REPORTERS COMMITTEE FOR FREEDOM OF THE PRESS
— Reporters Committee: White House must restore Brian Karem’s credentials (DIERSEN: At its August 20, 2019 meeting, DuPage County revoked my GOPUSA press credentials. Because of me, because of what I do for you as your GOPUSA Illinois Editor, and without any input from DuPage County voters, “DuPage County Board Chairman and County Board Staff” issued “DuPage County Media Guidelines” to justify revoking my GOPUSA press credentials. SEE: https://www.dupageco.org/CountyBoard/Docs/61283/  Should I sue DuPage County like Brian Karem has sued the White House? Would the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press file a friend-of-the-court brief in support of me? Would the Daily Herald, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, etc. file friend-of-the-court briefs in support of DuPage County? Which Republican DuPage County officials support me – Berlin, Bucholz, Cronin, DiCianni, Eckhoff, Elloitt, Grogan, Hart, Healy, Henry, Jorgensen, Kachiroubas, Krajewski, Larsen, Mendrick, Puchalski, Ruscitti, Tornatore, Zay? Which Democrat DuPage County officials support me – Chaplin, Covert, DeSart, Kaczmarek, Ozog, Renehan, Ruthledge, Seimon?) 
https://www.rcfp.org/rcfp-karem-amicus-brief/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: First Amendment and due process require the White House restore Playboy correspondent’s credentials, RCFP argues. On Aug. 20, journalist Brian Karem, the White House correspondent for Playboy, filed a lawsuit against President Donald Trump and White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham asking the federal district court in Washington, D.C., to vacate the White House’s 30-day suspension of his hard pass and order that it be immediately restored. Today, the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press filed a friend-of-the-court brief in support of Karem, arguing that the White House must provide meaningful due process before denying, suspending, or revoking a journalist’s security credentials, and failure to do so in this case violates settled law in the D.C. Circuit and constitutional protections guaranteeing the flow of information to the public. “The White House cannot suspend or revoke journalists’ credentials without due process, based on vague standards that have never been publicly articulated,” said Bruce Brown, executive director of the Reporters Committee. “Under clear legal precedent, Mr. Karem’s credentials must be restored.” Before the White House had made its final determination to suspend Karem’s hard pass on Aug. 16, the Reporters Committee issued a statement expressing its concern over the “preliminary decision” to suspend his hard pass and reiterated its commitment to ensuring that journalists have the access needed to do their jobs effectively. In November 2018, the Reporters Committee also filed a friend-of the-court brief alongside Georgetown Law’s Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection in support of a lawsuit brought by CNN and the network’s chief White House correspondent, Jim Acosta, after the White House revoked Acosta’s hard pass. On Nov. 16, a federal judge ordered the White House to reinstate Acosta’s credentials.)

— Law banning salary history will be life-changing for workers The law, signed today by Gov. J.B. Pritzker, is a tool to fight the wage gap, and to lift the entire economy up in the process. – CHERITA ELLENS and WENDY POLLACK (DIERSEN: If I had not been denied my 7th Amendment rights in Diersen v. GAO, I would presented a jury with many examples in which GAO paid its female employees more than it paid its male employees who had more job-related work experience, more job-related education, more job-related professional certifications, and/or more job-related professional licenses. GAO was under tremendous pressure from Democrat politicians to hire, to retain, and to promote young Democrat minorities and young Democrat females.)
https://www.chicagobusiness.com/opinion/law-banning-salary-history-will-be-life-changing-workers
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Questions about salary history are extremely common. A recent survey showed that of 15,000 people currently evaluating job offers, 43 percent had been asked for salary history during the interview process. Imagine the cumulative effects of being asked about previous wages when considering a new job over the course of a career. Salary history questions are a major contributing factor in both racial and gender wage gaps. And this is exacerbated for women of color, who, because of the realities of intersectionality, often face both. Black women working in the U.S. make just 61 cents to a white man’s dollar. For Native American women, it’s 58 cents. For Latinas, 53 cents. And when a potential employer asks for past wages, it allows that pay inequity to continue, impacting future wages and earning potential. Over a career, a woman of color can lose over $1 million to the wage gap, further widening the wealth gap. This loss of income has an impact on opportunities afforded to their families, support for their communities and the economy at large.)

