DUPAGE COUNTY
— OUTSTANDING: DuPage County Votes to Prohibit Sale of Recreational Cannabis
https://www.dupageco.org/Content.aspx?id=61551
(FROM THE PRESS RELEASE: The DuPage County Board voted 10-8 on Tuesday to prohibit the sale of recreational cannabis in unincorporated areas. The Illinois Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act, which Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed on June 25, allows the County to pass an ordinance prohibiting the location of cannabis businesses. The Board determined the operation of cannabis businesses presents adverse impacts on the health, safety, and welfare of residents and additional costs and burdens on law enforcement and the judiciary system. The Board did vote, however, to assess the maximum permitted 3 percent sales tax on cannabis sales made at businesses located in DuPage County municipalities in order to help offset increased public safety costs.)

DAILY HERALD
— OUTSTANDING: DuPage prohibits recreational pot sales in unincorporated areas – Robert Sanchez
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20191022/dupage-prohibits-recreational-pot-sales-in-unincorporated-areas
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “My opposition to this really comes from public health reasons,” board member Tim Elliott said. “The public health data is clear.” The Glen Ellyn Republican said marijuana legalization will create a variety of problems, including increased cannabis use and addiction. He said the county shouldn’t profit from such sales. Elliott said Illinois lawmakers who supported legalizing marijuana “want county boards to take a share of their responsibility” by allowing such sales. “Springfield is offering us a piece of the action in exchange for our share of responsibility for what I’m certain is going to be a public health problem,” he said. “Let’s not be a party to this.” Still, six of the county board’s seven Democrats and two (Hart and Healy) and of its 11 Republicans voted against the prohibition and in favor of the sale.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: “The state of Illinois has made it a choice,” said Robert Larsen, R-Wheaton. “The state of Illinois has made a lot of bad choices over the years but we here in DuPage County have made better choices. “We can’t control the fact that they have chosen to legalize this drug everywhere in the state, but we can send the message to our constituents that we don’t want more sales of this in our county.” . . . “If you really believe that legalization is not going to result in greater accessibility and greater illicit use for underage users, please come see me because I have a bridge to sell you,” board member Tim Elliot, R-Glen Ellyn said. “These public health issues are going to happen … and yet we’re considering becoming part of this. Why?” . . . DuPage County Board Chairman Dan Cronin did not vote on this issue, but after the meeting said he likely would have sided with the ban were it necessary for him to make a choice. “We had a healthy, robust debate and the majority says, you know, not now,” Cronin said.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Freshman Democratic U.S. Rep. Sean Casten builds up war chest of more than $1.4 million in advance of GOP challenge from Jeanne Ives – RICK PEARSON
https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-sean-casten-congressional-fundraising-20191015-xncrdflmlbgbld2fp4qg7jy6o4-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Federal Election Commission campaign reports showed Ives, who announced her candidacy in mid-July, raised $340,298 through September. After spending $117,500, she said she had about $222,796 on hand. Among Ives’ contributors was conservative megadonor Richard Uihlein, who gave her the maximum $5,600 for the primary and general election. Uihlein, the Lake Forest businessman who owns Uline packing materials company, was by far the biggest donor to Ives’ campaign in advance of her near upset of Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner in last year’s GOP primary, giving her $2.5 million of the $4.2 million she raised. Ives’ campaign also received donations from two conservative organizations, reporting $5,000 from the House Freedom Fund and $2,500 from the Susan B. Anthony candidate fund. . .In dropping out of the contest, Sanguinetti alluded to problems fundraising, which was backed up by her report with the FEC. She raised only $39,318 from July through September and had only $36,539 in cash on hand to start this month. Last week, Gordon “Jay” Kinzler, a transplant surgeon from Glen Ellyn who has unsuccessfully sought other offices previously, announced he also would run in the Republican primary for Casten’s seat.)

https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-lauren-underwood-congressional-fundraising-20191016-7l22xq5e6bcntnsfsdrqkrlbuu-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The top fundraiser among Republicans trying to win the right to challenge Underwood in November 2020 was state Sen. Jim Oberweis of Sugar Grove. Oberweis, unsuccessful in previous bids for Congress and the U.S. Senate, raised $329,493 and reported $551,578 in cash on hand. Oberweis, a dairy magnate and financial investor, loaned his campaign $200,000 of the cash he raised from July through September. He now has made a total of $400,000 in loans to his congressional bid.)

CAPITOL FAX
— Sanguinetti bows out of congressional race From Evelyn Sanguinetti via a campaign spokesperson… It is with deep regret that I must announce that I have officially decided to end my campaign for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Congress for the 6th Congressional District of Illinois. I want to thank everyone that supported me through volunteering, financial contributions, and words of encouragement and support. I am sorry if this announcement lets you down. Although I firmly believe that I can and will win the nomination if I stayed in the race, the question in my mind is at what cost. There has been enough destruction in the Republican Party from past election cycles, and I choose not to contribute further to it by engaging in a costly and negative campaign against my opponents. I wish the remaining candidates all the best, and I encourage all Republicans to unite behind the eventual nominee for the good of the Party and more importantly the Nation as we continue the fight to stop socialism and to protect the American Dream for future generations.
