(FROM THE ARTICLE: You might have been asked recently to sign a petition to put a candidate on the ballot in 2020. It’s that season and, though a truism, if good people don’t run for office, democracy doesn’t work. You ought to try running. Here’s how. . .There are four resources in every campaign: people, skill, money and time. Every candidate has at least some of one or more of those resources. . .Today, the guidance would be to build your friends on Facebook. Your friends become volunteers, funders and word-spreaders — your “organization.” Don’t expect any help from your local political party organization, which is likely on life support. You and your friends also have skills, maybe at running a small business, which is basically what a campaign is about — setting up a small business that lasts about one year. You write a campaign plan, much like a business plan. In the plan, you establish a vote-total goal and where those votes are located; how to reach them; how much it will cost, and how to raise the requisite amount. Depending upon the office you seek, your plan might simply be in your head, or in a thick three-ring binder. But there has to be a plan. Political consultant Steve Shearer of Peoria observes that 90 percent of the candidates who spend more money than their opponents win. So, money is important, though obviously not controlling in all cases. . .The Illinois State Board of Elections website offers a complete Candidate’s Guide, which walks you through the filing requirements. The key to success, from Lincoln’s day to the present, is effective strategy (the plan), not tactics (specific tasks). . .Steve says winning is about strategy, message and image. Strategy is based on such factors as analysis of recent voting returns, the issues that move voters in your constituency, both candidates’ (including the opponent) strengths and weaknesses. From that comes the plan to achieve your vote-total goal.)

— When God Is Your Portfolio Manager Biblically responsible investing is booming, as some Christians move to match their faith with their stock buys – Jason Zweig
https://www.wsj.com/articles/when-god-guides-your-investment-portfolio-11570811305
(FROM THE ARTICLE: What would Jesus buy? That question is spreading in the investing world, as evangelicals and other Christians seek investment management and financial planning to match their interpretation of biblical principles. The latest sign of the rise of faith-based investing was the launch of the Inspire International ESG exchange-traded fund on Sept. 30. Its ticker symbol? WWJD, short for the popular expression “What would Jesus do?” Many socially responsible investors favor companies that recruit LGBT workers or donate to Planned Parenthood and the like. By contrast, biblically responsible investors shun companies that profit from or support abortion, pornography, gambling, or LGBT issues. No matter what you believe or how you invest, the advent of this approach highlights the promise and perils of socially responsible investing in general: You can salve your conscience, or you can earn higher returns. It isn’t likely you can do both. Biblically responsible investing, or BRI, is booming as investment managers who are losing assets to index funds strive to find new niches.)

PUBLIC RELATIONS NEWS
— 9 Things About Public Relations They Didn’t Teach You in College – Arthur Solomon (DIERSEN: Of course, I should sue my critics/opponents who hint/imply/argue/shout that I do not honor embargo requests, off-the-record requests, etc.)
https://www.prnewsonline.com/journalists-media-relations
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Embargo Just because a PR firm distributes a press release with the words “Embargoed Until” atop it doesn’t mean that a reporter will honor it. Most will, but it’s always good to have someone speak to the journalist and request she agree to honor the embargo. Scientific studies sent to specific editors are an exception. The same is true for releases saying “For Release After.” PR pros should know that once a release is distributed, when it is used is up to editors. Off-the Record You can tell a media member that something is “off-the-record,” but it doesn’t mean a reporter considers it so. Establish off-the-record ground rules upfront. Specifically, do so prior to conveying information you want kept off-the-record. ‘If you don’t want it reported, don’t say it’ is the advice I always give to executives before interviews or when they socialize with the media. Recall Madeleine Westerhout, President Trump’s personal assistant, who “quit” or was fired after making comments during a dinner. The event supposedly was off-the-record.)

