who they are, and why they need to be rooted out and sent packing, we can always count on them to do the dirtiest of leftist “dirty work” at the bidding of the Democrats. With the 2020 election theft hardly a “done deal,” and those Americans, including the Trump Team, who seek to uphold the law and Constitution fighting for their lives and the very future of the nation, such a proclamation from the likes of Christie is the ultimate effort to deliver us a fatal stab in the back. It comes on the heels of other similar duplicity from the predictable cadre of RINOs, including the McCain clan, former Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, and Maryland Governor Larry Hogan. The propensity of self-serving and unscrupulous political gamers to swarm like moths towards the seeming brightest lights of power is nothing new. Still, their disloyalty needs to be underscored, and they need to be indelibly tagged as forever untrustworthy. Their willingness to suddenly and loudly proclaim themselves to be the “Second Coming of Ronald Reagan” come the next election cycle is no sign of a “change of heart.” Rather, it further proves their total contempt for the conservative voting base whom they are seeking to con, in preparation for future betrayals. From their perspective, the wholesale theft of the 2020 Presidential Election is really no big deal, and only reflects the ongoing ebb and flow of American politics.)

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2020/11/24/education-divide-deepens-democrats-worry-future-power/6325025002/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Joe Biden described the presidential race as “Scranton versus Park Avenue.” He slammed tax cuts for billionaires. He touted that he would be a state school graduate, not another Ivy Leaguer, in the Oval Office. Months before Election Day, the Biden campaign adopted an economic populist message aimed directly at white working-class voters, convinced they could peel off a small portion of President Donald Trump’s base. Yet despite Biden’s election victory, this demographic – white voters without college degrees – remained just as loyal as ever to the president, defying public polling before the election that suggested Democrats were poised for small inroads. For Biden, wins in battleground states came thanks to growing support in affluent suburbs around cities like Atlanta, Philadelphia and Detroit where the president-elect expanded margins with a new Democratic stronghold: white voters who graduated college. The 2020 election widened the education polarization – a largely urban-rural divide that has come to define American politics, producing a mixed bag for Democrats. “The biggest thing that came out of this election was that education polarization – the gap between college-educated voters and (non-college-educated voters) – actually increased, rather than decreased like the polls predicted it would,” said David Shor, a Democratic polling and data expert who advised liberal political action committees this cycle. “(Democrats) basically treaded water in the least-educated areas and gained a lot in the educated areas.” Even as Biden beat Trump in the popular vote by more than 6 million votes, Democrats aren’t expected to gain control of the Senate, lost several House seats and failed to flip a single state legislature. Their rejection among white working-class voters, particularly in rural areas and small towns, helped lead to the disappointments. Once viewed as the party of working people, Democrats now rely on the Whole Foods shopper. At the same time, Democrats saw support slip among Black voters, their most loyal constituency, and Latino voters. Although Biden won Black voters overwhelmingly 87%-12%, Trump grew his support by 4 percentage points from 2016, according to exit polls. The shift was more significant among Hispanic voters. While Biden still won Latino voters overall, Trump performed 7 percentage points better than four years ago. He improved his margins in 78 out of 100 majority-Latino counties, according to an analysis from POLITICO. For years, Democrats expressed confidence that the country’s increasingly diverse, less-white electorate would give them an edge long-term over Republicans. Now, some in the party have concerns: That relying so heavily on urbanites and suburbanites puts them at a disadvantage electorally to capture the Senate, hold on to the House and retain the presidency. . .The fact Biden still struggled with non-college-educated white voters, according to Grossman, reflects the overall shift toward politics based on social and cultural divisions rather than economic. The same trend is found in European nations like the United Kingdom. With his cultural – not economic – brand of populism, Trump fanned fears about racial equity protests that erupted in cities. He pushed for “law and order” during the campaign, slammed the Black Lives Matter movement, and accused Democrats of being soft on violence and anti-police. He warned Biden would turn the U.S. into a “socialist” country and accused the Democrat of wanting to take away Americans’ guns. Trump even said, “There will be no God” if Biden were elected. “Voters are more associated with the party that they share social and cultural views with rather than necessarily economic policy opinions,” Grossman said.)

