— OUTSTANDING: Bolingbrook board was blunt — no cannabis businesses in village – ALEX ORTIZ
https://www.theherald-news.com/2019/08/14/bolingbrook-board-was-blunt-no-cannabis-businesses-in-village/av0vrpj/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The village of Bolingbrook Board of Trustees voted Tuesday night to prohibit cannabis business establishments within its boundaries. The trustees voted 5-1 in favor of the prohibition. Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar said he was in favor of prohibiting cannabis businesses in the village and decried how the state government passed the legislation to legalize it. “I philosophically have a real problem with governments which have turned to drugs and gambling to balance their budgets,” he said. “That’s what the state’s come to.” The village’s ordinance cited the state’s Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act, which allows municipalities to prohibit adult-use cannabis business establishments. Ken Teppel, the village’s public safety director, spoke about the Bolingbrook Police Department’s opposition to allowing cannabis businesses in town. He also talked about the challenges posed to police departments in other states that have already legalized recreational cannabis use, like Colorado. For example, Teppel said cannabis businesses have been targets for theft because they deal solely in cash to be in compliance with federal banking laws. He added that, for police, it’s more difficult to investigate such crimes without a paper trail. He also talked about other problems like black markets developing around legal dispensaries, the high potency of the drug nowadays, potential dangers with flammable materials used to grow the plant, and trying to develop a test for impaired drivers who have used the drug. During public comments, the opinions among the handful of residents who spoke were mixed. Trustee Bob Jaskiewicz was the only “no” vote. He said it was a mistake to not have a public hearing before holding a vote on the prohibition. “I want us to consider other points as to why a dispensary would be a good thing,” Jaskiewicz said. Claar told Jaskiewicz to take up the issue with state legislators because, unlike other states, which held a referendum, Illinois “chose to ignore the public” and didn’t ask voters. Claar said lawmakers were already discussing a possible trailer bill to clarify and fix issues with the initial law that passed. The mayor also made sure to emphasize that the ordinance was only prohibiting commercial businesses selling cannabis and not recreational use of the drug. Trustee Mary Alexander Basta made the point that the ordinance could be revised in the future. Recreational cannabis use and possession will be legal in Illinois starting Jan. 1, 2020.)

GLEN ELLYN PATCH
— Recreational Pot Up For Discussion In Glen Ellyn August 19 Do you think recreational marijuana should be sold in Glen Ellyn? – Lisa Marie Farver (DIERSEN: The Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) should pass a resolution against the sale of pot in Milton Township and in the rest of DuPage County like it passed a resolution against video gambling in 2009. Republican Precinct Committeemen in Glen Ellyn should attend Glen Ellyn’s meeting on August 19 and Republican Precinct Committeemen in Wheaton should attend Wheaton’s meeting on August 26. They should call for banning the sale of pot in their municipalities. Past and present MTRCC officers should attend the aforesaid meetings and call for banning the sale of pot. At previous Wheaton City Council meetings, Bob Cherry, B. J. Slinger, Tim Whelan, and I have called for Wheaton to ban the sale of pot. At previous DuPage County Board meetings, Dick Furstenau and I have called for DuPage County to ban the sale of pot in the unincorporated parts of DuPage County.)

August 14 Morning Edition

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— The August Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) monthly meeting is this evening at the Holiday Inn in Carol Stream. The social hour starts at 6:00 PM and the meeting starts at 7:00 PM. SEE: http://dupagegop.org/calendar-3/ 

I will be signing in as a candidate. I am a candidate to be appointed to fill Wheaton’s West District City Council vacancy. The other six Republican candidates are Edward Ahern, Jeffery Antonelli, Angela Blatner, Nancy Harding, Mark Kmeicik, and Robert McNeily.

Hopefully, all of the aforesaid seven candidates will a) attend meeting, b) announce their candidacies, c) and seek the support of the eighteen Republican Precinct Committeemen who represent Wheaton’s West District. Those eighteen Precinct Committeemen are Joseph Caruso, Dave Diersen, Thomas Elsner, Arthur Grant, Ralph Hinkle, Marty Keller, John Kocinski, Robert Krzyzewski, Michael Hinsdale, Jae Kwon, Robert Larsen, Connor McCarthy, Robert McNeily, Ronald Menna, Elizabeth Tatro, James Ryan, Mark Thomas, and Herbert Wehling.