Pollak (DIERSEN: If you were me, how would you react when candidates in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican fail/refuse to keep [email protected] on their press advisory and press release lists? If you were me, how would you react when the aforesaid candidates regularly open my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails and click on links in those emails? 
https://politicalresources.com/for-candidates/campaign-how-to-library/60-campaign-how-to/voter-contact-media-relations/135-how-to-write-campaign-press-releases

(FROM THE ARTICLE: 4. Identify the decision makers at the media that are key for your campaign and develop a relationship with them. Get to know what issues they think are important in the election and feed them information on those issues. . .6. As much as possible, treat all media equally. Don’t discount a reporter because she or he works for a weekly.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Many of us Hispanics will vote again for President Trump. We want legal immigration, immigrants who integrate and assimilate into American society, we don’t want the Balkanization of every city across America. Illegals don’t integrate, they create little enclaves that are drug and crime infested HellHoles as we have here in Chicago. Thats why we Americans of Hispanic descent support President Trump. Build that Wall And Build it Tall! Tired of all these illegals coming here and continuing their criminality on a daily basis. Never vote Democrat unless you want communities festering with ongoing crime sprees like we have in here in Chicago and ignored by the Kleptocratic Democrat party.)

— AUGUST 24, 2003 FLASHBACK: The New Couples Next Door, Gay and Straight – Kate Zernike (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, you are demonized, denigrated, and condemned if you do not promote LGBTQ activity. According to City-Data at http://www.city-data.com/city/Wheaton-Illinois.html, for Wheaton: “Likely homosexual households (counted as self-reported same-sex unmarried-partner households) Lesbian couples: 0.2% of all households Gay men: 0.2% of all households” Those who promote LGBTQ activity in Wheaton stress “OneWheaton.” SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OneWheaton)
https://www.nytimes.com/2003/08/24/us/the-new-couples-next-door-gay-and-straight.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Mark Demich and Kevin Hengst, the couple across the street, are not actually married. Still, in the seven years they have lived in this Chicago suburb they have become like the Buckinghams, the Therrons, the Siconolfis — just another young family in the neighborhood, socializing porch to porch on summer evenings. Choosing the suburbs over the city, Mr. Demich and Mr. Hengst feared they would be The Gay Couple. But even in Wheaton — the home of an evangelical Christian college that until last year prohibited drinking and dancing, the seat of a reliably Republican county — they have found plenty of company. Sixty gay men and lesbians turned out for a wine-tasting a few weeks ago. About 30 played softball at a local park on a recent Saturday. . .In Wheaton, Mr. Demich, 42, said he liked the diversity. ”Of families,” he explained, after a brief pause. ”As opposed to city culture, where everything is around gay life, gay events. That’s not really the way America lives.” When he and Mr. Hengst decided to move to the suburbs, they told their real estate agent, ”Anything but Wheaton,” knowing its conservative reputation. Then they found the perfect house. They hung out a Gay Pride flag, and the neighbors invited them to a block party. The couple said they would bring fruit salad. ”Everyone broke out laughing,” Mr. Weinberg, a contractor, recalled. ”They were making fun of it, which went over well.” Neighborhood children have confronted the couple with questions: Do you two sleep together? Do you have wives? Their parents cringe, but also say they consider themselves, and their children, fortunate. ”Growing up in a good Catholic family, I didn’t even know about anything like this,” Ms. Weinberg said. ”It wasn’t thrown in front of me. These kids, if they don’t see it now, they’re going to see it soon. Living on a block like this is more the real world.” A few blocks over the train tracks, Ladd McClurg and Brad Ogilvie had similar concerns about moving to Wheaton when Mr. Ogilvie accepted a job in town. Mr. McClurg, who grew up in the Mormon faith, being taught that gays were sinners, said he arrived with ”almost a visceral disdain” for Wheaton’s many churches and their members. ”I learned to discover they’re not all bigoted,” Mr. McClurg said. ”There are a lot more variations on the middle out here than I was willing to give credit for.” Still, gays here say they step carefully to avoid causing offense. Betty Burns and Lisa Rechkemmer say they would never hold hands or hang out a pride flag for fear of upsetting their good relations with the neighbors. Mr. Ogilvie and Mr. McClurg display the flag, but resist the urge to hold hands unless they visit the city. One lesbian in Wheaton talked about how accepting her neighbors were, but did not want to be identified by name because she feared the kind of hate calls she and her partner received when they moved in two years ago. Mr. Demich and Mr. Hengst had to go to six or seven churches before they found one that did not preach that homosexuality is a sin. The church they chose, St. Paul Lutheran, had declared itself ”open and affirming” to gays five years ago, but only after a struggle. The decision was prompted not by gay parishioners — there were none at the time — but by a young man who had been baptized and confirmed in the church who died of AIDS. ”It lifted the issue,” said Marianne Avery, a member of the church council that debated the change. ”It was, ‘This is our children, this is not about letting someone in.’ ” Still, a handful of members left. ”What if they show up in drag?” the Rev. Melody Eastman, the pastor, recalled one woman asking.)