FAST COMPANY
— 6 questions to ask to find out if you’re an ethical leader The director of Ethical Imperatives contends that ethical leaders possess six traits that command, not demand, loyalty. – YONASON GOLDSON (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents demand blind loyalty to them and to them only.)
https://www.fastcompany.com/90568314/6-questions-to-ask-to-find-out-if-youre-an-ethical-leader

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the workplace, bosses and managers may hold absolute power. But how they wield that power will determine the loyalty and, by natural consequence, the productivity of their employees. If you want to be respected as a king and not reviled as a despot, you need to command, not demand, loyalty. And the way your employees see you will depend on whether you conduct yourself according to the principles of ethics. In these complicated times, acting ethically is not as simple as it once was. Social norms change seemingly every day. Often, even the right choice produces collateral damage to real or perceived inequity. What is a leader to do? Loyalty is not acquired by merely making ethical decisions. More fundamentally, it comes from being recognized as an ethical person. The qualities that describe an ethical leader can be enumerated using a convenient acronym: E.T.H.I.C.S. An ethical leader asks the following questions to determine if they exhibit these qualities. . .As an ethical leader, you see your choices through a different lens and recognize that the culture you create will determine your bottom line. Most of all, you naturally command the loyalty that inspires others to join you in your purpose, to share your passion, and to commit themselves to your vision. By promoting a culture of success all around you, the rewards of that success will inevitably follow.)

Before that, they stressed that my Democrat GAO superiors gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $20,157 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. Before that, they stressed that my Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. Before that, they stressed that my Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: But Grogan says he’s undecided as to whether he’ll seek a recount of the ballots cast in the Nov. 3 election. He must wait until after the numbers are certified Tuesday, Nov. 24, before he can make the request. According to the most recent count, Downers Grove Democrat White had 233,121 votes, or 50.01% of the vote, to Grogan’s 233,046. Grogan, a Republican, is seeking his fourth term. County election judges processed and tabulated an additional 3,292 mail and provisional ballots Tuesday, DuPage County Clerk Jean Kaczmarek said in a news release. DuPage County voter turnout was at 75%, with more than 491,000 votes tabulated — 118,000-plus cast on Election Day, 190,000-plus cast at early voting places and nearly 180,000 sent in by mail, she said. Grogan said Thursday he is considering a possible discovery recount, which would look at up to 25% of precincts to determine if there are any irregularities. “I haven’t finalized it yet but honestly, anything dealing with big numbers — whether it’s processing checks here (at the auditor’s office) or counting votes — there’s always an error rate,” he said. . .Gains made by Democrats in DuPage reflect a “political transition” in the historically Republican county, possibly the result of changing demographics or this year a Trump backlash, White said. “(The county auditor race) is not an outlier. It’s part of a pattern that was repeated throughout DuPage County,” he said.)

— GAO: Millions of full-time US workers get government aid – AP (DIERSEN: My father often worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills. He often lamented not having a college degree. That helped motivate me to earn a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) a job-related professional license when I was 32.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Millions of Americans who are working full-time jobs still rely on federal health care and food assistance programs because of low wages, a bipartisan congressional watchdog says. A report from the Government Accountability Office found that about 70% of adult workers participating in Medicaid, which provides health care to low-income Americans, and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also known as food stamps, are working full time. The report was requested by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, who said its findings show an urgent need to raise the federal minimum wage. “At a time when huge corporations like Walmart and McDonald’s are making billions in profits and giving their CEOs tens of millions of dollars a year, they’re relying on corporate welfare from the federal government by paying their workers starvation wages.,” Sanders said in a statement. “This is morally obscene.” He said it was long past time to increase the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $15.)

— State initiative launched to help Illinoisans expunge marijuana arrests, convictions New Leaf Illinois is a state-funded alliance of 20 nonprofits providing free legal representation – RAYMON TRONCOSO (DIERSEN: What if you had been a pot user? If I had been a pot user, I never would have been able to earn a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) a job-related professional license when I was 32. The Post Office would not have hired me in 1966. Firestone Stores would not have hired me in 1970. Oldsmobile would not have offered me a job in 1971. IRS would not have hired me in 1971. GAO would not have hired me in 1980. Using pot shows that you have horrifically bad judgment, that you disrespect the rule of law, and even worse things.)