ILLINOIS MUNICIPAL LEAGUE
— OUTSTANDING: IML Publishes Adult-Use Cannabis Resources (DIERSEN: Needless-to-say, someone needs to take the lead in each of Illinois’ 1,298 municipalities and in each of Illinois’ 102 counties to assure that the sale of pot is banned by the end of this year. Illinois Church Action on Alcohol & Addition urges you to “1. Contact your Mayor, Village Trustees, Aldermen, and County Board member to ask them to sponsor or support an ordinance to prohibit retail marijuana sales, dispensaries, and marijuana businesses. 2. Talk with churches/pastoral associations, local law enforcement, doctors, counselors, fire chief and emergency personnel, teachers, school administrators, activists, and others in the community and ask them to write letters and speak at a public hearing in support of a ban on marijuana sales. 3. Attend and speak at Municipal and County Board meetings.”) 
https://www.iml.org/page.cfm?key=22360&slide=380
(FROM THE POSTING: Municipal Cannabis Business Prohibition Illinois municipalities may prohibit cannabis business establishments from locating in their jurisdiction by adoption of a local ordinance. IML recommends a public hearing in advance of the adoption of such an ordinance to create a record that supports that determination. While local governments are required to allow medical cannabis dispensaries subject only to local zoning provisions, adult-use cannabis business establishments may be prohibited. The first state licenses for adult-use cannabis business establishments are anticipated to be issued to organizations operating existing medical dispensaries, authorizing retail sales of adult-use cannabis at those locations starting January 1, 2020. Municipalities with medical dispensaries operating in their jurisdiction may limit or prohibit adult-use cannabis business establishments through local ordinances, but may want to consider adopting those provisions in order to provide those existing dispensaries clear direction in advance of any application. Linked here is the model ordinance: Municipal Cannabis Business Prohibition.)

— IVES puts on the gloves – SHIA KAPOS and ADRIENNE HURST
https://www.politico.com/newsletters/illinois-playbook/2019/07/19/ives-puts-on-the-gloves-lori-jabs-back-at-toni-4-cops-fired-in-laquan-mcdonald-case-459933
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Former state Rep. JEANNE IVES, who waged a bitter challenge against then-Gov. Bruce Rauner in last year’s GOP gubernatorial primary, has thrown her hat in the ring for the 6th Congressional District. Ives’ bid to unseat Democrat Sean Casten assures fireworks. Republicans have identified the seat, which pulls from Chicago’s Western suburbs, as a battleground. Casten, and fellow freshman Democratic Rep. Lauren Underwood, yanked their suburban seats from Republicans in 2018, and the GOP wants revenge. The GOP may have the perfect soldier in Ives, who isn’t afraid to get dirty in campaigning, but she first must face former Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti in the primary. That’s some delicious political irony given Sanguinetti was on Rauner’s ticket when Ives battled for governor. Rauner only eked out a victory in the primary before going on to lose to Democrat J.B. Pritzker in November. If turnout for the 2020 primary is low, she would have a natural advantage in the race against Sanguinetti — who still has little name recognition even after being Rauner’s No. 2. “Ives has a knack for Trumpy divisiveness that will serve her well in the Republican primary, but absolutely doom her in a general election because voters kicked out the last member of Congress for being too close to Trump,” Tom Bowen, a Democratic political strategist, told Playbook. In the 2018 primary, Ives drew the ire of Democrats and some Republicans alike for running an ad that was denounced as anti-immigrant, racist, sexist and transphobic. Casten may be well-prepared to face the likes of Ives, having gone through a tough cycle in 2018 when he unseated former GOP Rep. Peter Roskam in a contentious and high-profile race. This time, Casten has the advantage of being an incumbent in a district that’s veering left of its traditional GOP stronghold. Casten also isn’t afraid to duke it out in debates or on social media, which could make this race a fun one to watch. Ives’ entry into the 6th District race comes days after second quarter financial reports showed Sanguinetti raised just $103,647 — a paltry sum compared to the $700,000-plus Casten has raised.)