Hopefully, MTRCC will gather relevant information about the aforesaid seven candidates, provide that information to the aforesaid eighteen Precinct Committeemen, and host a candidate forum. The goal of providing information on the candidates and hosting a candidate forum is to help the aforesaid eighteen Precinct Committeemen recommend to Wheaton’s City Council the best possible candidate to be appointed to fill the Wheaton West District City Council vacancy.

In my opinion, the following information about all 10 candidates should be disclosed: How long they have lived in Wheaton, how long they have lived in Wheaton’s West District, their work experience, their education, their professional certifications and licenses, their memberships in professional associations, why they want to be appointed to fill the vacancy, what they believe the three most important issues are that Wheaton needs to address in the next 2 years and how those issues those issues should be addressed, their political affiliation and activities, their civic activities, if they would vote for or against banning the sale of pot in Wheaton, what their position is on Wheaton’s Roosevelt Road corridor, if they would vote for or against requiring employers in Wheaton to use E-Verify, and what they have done that demonstrates they can carry out typical city council functions. In my opinion, Republican Precinct Committeemen in Wheaton’s West District should have the above information.

At Wheaton’s City Council meeting on Monday, August 19, 2019, its members will go into executive session to deliberate on the 10 candidates who have applied. Because, in that session, they will be reviewing the documents that the 10 candidates have submitted, Wheaton has denied my FOIA request for those documents.

According to MTRCC’s bylaws (http://www.miltongop.org/about-mtrcc/by-laws), “When a position within Milton Township is declared vacant, the MTRCC shall meet within forty (40) days of the declaration of vacancy to recommend an individual to fill such vacancy. The recommendation shall be decided at a convention of the Organization by a majority vote of the Organization through a written ballot.” It would be great if MTRCC would host a candidate forum for the aforesaid seven Republican candidates.” I urge MTRCC to do the aforesaid concerning Wheaton’s West District City Council vacancy.

Many Republican candidates, elected officials, and party leaders routinely attend MTRCC meetings. I hope that the following will attend MTRCC’s August 14 meeting and a candidate forum if one is held: a) Wheaton’s mayor and City Council members, b) 6th Congressional District candidates Jeanne Ives and Evelyn Sanguinetti; c) DuPage County Recorder candidates Ron Almiron and Babette Holder; d) Illinois officials including Amy Grant; e) DuPage County officials including Robert Berlin, Fred Bucholz, Daniel Cronin, Pete DiCianni, Grant Eckhoff, Timothy Elliott, Robert Grogan, Gwen Henry, Richard Jorgensen, Christopher Kachiroubas, Robert Larsen, Paula McGowen, James Mendrick, Al Murphy, Sean Noonan, Jeffrey Redick, Darlene Ruscitti, Timothy Whelan, and Jim Zay; f) Milton Township officials including Sal Falbo, Chris Heidorn, Gail Hinkle, Marty Keller, Chris LeVan, Gary Muehlfelt, David Molitor, John Monino, and Yada Nathwani; g) Wheaton Park District officials including Michael Benard; h) School District 200 officials; and i) College of DuPage officials including Annette Corrigan, Christine Fenne, Heidi Holan, and Frank Napolitano.

It will be extremely interesting to see which of the seven candidates are endorsed by which of the aforesaid candidates, elected officials, and party leaders, and especially which candidates Ives and Sanguinetti might endorse because they both have served on Wheaton’s City Council.

Further, I will be asking a) Susan Fitch, Chris Zaruba, and other Wheaton City Council members who attend the meeting to brief the meeting’s attendees on actions being taken to ban the sale of pot in Wheaton and b) Grant Eckhoff, Tim Elliott, Bob Larsen, Jim Zay, and other DuPage County Board members who attend the meeting to brief the meeting’s attendees on actions being taken to ban the sale of pot in DuPage County’s unincorporated areas.

Further, I will be asking the meeting’s attendees to join me, Bob Cherry, Dick Furstenau, B.J. Singer, and Tim Whelan in urging DuPage County, Wheaton, Carol Stream, Glendale Heights, Lombard, Downers Grove, Naperville, Warrenville, West Chicago, and the rest of the 38 municipalities in DuPage County to ban the sale of pot.

