(DIERSEN: In 1970, when I was 21 years old, when I graduated from NIU with a bachelor’s degree in management, potential employers saw me as being draft bait. They did not believe that my application for a financial hardship draft deferment would be approved. Starting in 1966, when I was 18 years old, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have used my avoiding the draft against me big time. I should write a book about that.)

They hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I am “too conservative” and that because of that, the more that I tried to help candidates (distributed their campaign literature in my precinct, displayed their signs on my front yard, got sign locations for them in my precinct, etc.), the fewer votes that those candidates would get.

(DIERSEN: In Illinois, what if elected Republican township, ward, and precinct committeemen, instead of Republican primary voters, chose the party’s candidates?)
https://www.dailyherald.com/article/20210508/news/305089915/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Tens of thousands of Virginia Republicans, sometimes waiting in long lines of cars, cast ballots Saturday to choose nominees for governor and other statewide offices at a drive-thru nominating convention. The Republican Party held what it’s calling an ‘unassembled convention’ on Saturday to select its nominees in this year’s race for governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general. Republicans haven’t won a statewide race in Virginia since 2009. Because pandemic restrictions ban mass gatherings, delegates are casting ballots at nearly 40 polling sites across the state. More than 53,000 Virginians successfully pre-registered as delegates. GOP officials rejected applications from roughly 700 would-be delegates. Virginia is the only state with an open-seat gubernatorial contest this year, and the race will be closely watched as an early indicator of party strength heading into the 2022 congressional elections.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: After being canceled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, Wheaton’s Fourth of July celebration will return in 2021, albeit with scaled-back festivities. A fireworks display is set for July 3 at Graf Park, 1855 Manchester Rd. at dusk. The park district website notes that there will be no carnival rides, DJ music or other onsite activities. Residents are also advised to leave their pets at home due to the loud sounds of fireworks and potentially big crowds of people in attendance. Wheaton’s Fourth of July Parade is slated for July 4, though details about the parade time and route are still pending. No candy or other items will be passed out during the parade and those in attendance will be required to wear face masks if they are not from the same household and cannot maintain six feet of social distance. The Wheaton Park District did not immediately respond to Patch’s request for more information Wednesday morning.)