WASHINGTON TIMES
— The limits and hurdles of issuing reparations for slavery America today is not a nation made up primarily of descendants of slave owners – Linda Chavez (DIERSEN: Affirmative Action (AA), Diversity, and Inclusion are reparations. Democrats and RINOs make Republicans pay the price of AA, Diversity, and Inclusion.)
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/jul/18/limits-and-hurdles-issuing-reparations-slavery/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The problem is that reparations today would punish individuals who committed no wrongs while possibly rewarding some who suffered no harm. Justice requires individual culpability, not collective guilt. A people cannot be held accountable for the actions of their forebears—that path leads to endless cycles of violence, even genocide. But aside from the injustice of punishing offspring for their ancestors’ crimes, properly distributing reparations would be a very messy ordeal. Proponents frequently point to Germany’s payment of more than $70 billion in restitution to Holocaust victims since 1952 — but those victims or their immediate heirs are identifiable, as are the Japanese Americans interned in camps during World War II, whom Congress authorized to receive compensation of $20,000 each in the 1988 Civil Liberties Act. But as a recent New York Times article suggests, defining who might be eligible and how much compensation would be owed is difficult at best. America today is not a nation made up primarily of descendants of slave owners and former slaves. Of the 325 million people residing here now, only a fraction can trace their ancestry back to anyone living in the United States in 1860, the last decennial census before the Civil War and Emancipation.)

ILLINOIS FAMILY INSTITUTE
— Community Opt-Out for Marijuana Dispensaries – David E. Smith 
https://illinoisfamily.org/marijuana-2/community-opt-out-for-marijuana-dispensaries/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Take ACTION: Ask your local mayor, village trustees, aldermen and county board members to pass an ordinance prohibiting marijuana dispensaries and marijuana businesses in your community. The Village of Morton in central Illinois is the first municipality to pass such an ordinance. Their ordinance can serve as a template for other communities: Click HERE for this sample ordinance. Once it is introduced, ask local pastors, local law enforcement officials, doctors, counselors, fire chief and emergency personnel, teachers, school administrators, activists and others in the community to write letters and speak at public hearings in support of a ban on marijuana sales. Cover this entire process in your prayers. Pray especially for the wisdom of local officials who must vote on this proposal. . .Furthermore, it is important to point out that six Republicans also supported this regressive policy to make our highways less safe and to enslave our neighbors to addiction and mental illness: Illinois State Senators Jason Barickman (Bloomington), Neil Anderson (Moline), Steve McClure (Jacksonville), and Illinois State Representatives Allen Skillicorn (Crystal Lake), Lindsay Parkhurst (Kankakee), and David Welter (Morris) voted in favor of this anti-family policy. In their desperation to find a new revenue source to fix the financial mess they created (and/or to promote a so-called “social justice” antidote), these lawmakers failed sorely in their job to protect Illinois citizens.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— OUTSTANDING: Naperville City Council takes first step toward opting out of the retail sale of recreational pot – ERIN HEGARTY
https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/naperville-sun/ct-nvs-retail-marijuana-sale-naperville-council-st-20190717-rb6gxuw4lzaetie2wupsb6vtfm-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Naperville City Council appears ready to say no the selling recreational marijuana in the city. Members voted 5-4 Tuesday to direct staff to prepare the documentation needed to opt out of the retail sale of adult-use cannabis under the terms of the new state law, which goes into effect Jan. 1. The vote came after public comment from more than 15 people, including two businesses that want permission to sell pot in the city and representatives from behavioral health centers who are opposed to it. Council members Theresa Sullivan, Patty Gustin, Paul Hinterlong, Kevin Coyne and Patrick Kelly voted to opt out of allowing the retail sale of recreational cannabis. Those voting in favor were Benny White, Judy Brodhead, John Krummen and Mayor Steve Chirico. . .Residents and council members who spoke against the selling it in Naperville said it to approve it would be contrary to the city’s positive image, detrimental to public safety and potentially harmful to youth. “There is nothing family friendly about recreational marijuana. Family friendly is Naperville’s brand,” resident Jennifer Taylor said. . .Gustin reminded her fellow council members that while there may be benefits from a medical standpoint, the sale and use of marijuana is still against the law in the eyes of the U.S. government. “This is a federally illegal product,” Gustin said. “The federal government has not legalized marijuana because it’s a drug. Selling recreational marijuana will draw the nuisance to Naperville.” With Tuesday’s vote, city staff will prepare the necessary documents for an official council vote to opt out of the retail sale of recreational marijuana later in the year. . .Councilman Coyne said allowing recreational marijuana just because the city already sells alcohol and cigarettes doesn’t make sense. “We should allow and accept marijuana because alcohol is already here. We have one bad habit in town, so we should add another? I don’t buy into that,” Coyne said. Matt Quinn, community relations coordinator with Rosecrance, said teens perceive marijuana use as less risky than they did in the past. Quinn urged council to “not be naive” about the law requiring pot consumers to be 21 or older. Teens push boundaries, he said.)