Further, I will be asking the DuPage County Republican Central Committee, its Chairman Marty Keller, MTRCC, and the other eight Republican township party organizations in DuPage County to urge DuPage County and the 38 municipalities in DuPage County to ban the sale of pot. – Dave Diersen

— FEBRUARY 22, 2018 FLASHBACK: How to Identify Your Competitors in 6 Steps – Amy Biggart (DIERSEN: Things that differentiate my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails from what my direct competitors put out include: a) my emails highlight the sources, titles, authors, and links of articles posted on websites, b) they come out each and every morning and each and every evening, c) they include links only to articles that are less than 12 hours old with only rare exceptions, d) they contain no advertising, e) they are free, and f) they are not manipulated or dominated by any “major donors” because I donate all the time and money necessary to put them out. However, because I am a member of the Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC), and therefore the DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), and the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), my critics/opponents do everything that they can to get MTRCC, DCRCC, and IRP to punish me. Previously, they did everything that they could to get TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee, Illinois Center Right Coalition, and American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter to punish me.)

— Wheaton set for annual 4th of July celebration (DIERSEN: Please stop by the Republican table at Wheaton’s Graf park before the fireworks start on July 3. So far, Wheaton’s 2019 Independence Day Parade Republican entries are Bob Berlin, Amy Grant, Evelyn Sanguinetti, Chris Kachiroubas, Ann Celine Walsh, and Milton Township Republican Central Committee. All $2,500 has been pledged toward the $2,500 “DuPage County Republicans” sponsorship commitment: $500 from Roger Claar; $250 each from Berlin, Sanguinetti, Phil Suess, and Tim Whelan; and $100 each from Michael Barbier, Grant Eckhoff, Tim Elliott, Grant, Chris Heidorn, Babette Holder, Jeanne Ives, Marty Keller, Bob Larsen, and Walsh. I am in the process of hand-delivering 500 flyers (printed courtesy of Alpha Graphics) to the residences and businesses on the parade route that include the Republican entries in the parade, the sponsor’s names, and the amounts they contributed. In addition, contributors are invited to be at the Republican table at fireworks on July 3.)
https://www.mysuburbanlife.com/2019/06/26/wheaton-set-for-annual-4th-of-july-celebration/aqpba0/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Wheaton Independence Day Parade is a long-standing tradition that draws thousands of people and will display more than 90 parade entries this year. This year’s parade theme, Home Grown, celebrates those who founded the town in the 1830s and those who continue to make it their home. The celebration starts at 5 p.m. July 3 in Graf Park, 1855 Manchester Road, with a carnival, DJ, food vendors and activities for all ages. The park district will have its annual fireworks display at 9 p.m. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and picnic blankets. Parking will be available in the park just south of Monroe Middle School and also in the western fields of the fairgrounds. Sparklers and smoke bombs are prohibited. Event coordinators strongly advise no dogs in the park because of the nature of the event. The celebration continues at 10 a.m. July 4 with the Wheaton Park District and the city of Wheaton’s annual Fourth of July parade, led by grand marshals from the Wheaton Lions Club. Due to planned city improvements, the parade route will be altered significantly this year. Staging will be located in the same location near Main Street and Hawthorne Boulevard. The parade will head south on Main Street and turn west on Union Avenue, then will turn south at Wheaton Avenue, where the judging stand will be located. The parade will conclude at Seminary and Wheaton avenues.)

DORFMAN  (DIERSEN: Your mayor and your city council members and your county board chairman and your county board members should ASAP call for a vote on the sale of pot and ASAP announce that they will vote against the sale of pot. I urge Wheaton Mayor Phil Suess and Wheaton City Council members Michael Barbier, Erica Bray-Parker, Suzanne Fitch, John K.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In Lake Bluff, village board members were scheduled to address a resolution in late June that would prohibit businesses wanting to offer recreational marijuana products from starting up in the village until officials can craft and agree on appropriate regulations, village officials said recently. Lake Forest officials, meanwhile, are planning to host an upcoming workshop, where, they said, they plan to address different issues related to recreational marijuana use. As part of the resolution in Lake Bluff, village board members would direct the Lake Bluff Plan Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals to make recommendations to the board regarding possible regulations affecting recreational cannabis businesses. “State law requires that we allow medical cannabis facilities, but we have the power to ban recreational cannabis facilities,” said Glen Cole, assistant to the village administrator in Lake Bluff. Medical marijuana dispensaries already are permitted to operate in certain portions of the village once a special-use permit is granted, Cole said. During a meeting in early June, Village President Kathy O’Hara said officials plan to consult with village attorneys as they go about developing regulations and weigh the ramifications of legalized recreational marijuana use in Illinois. “We are going to push the pause button,” O’Hara said. “I am going to be bringing back to the board for discussion what best fits our community and where we want to go with this.” The upcoming workshop in Lake Forest also should allow city officials the opportunity to weigh the possible effects of legalized marijuana use in the community, said City Manager Jason Wicha. “We’ll see some policy direction from the city council on how they want to proceed,” Wicha said of the meeting. Wicha said Lake Forest staff members still are reviewing the specifics of the bill that awaits Pritzker’s signature, but he said the city believes provisions are in the bill that could prevent marijuana dispensaries from coming to Lake Forest. “I know that is something that the council is going to want to look at,” he said.)