August 7 Morning Edition

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Ten have applied to be appointed to fill Wheaton’s West District City Council vacancy. If your representative on your city council resigned, what would you want the process to fill the vacancy to include? I want the city to issue a press release each time it receives an application to fill a vacancy. Those press releases should not only disclose the applicant’s name, but the completed application, resume, and all the documents that were submitted. Residents should have the right to know not only the applicants’ names, but a) how long they have lived in the city and in the district, b) why they want to be appointed to fill the vacancy, c) what they believe the most important issues are that the city needs to address, d) what their opinion is on how those issues could be addressed, e) what their work experience is, f) what their education is, g) what professional certifications and licenses are, and h) what experience do they have carrying out typical city council functions: Review and approve the annual budget; Establish long- and short-term objectives and priorities; Oversee performance of the local public employees; Oversee effectiveness of programs; Establish tax rates; Enter into legal contracts; Borrow funds; Pass ordinances and resolutions; Modify the city’s charter; Regulate land use through zoning laws; Regulate business activity through licensing and regulations; Regulate public health and safety; Exercise the power of eminent domain; Communicate policies and programs to residents; Respond to constituent needs and complaints; and Represent the community to other levels of government. (SEE: https://www.nlc.org/city-councils) There should be at least one well-publicized candidate forum before an appointment is made. Because aforesaid has not happened, and apparently will not happen, for Wheaton’s West District City Council vacancy, yesterday, I filed my application, and today, I filed a Freedom of Information Act request for all the documents that applicants have filed. Needless-to-say, I want to know if the candidates would vote for or against banning the sale of pot in Wheaton. – Dave Diersen

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD WITH BIG COLOR PICTURE IN THE NAPERVILLE SUN: DuPage committee starts discussion on allowing or banning recreational pot sales in unincorporated areas – ALICIA FABBRE (DIERSEN: At DuPage County’s last board meeting, I called for DuPage County to be the first country in Illinois to ban the sale of pot. I will continue to do that at future board meetings. Please join me.) 
https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/naperville-sun/ct-nvs-dupage-board-recreational-pot-st-0807-20190806-6cxgufxut5d2jb2cyjkkprv4dy-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Committee members will continue discussion of the issue on Aug. 20 and could bring a recommendation to the full county board as early as the board’s Sept. 10 meeting. Currently, DuPage County zoning follows state law for medical marijuana facilities. Under those rules, cannabis cultivation centers must be located at least 2,500 feet from schools, group homes and residential areas and dispensaries cannot be closer than 1,000 feet to the same sites. If the same standards were used, there likely would be no place to locate a dispensary or cultivation center in any area under the county’s jurisdiction, said Sam Tornatore, who heads the board’s development committee. “If we decided to mirror current zoning, then essentially it’s game over,” said Tornatore, a Roselle Republican. He and others noted the county would have to adopt less restrictive rules than those for medical marijuana in order to allow dispensaries or cultivation centers in unincorporated areas. State law leaves it to municipalities and counties to decide if they want to put any restrictions in place for recreational marijuana businesses, officials said. “The notion of granting easier access to recreational marijuana than to medical marijuana makes no sense,” said board member Robert Larsen, a Wheaton Republican.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Curran, who said he is scheduling his announcement for Aug. 15, Republican Day at the Illinois State Fair, would become the highest profile name to enter the March 2020 GOP primary contest. So far, four people have filed candidacy statements with the Federal Election Commission — none with more than $1,500 in the bank as of June 30.)