Democrats promise those who claim asylum in America tremendous government assistance, otherwise known as welfare, including free housing, free food, free clothing, free medical care, free education, free transportation, jobs, a pathway to citizenship, etc. Of course, Democrats expect, if not demand, that those who claim asylum help Democrats get rid of Republicans once and for all.)

During his testimony, Epstein told Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) that in 2016, Google gave at least 2.6 million votes to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, “through bias and search results.” He stressed that was the lowest number.)

https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2019/07/the_best_places_to_retire_tend_conservative.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Bankrate.com just published its renowned ranking of the best and worst states for retirement. The categories rated, in order of weightings (in parentheses), include affordability (40%), wellness (25%), culture (15%), weather (15%), and crime (5%). Conspicuously, the top five states all have Republican governors, while most of the bottom states are run by Democrats. Moreover, much of the political machinery of the top states are Republican-run, allowing for coherent policies affecting affordability. The top five, in descending order, are: Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, South Dakota, and Florida. No surprise that Florida scored very well on weather and culture, but the other four states all outperform in areas where policy can have a big impact—affordability, crime and wellness. While Missouri is below par on crime ratings, that was more than offset by its top rating in affordability. Conversely, the bottom states are mostly run by the real deplorables: pandering political guttersnipes who’d take from hard-working, salt of the earth Americans to ensure all manner of freebies for illegal aliens. Indeed, sanctuary states and cities are overrepresented in the liberal laggards.)

My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, 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 $19,568 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. 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. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

— DEFUND LUTHERANS FOR OPEN BORDERS NOW! Michelle Malkin rips ‘subversive religious racket’ protesting ICE with taxpayer cash (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, the Democrat Party takes control of churches. Are you a member of a church? If/when that church formally declares war on America, what will you do?)
https://www.wnd.com/2019/07/defund-lutherans-for-open-borders-now/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If you were shocked by the images of the Mexican flag flying over an Aurora, Colorado, immigration detention center this weekend, you’ll be appalled at an even more disgusting spectacle: One of the top promoters of the so-called Lights for Liberty nationwide protests by Trump-hating, ICE-bashing radicals was a nonprofit religious organization known as the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service. As a designated “host,” LIRS played a key role in publicizing, organizing and participating in demonstrations against President Donald Trump’s deportation enforcement actions targeting some 2,000 illegal immigrants and their families who have ignored removal orders or skipped out on court hearings. Brazen hatred of cops, Border Patrol and ICE agents were on full display at the open borders protests fronted by LIRS and other left-wing groups, including Code Pink, CASA and CAIR. Marchers echoed the “Close the Concentration Camps” rhetoric of congressional brat pack Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. They carried signs declaring “ICE=Gestapo” and “Free the People, Burn the Camps.” It’s not just idle rhetoric. Antifa thug Willem Van Spronsen, armed with a rifle and incendiary devices, attempted to set a Tacoma ICE facility on fire on Saturday before being shot dead. He has been hailed as a “hero” and a “martyr” by fellow “progressive” travelers, while sympathetic mainstream reporters and activists look the other way. The president and CEO of LIRS, Krishanti Vignarajah, is a Sri Lankan refugee and former Michelle Obama policy director who led the Lights for Liberty event in Washington, D.C. She argues that Americans are obligated to open the floodgates at the southern border (since she turned out so great) and vehemently opposes what she calls “militant border enforcement.” To these border-sabotaging radicals, of course, any border enforcement is “militant.” LIRS sounds like just the kind of extremist group you’d expect to be kept afloat by billionaire George Soros’ big bucks. But hold on to your wallets and your American flags, folks: In 2016, LIRS relied on $64.7 million in government subsidies from taxpayers – that’s you and me – to fund a whopping 96.2 percent of its budget. LIRS is one of nine agencies that receives tens of millions of dollars to resettle refugees from around the world. The organization brags that it is “a vital arm of the United States refugee admissions program” that has worked with the State Department to import “over 500,000 refugees” to our country. One of LIRS’ most famous clients? Somalian-born Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar, whose immigration, marriage and tax fraud problems I reported on in my column last month. If only a fraction of LIRS clients share Omar’s contempt for our security and self-governance, you can see the trouble we’re in. And that’s just the caseload of one of the nine resettlement giants that together rake in an estimated $1 billion a year. In addition, the Lutheran nonprofit is one of two specially designated groups (the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is the other) that is contracted by the government to provide social services and benefits (including “psycho-educational support” and “low-cost or pro bono immigration legal assistance”) to sponsor families hosting illegal immigrant children.)