DAILY HERALD
— Legalized marijuana and the workplace – Marcy Traxler (DIERSEN: The more pot that you use, the more impaired that you are. The more booze that you drink, the more impaired that you are. Pot impairs you far longer than booze. Employers should not tolerate any kind of impairment.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/business/20190620/legalized-marijuana-and-the-workplace
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Used versus impaired So how will this impact a business and how it approaches policy? Illinois statute prohibits discrimination against employees for testing positive for marijuana. The upshot is employers cannot rescind a job offer or terminate an employee for a positive drug test. How will this impact employers that want to hire or fire at will? For employers, a key issue involving marijuana is not legalization, but workplace safety. The takeaway is that it is more important than ever to make the distinction between an employee having used marijuana versus the employee being impaired on the job. Having come from an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) background, I think the most progressive companies have addressed this very issue and developed Drug Free Work Place and Safety Program policies to include training for supervisors to observe and document employees that have unsafe practices or exhibit behaviors and signs of drug use.)

FED SMITH
— Bill Resurfaces to Expedite Process of Firing Federal Employees – Ian Smith (DIERSEN: Constructively, to force a federal employee to take early retirement or to resign is to fire that employee. My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49. My Democrat GAO and IRS superiors forced me to take a $19,568 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me to resign in 1969 when I was 20. Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes use the aforesaid to hint/imply/argue/shout that given all the work experience, education, professional certifications, and the professional license that I have, I must have been far worse than an “underperforming federal employee,” I must have been a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, and even worse things. Needless-to-say, I should sue my critics/opponents, sue their operatives, and sue their dupes.) 
https://www.fedsmith.com/2019/06/20/bill-resurfaces-expedite-process-firing-federal-employees/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Government employees should be held to the same standards as private sector employees, yet it is nearly impossible to fire bureaucrats for failing to do their jobs,” said Senator Perdue. “Right now, it can take more than a year to fire or replace a civil service employee, even for poor performance or misconduct. With a $22 trillion debt crisis, we cannot afford to hold onto bureaucrats who aren’t doing their jobs. Since President Trump took office, more than 4,300 bad actors have been fired, demoted, or suspended at the VA. It’s time to expand those efforts and address problems across the entire federal government.” Congressman Loudermilk added, “Working for the United States federal government is an honor and privilege, and most federal employees cherish this opportunity and desire to serve the American people. Unfortunately, many underperforming federal employees feel entitled to their positions and treat them as their right. The solution to this issue is the MERIT Act. I thank my friend and colleague, Senator Perdue, for leading the charge on this important reform.” It was last introduced in 2018 in both the House and Senate but ultimately failed to advance.)

SPUTNIK NEWS
— Trump Pentagon Nominee a Return to Someone With ‘Limited Military Experience’ (DIERSEN: How much military experience do you have? I have none, but by the end of 1988, I had 3 years experience auditing IRS and almost 9 years experience working for IRS. At the start of 1989, a) to retaliate against me for my becoming an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, b) to punish me for my avoiding the draft, and c) to punish my wife and I for giving up trying to have children, not adopting, and not becoming foster parents, my Democrat GAO superiors abruptly and rudely threw me off audits of IRS and assigned me to an audit of the Department of Defense 1990 ammunition budget request in Rock Island. SEE: https://www.gao.gov/assets/150/148194.pdf Instead of me, my GAO superiors should have assigned one of my many coworkers who had military experience and wanted the assignment. They painted me as having an unfair advantage to work on audits of IRS because I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years. Overwhelmingly, my GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates had very little or no prior work experience when GAO hired them.)
