I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964; washed dishes 1964-1966; cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966; delivered mail 1966-1969; worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970; sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971; pumped gasoline 1971-1972; collected delinquent taxes 1971-1980; and audited federal agencies 1980-1997.)

May 29 Evening Edition

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— UPDATE: The proposed Starbucks at the southeast corner of Roosevelt Road and Warrenville Road in my Wheaton precinct is off. I spoke with the property’s owner Ron Dell this afternoon. He said he was going to attend the Wheaton City Counsel Planning Session yesterday evening, but a major delay at O’Hare Airport prevented him from doing that. He said that Starbucks withdrew its proposal 2 weeks ago. Also, Wheaton has posted a video of the session at: https://www.wheaton.il.us/AgendaCenter – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com
(MY ARTICLE THIS MORNING: About 120 Wheaton residents attended a 2 1/2 hour Wheaton City Council Planning Session Tuesday evening, May 28, 2019. 28 of those 120 voiced their concerns about Wheaton’s East Roosevelt Road Corridor Market Study/Comprehensive Plan Amendment. 13 of those 28 are registered voters in my precinct. Most of the comments concerned the impact that proposed changes would have on homeowners immediately south and north of Roosevelt Road, traffic congestion, affordable housing, public housing, the proposed Starbucks at the southeast corner of Roosevelt Road and Warrenville Road, flooding, the school crossing at Warrenville Road and Park Avenue, protecting historic buildings on Roosevelt Road, and Wheaton not individually notifying homeowners immediately north and south of Roosevelt Road of the session. My precinct includes the south side of Roosevelt Road between Carlton and Main Streets. For more information on the market study and plan amendment, SEE: https://www.wheaton.il.us/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Agenda/_05282019-1184. I included a link to the notice of the session in my May 26, 2019 GOPUSA ILLINOIS evening edition email (https://gopillinois.com/uncategorized/may-26-evening-edition-3/). I included link to an online petition against the market study and plan amendment (https://www.thepetitionsite.com/981/324/570/stop-the-roosevelt-road-corridor-redevelopment-plan/) in my May 23, 2019 GOPUSA ILLINOIS evening edition email (https://gopillinois.com/uncategorized/may-23-evening-edition-3/). I included my comment that “A Starbucks is planned for the southeast corner of Roosevelt Road and Warrenville Road in my precinct” in my March 10, 2019 GOPUSA ILLINOIS morning edition email (https://gopillinois.com/uncategorized/march-10-morning-edition-4/). Sadly, many of those in my precinct who oppose the market study and plan amendment automatically assume that I completely support the market study and plan amendment a) because I am a conservative Republican Precinct Committeeman who supports Trump and b) because Ron Dell, the owner of the property at the southeast corner of Roosevelt and Warrenville, has allowed me to display 4X4 “Vote Republican’ signs on his building prior to elections for many years. Consequently, many of those in my precinct who oppose the market study and plan amendment have kept me “out of the loop” to put it politely. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always discouraged voters in my precinct from reading my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. I look forward to reading the minutes of the session and watching the video of the session when they are posted on the city’s website.)