— The right to a perfect job match – LIVIA LAM (DIERSEN: What did you do to qualify yourself for better paying jobs? I earned 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.)
https://thehill.com/opinion/finance/453053-the-right-to-a-perfect-job-match
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The problem is, having a good job means more than just being matched to any job, and pushing workers to upskill won’t solve growing inequality. Even when unemployment peaked at 10.1 percent during the Great Recession, fingers also pointed to worker’s skill sets as falling short against employers’ desire for certain qualifications. But upholding a skills narrative that places the onus of employment on the shoulders of workers not only lacks relevance for those facing the greatest barriers to employment, but also limits mobility and risks exacerbating an already record-high economic inequality. To be clear, job outcomes that matter for workers include educational attainment. Research linking higher levels of education with higher earnings, better health and a longer life is well established. But because an individual’s ability to gain and maintain employment is also dependent on personal and social circumstances, systems that have a stake in both boosting workforce competitiveness and advancing equity must take into consideration these varying experiences.)

CONDUCTOR
— 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.

AMERICAN FREE PRESS
— Americans for Legal Immigration Political Action Committee Keeps Hounding Trump
https://americanfreepress.net/watchdog-keeps-hounding-trump/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Here’s a list of Gheen’s grievances with Trump: Trump promised a wall . . . no wall. Trump promised to end Obama’s DACA Amnesty on his first day, . . . DACA is continued by Trump. Trump promised to end birthright citizenship by executive order. . . . He did not do it. Trump said illegals had to go home. . . . Now he says they can stay and he supports amnesty bills. Trump said he would build a new deportation force to send illegals home. . . . That has not happened. Trump said he would clean up our elections, including illegal alien voters, but folded and shut down the Elections Integrity Commission headed by Kris Kobach at the first sign of resistance. Then Trump said he ordered DHS to clean up our elections’ fraud problems . . . [but it] hasn’t happened. Trump has packed his administration with pro-Amnesty Bush faction operatives while leaving most anti-illegal immigration fighters out of his staff pool. Trump promised to end sanctuary cities for illegal aliens but has not. Trump said he was sending the U.S. military to the border and ordering DHS to repel the illegal alien caravans. He said there would be no more catch and release and that the caravans would not be let in nor would be kept in tent detention facilities near the borders. But instead he is letting the caravan illegals in, and most of them are roaming free here inside the U.S. at this time with government assistance.)

LOWELL SUN
— Auditor resumés don’t add up Councilors trying to get more applications (DIERSEN: Should I apply? I worked for GAO for almost 18 years; my ending salary was $127,654 in today’s dollars. I worked for IRS for almost 9 years; my ending salary was $93,592 in today’s dollars. My certifications include CPA, Internal Auditor, Government Financial Manager, and Forensic Accountant.)
http://www.lowellsun.com/ci_32728299/column-auditor-resumes-dont-add-up

(FROM THE ARTICLE: NOT MUCH has changed in the nearly four years since the Lowell City Council was last on the hunt for a City Auditor. Councilors asked to pump up the pay and post the job in multiple languages this time around, but, with the three week application period now closed, several councilors were unsatisfied with the resumés that landed in their inbox. “We did raise the salary, but we’re not attracting the candidates,” said City Councilor Rodney Elliott. Is it déjà vu all over again? The council hired Bryan Perry in March 2016, after three rounds of candidates and six months. Perry got the gig with a $101,800 starting salary and $4,500 stipend for serving on the city’s Retirement Board. When he left the city for Wilmington on June 19, he was making $105,918 annually. The most recent posting for the job offers $100,000 to $113,000, plus the stipend. It’s the first posting for the job since Perry announced his departure. Should the city offer even more, some councilors wondered? Human Relations Manager Mary Callery listed the city auditor salaries for several other communities in the state. According to Callery, the auditor in Boston earns $140,000; in Cambridge, $110,000; in New Bedford, $120,000; in Quincy, $119,000; in Springfield, $109,000; in Worcester, $135,000; in Brockton, $114,000; in Arlington, $126,000. In Wilmington, Perry will be making $121,192.)