SPOKESMAN REVIEW
— Beggs and Wendle in lead for Spokane City Council president; Fagan lags – Kip Hill and Adam Shanks
http://www.spokesman.com/stories/2019/aug/06/beggs-and-wendle-in-lead-for-spokane-city-council-/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The race for City Council president pitted two sitting members of the council against Wendle, who despite her lack of resume in city politics was able to raise substantial campaign funds. Beggs, an attorney with a background in social justice who has represented the South Hill on the council since 2016, raced to an early lead with 10,718 votes. Wendle finished the night in second place with 9,349 votes. Mike Fagan, who has earned a reputation as the council’s most conservative member, sought a promotion after two terms representing the northeast district but trailed Beggs and Wendle with 8,093. More ballots will be counted on Wednesday. The race also featured Phillip Tyler, former president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP, who has been dogged by accusations of abuse by multiple ex-wives. He came in a distant fourth. Beggs said he was confident heading into Tuesday’s election that he would come out on top.)

https://www.columbian.com/news/2019/aug/06/medvigy-leads-in-clark-county-council-race/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Medvigy has only lived in Clark County since 2016. But equipped with a resume that includes stints as a California Superior Court judge, prosecutor and U.S. Army general, he was appointed in January to fill the District 4 vacancy on the Clark County Council. During his time representing the predominantly rural district, Medvigy has taken conservative positions on taxes and spending. Under the county charter, only residents of that district will vote in that race.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Naperville Councilman Kevin Coyne, who led the effort to prevent the sale of recreational marijuana in the city, said he believes more municipalities will say “no.” “I do feel this should not belong in the suburbs,” Coyne said. The main concerns are a potential increase in traffic crashes, use among teens and consumption of harder drugs, Coyne said. . .The state will issue up to 75 retail dispensary licenses, including 47 in the Chicago metro area, before May 1. Existing medical cannabis dispensaries can apply for early approval licenses to either sell recreational marijuana on site or at a different location. Up to 110 licenses will be available by December 2021. . .Bloomingdale Village Trustee Frank Bucaro said he’s perfectly OK not getting additional revenues because he believes recreational marijuana will bring about a slew of negative consequences, particularly for youth. “How do you put a dollar amount on that?” Bucaro said.)

ATLANTA JOURNAL CONSTITUTION
— 7 ways your resume is holding you back – Mary Caldwell (DIERSEN: Applicants to fill the Wheaton West District City Council vacancy are required to submit their resume. The deadline is Tuesday, 5:00 PM, August 6, 2019. I am updating my resume for the first time in almost 22 years. What suggestions do you have for me?) 
https://www.ajc.com/business/employment/ways-your-resume-holding-you-back/nAj4CDe0npKjkNkrD9xhqN/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: You didn’t include dates. In an effort to avoid age discrimination, some job candidates will leave dates off their resume. But this is such an expected part of a resume that leaving it off stands out in a negative way, U.S. News & World Report warns. If you’re worried about revealing your age, include only your last 15 years of experience. This time period is often more relevant to employers, so it gives them the information they need without aging yourself. You have unexplained gaps in your employment. Employers usually understand that life happens and that gaps in work history aren’t uncommon, WiseBread says. What concerns them, however, is large gaps without any explanation. If you have periods of unemployment, include a single line of explanation, such as “Family Care” if you took time off while raising your kids or “Volunteering for XYZ organization.” . . . You list irrelevant work experience Related experience usually matters most to employers, so if you include irrelevant past experience, you’re distracting the recruiter, according to The Muse. Include only those skills that can be transferred to the position you’re applying for instead of every job you’ve ever held. Provide details about any accomplishments or training that could benefit you in the job you’re applying for.)
