(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.)

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.)

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— Democrats and Republicans Aren’t Just Divided. They Live in Different Worlds. The two parties represent radically different slices of the American economy.- Aaron Zitner, Dante Chinni, Jessica Wang, and Danny Dougherty (DIERSEN: Who do you have little in common with? I have little in common with those who are anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-patriotic, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.wsj.com/graphics/red-economy-blue-economy/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: America’s political polarization is almost complete. Its two main political parties increasingly represent two different economies. And they barely overlap. Democrats can be found in educated cities and suburbs where professional jobs are plentiful. Republicans live in working-class and rural communities, home to agriculture and low-skill manufacturing. . .Household income tells a similar story. A decade ago, median household income was about the same for each party. Since then, it has jumped nearly 17% in Democratic districts while falling 3% in Republican ones. . .Republican districts, by contrast, hold growing shares of the nation’s agriculture, mining and low-skill manufacturing jobs, many of which do not require a college degree, have lower pay and are more exposed to overseas competition. . .People with college degrees are more concentrated in Democratic districts than in Republican districts. . .Why does this matter? “When folks have less in common with one another, it’s hard to expect that they’re going to see the problem the same way,” said Roger Johnson, president of the National Farmers Union, “let alone recognize that a problem exists.”)

— Rethink Rezoning, Save Main responses share similar concerns – Part Two – Dr. Brian Miller
https://legallysociable.com/2019/08/02/preserve-neighborhoods-save-main-responses-share-similar-concerns-part-two/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In both cases, the concerns residents voiced are consistent across hundreds of development and redevelopment projects in suburbs across the United States. Having studied this in multiple ways (several of my projects address similar issues including “Not All Suburbs are the Same” and “‘Would Prefer a Trailer Park to a Large [Religious] Structure’“, residents generally bring up the same concerns: increased traffic, lights, and noise; a change in scale (particularly when it comes to height); and threats to residences (usually single-family homes) and the character of a suburb. In Wheaton, the character issue is not stated as clearly but it is present. This major road is one of the primary ways people see the suburb. How should it look compared to the stretch of Roosevelt on Glen Ellyn which is more like the strip mall approach and Winfield to the west which is more green and residential (and not coincidentally they are fought their own battles over taking advantage of possible business opportunities on such a busy road)? This is not just about a busy roadway or the homes that back up to this stretch; this is about signaling what kind of place Wheaton is. One that values businesses or homeowners, one that prioritizes vehicles or pedestrians, one that celebrates its history or is looking to simply make money?)

— 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.)