PERSON COUNTY LIFE
— Roxboro council sets process for filling vacant seat – Johnny Whitfield
http://personcountylife.com/stories/roxboro-council-sets-process-for-filling-vacant-seat,23174
— Roxboro’s city council is to be commended for its openness in the selection process if will use to fill the vacant seat of the late Byrd Blackwell. – Editorial
http://www.personcountylife.com/stories/striking-a-blow-for-openness,23175
(FROM THE EDITORIAL: At a public meeting on Tuesday, Mayor Merilyn Newell laid out a very straightforward and public process that will leave the deliberations of the council open to the public. Qualified individuals will be asked to submit resumes or applications that will be reviewed by council and made available to the public for its review. The candidates will all be interviewed in an open meeting and a vote on the new council member will take place in the open. Anyone who fills a vacant seat in the middle of a term has to establish their legitimacy as a full-fledged, creditable member of the council because they were not elected directly by the voting public. But the council’s decision to hold their deliberations in public and to let the public hear from the candidates before a candidate is chosen, will go a long way torward establishing the bona fides of the eventual appointee. With Roxboro’s council currently operating without hospitalized council member Sandy Stigall, the body is at a bare minimum. The process Newell laid out earlier this week sets out a deliberate, steady process to fill the vacant seat. We encourage people interested in community service to consider putting their name in the hat. We believe that the more candidates the council has to choose from the more likely that body is to find a strong candidate who can hit the ground running. That’s important in Roxboro as the city embarks on a number of new efforts to promote land use development and economic development, among other priorities. And, fortunately for everyone else, the candidate who eventually takes the seat will be well-known by the members of the public willing to listen to the interviews and to learn more about the candidates themselves.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Deerfield officials are open to allowing recreational marijuana sales, but in what form? – STEVE SADIN (DIERSEN: For a municipality or a county to allow the sale of recreational pot is to flush its “family friendly” status down the toilet. Each and every Illinois resident should urge their municipality and their county by email and at municipal and county meetings to vote to ban the sale of recreational pot ASAP. Each and every Naperville resident should urge Naperville’s Mayor and each of its City Council members by email (https://www.naperville.il.us/government/meet-your-city-council/) and at City Council meetings (the next one is Tuesday, July 16) to vote to ban the sale of recreational pot in Naperville ASAP. Similarly, each and every Wheaton resident should urge Wheaton’s Mayor and each of its City Council members by email (https://www.wheaton.il.us/544/City-Council) and at City Council meetings (the next one is Monday, July 15) to vote to ban the sale of recreational pot in Wheaton ASAP. Similarly, each and every DuPage County resident should urge DuPage County’s Chairman and each of its board members by email (https://dupageco.org/CountyBoard/CountyBoardListing.aspx) and at board meetings (the next one is Tuesday, July 16) to vote to ban the sale of recreational pot in unincorporated DuPage County ASAP.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Intraparty GOP criticism is a headache for leader Durkin His super-minority caucus is fractured into at least two even smaller camps – Rich Miller 
https://chicago.suntimes.com/columnists/2019/7/12/20692380/jim-durkin-intraparty-gop-criticism-springfield
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For the second time this year, House Republican Leader Jim Durkin has stripped one of his member’s access to a House communications staffer. Rep. Chris Miller, R-Oakland, is the most recent to lose his state-funded communications staff member. Earlier this year, Rep. Dave McSweeney, R-Barrington Hills, lost his comms staffer for criticizing fellow Republican Rep. Steve Reick for allegedly making “racist” comments and calling on House GOP Leader Jim Durkin to resign for being a “fake Republican” and “corrupt insider.” McSweeney, who wants to run statewide in 2022, said he paid for his own communications staffer, so he wasn’t concerned. The problems with Miller (no relation) started coming to a head last month when his Facebook page displayed an Americans for Prosperity Illinois post calling on readers to “Keep Rep. Brady accountable for raising the gas tax.” The post featured a photo of Rep. Dan Brady, a Deputy House Republican Leader. Rep. Miller claimed later that his Facebook account had been hacked. “Thanks for the heads up,” he told me after denying he’d made the post. I was dubious of the explanation, to say the least. And the attacks on his fellow Republicans continued. Earlier this month, he wrote on Facebook “Republicans don’t vote for tax hikes,” and called the GOP members who voted to raise the Motor Fuel Tax “Republicans in name only.”)