WASHINGTON POST
— Walmart and McDonald’s have the most workers on food stamps and Medicaid, new study shows – Eli Rosenberg (DIERSEN: One reason why I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old was GAO’s claim that it was “nonpartisan.” I soon learned that claim was false. If I had been a Democrat, my Democrat GAO superiors would not have a) forced me to take a $20,157 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer, b) kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, c) gotten rid of my mentor in 1987, d) given me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, e) failed/refused to promote me beyond GS-13, f) always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and g) forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old.)
https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2020/11/18/food-stamps-medicaid-mcdonalds-walmart-bernie-sanders/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A sizable number of the recipients of federal aid programs such as Medicaid and food stamps are employed by some of the biggest and more profitable companies in the United States, chief among them Walmart and McDonald’s, according to a new report from Congress’s nonpartisan watchdog. The Government Accountability Office undertook the study at the behest of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) to answer questions about the relationship between employers and the federal assistance programs. The report draws on February data from agencies in 11 states that administer Medicaid and the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, better known as SNAP, or food stamps.)

DUPAGE COUNTY ELECTION DIVISION
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: BEYOND DISGUSTING, BEYOND OUTRAGEOUS: According to DuPage County Election Division results, as of November 17, 2020, 6:53:41 PM, for County Auditor, Democrat William ‘Bill’ White had 233,121 (50.01%) votes and Republican Bob Grogan had 233,046 (49.99%) votes. The main reason why Republican candidates in DuPage County lost in this election and in the one 2 years ago and 4 years ago was voters voting for Democrats to punish Trump. The second reason was the Democrat invasion of DuPage County. – Dave Diersen

DAILY HERALD
— OCTOBER 30, 2020 FLASHBACK: Experience an issue in DuPage County auditor race – Scott C. Morgan (DIERSEN: The Daily Herald endorsed Grogan.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20201030/experience-an-issue-in-dupage-county-auditor-race
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Grogan, who has been the county auditor for 12 years, touts both his earlier career as a licensed CPA and his office’s record of innovation. Grogan was the first Illinois auditor to implement an online county checkbook, which allows the public to search and view expenditures. Grogan also emphasizes his creation of an audit hotline, which allows taxpayers to submit reports of fraud, waste or misuse of county resources. “I think that the people of DuPage County will recognize the good work that I started off doing when I first came into office and that I’m continuing to do,” Grogan said during a recent endorsement interview. “I think I’ve operated in this position with integrity and with a very high level of skills and output. “White, meanwhile, says he believes DuPage is at a “political crossroads” and might be aligning more with the Democrats. He hopes to be a part of any potential change. “It’s very well established in the private sector that rotating auditors is simply the sensible thing to do,” White said. “Bringing in a fresh pair of eyes is just inherently good.” White is an attorney who has served on the Downers Grove Village Council and the Community High School District 99 school board. White has also served on the zoning board of appeals in Downers Grove and Woodridge. “I have a track record of getting the Democrats and Republicans to work together,” said White about his time in local government. “My goal as auditor will be to facilitate good government, which I define as transparent.”)
— SEPTEMBER 30, 2020 FLASHBACK: Endorsement: Bob Grogan for DuPage County auditor (DIERSEN: By far, Grogan is the best qualified for the job. Like me, he passed the CPA examination on his first attempt, but his scores on each of the four parts of the examination were much higher than mine. Like me, he is a Certified Fraud Examiner, but he passed the examination on his first attempt while I “grandfathered” in. Grogan is a licensed CPA; I became a licensed CPA in 1981. White is not a Certified Internal Auditor, Certified Government Financial Manager, Certified Financial Services Auditor, or Forensic Accountant, but I am. White does not have auditing experience. I worked for GAO for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $101,176-$131,532/year. I worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $85,084-$96,431/year.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/discuss/20200930/endorsement-bob-grogan-for-dupage-county-auditor
(FROM THE ENDORSEMENT: During his three terms as Du­Page County auditor, Bob Grogan has regularly looked to innovate. The Downers Grove Republican was the first auditor in Illinois to put a county checkbook online. He also was the first to create a transparency portal and an audit hotline. . .While White is well-versed in the duties of the office, we can’t ignore Grogan’s record and credentials. As a licensed CPA and certified fraud examiner, Grogan has the skill and experience to find waste and fraud in county government. Findings made by the auditor’s office during Grogan’s tenure have resulted in savings, firings and, most recently, federal charges against the Bloomingdale Township highway commissioner. Grogan is endorsed.)
