(FROM THE ARTICLE: Former state Rep. Randy Ramey, stepson of former Republican state Senate President Pate Philip, added his name to what could be a three-way race for the Republican nomination in the 45th District.

Diane Pappas. . .Barrington Hills Village President Martin McLaughlin announced his bid for the 52nd District House seat, which has been held by Republican David McSweeney for several years. McSweeney announced his decision not to seek reelection earlier this year.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/johnmauldin/2019/12/02/americas-full-employment-hides-a-dirty-secret/#9c6e22d7c157
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Should just being “employed” make people/workers happy? On one level, any job is better than no job. But we also derive much of our identities and self-esteem from our work. If you aren’t happy with it, you’re probably not happy generally. Unhappy people can still vote and are often easy marks for shameless politicians to manipulate. Their spending patterns change, too. So it ends up affecting everyone and everything. Unhappy Employment There’s this plight of people who, while not necessarily poor, aren’t where they think they should be—and perhaps once were. This disappointment isn’t just in their minds; the economy really has changed. Yes, you can probably get a job if you are physically able, but the odds it will support you and a family, if you have one, are lower than they once were.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— U.S. Rep. Sean Casten backs Trump impeachment inquiry, sparking campaign issue in once strongly Republican district – RICK PEARSON
https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-sean-casten-donald-trump-impeachment-20190620-cle5i6byj5cjlkxb3pegoc3tpu-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Casten was one of two Democrats to flip traditionally Republican seats in 2018, defeating six-term Republican U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam of Wheaton 54 percent to 46 percent, a margin of 22,556 votes out of more than 315,000 ballots cast in the 6th Congressional District. The district includes what once was the heart of suburban Republicanism. But GOP support in DuPage County has been gradually eroding — in 2016 a majority of DuPage voters backed Democrat Hillary Clinton for president, and in 2018 they supported Democrat J.B. Pritzker for governor. Casten becomes the third House Democrat from a competitive district to back an impeachment inquiry in recent days, joining U.S. Reps. Katie Porter of California and Tom Malinowski of New Jersey. They are among 44 legislators the DCCC says represent districts that are key to maintaining a House majority in 2020. U.S. Rep. Lauren Underwood of Naperville, the other Democrat who flipped an Illinois suburban seat in 2018 by defeating Republican U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren of Plano, has supported the House leadership efforts to further investigations into Trump in lieu of opening impeachment proceedings.)

DAILY HERALD
— ‘Recovery-friendly’ workplaces welcome those with imperfect records – Lenny Bernstein (DIERSEN: GAO hired me in 1980 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran who would take the job. IRS hired me in 1971 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. The Post Office hired me in 1966 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/business/20181202/recovery-friendly-workplaces-welcome-those-with-imperfect-records
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The company is one of 70 employers in the state that are casting themselves as “recovery friendly,” a wide-ranging term that signifies a new approach to the millions of people whose lives have been interrupted by drug and alcohol addiction. These workplaces are willing to overlook employment gaps and some brushes with police that accompany drug use. They encourage open discussion of addiction in the workplace to reduce stigma. Perhaps most significantly, they treat substance abuse and relapse as medical issues like surgery or maternity — a time for the company to support, not abandon, the employee.)

NEW YORK TIMES
— Despite Big House Losses, G.O.P. Shows No Signs of Course Correction – Jonathan Martin
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/02/us/politics/republicans-midterms-house-losses.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: With a brutal finality, the extent of the Republicans’ collapse in the House came into focus last week as more races slipped away from them and their losses neared 40 seats. Yet nearly a month after the election, there has been little self-examination among Republicans about why a midterm that had seemed at least competitive became a rout. President Trump has brushed aside questions about the loss of the chamber entirely, ridiculing losing incumbents by name, while continuing to demand Congress fund a border wall despite his party losing many of their most diverse districts. Unlike their Democratic counterparts, Republicans swiftly elevated their existing slate of leaders with little debate, signaling a continuation of their existing political strategy. And neither Speaker Paul D. Ryan nor Representative Kevin McCarthy, the incoming minority leader, have stepped forward to confront why the party’s once-loyal base of suburban supporters abandoned it — and what can be done to win them back.)

They certainly blamed me for GAO’s problems a) because they forced me to take a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5 (currently $91,880) to GS-9 Step 10 (currently $72,677) to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old, a $19,203 (26%) pay cut in today’s dollars, b) because they did not promote me to GS-13 until 1986 when I was 38 years old, and c) because they never promoted me beyond GS-13. In my defense, 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.)

DAILY HERALD
— Wheaton council members announce mayoral bids – Katlyn Smith
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20180808/wheaton-council-members-announce-mayoral-bids
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Wheaton voters will elect the city’s first new mayor in 12 years next spring, and two city council veterans already have announced bids for the post. Mayor Michael Gresk is stepping down after three terms, clearing the path for a new leader to take the city’s helm. John Prendiville and Phil Suess have emerged as the first two mayoral candidates seeking to succeed Gresk, who first was elected in 2007. Prendiville served on the council from 2007 to 2011 and again since 2013 after an unsuccessful run to unseat Gresk as mayor. His at-large seat on the council also is up for election in April 2019. Suess ran unopposed last year to retain his seat representing the North District. His fourth term on the council doesn’t expire until 2021. Councilwoman Suzanne Fitch said Wednesday she intends to seek re-election to the other at-large seat. Candidates will begin filing their nominating petitions for the city’s municipal offices in November. Prendiville is the managing director and senior managing counsel for The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation, a firm that acts as a trustee for municipal bond issues. If elected, he said his background will serve him in helping to keep the city on “very good financial footing” since Wheaton weathered the economic recession. “The type of work I’ve done in the legal world is not adversarial. I’ve always been part of transactions where people are working together toward a common goal,” he said. That consensus-building work will translate to leading city council meetings that, under Gresk, are orderly and on track, Prendiville said. “I want to be a leader of this intelligent and dedicated group,” Prendiville said of his council colleagues. In his last mayoral run as Gresk’s challenger, Prendiville said he visited “at least 80 percent of homes” of municipal election voters. But he said Gresk “deservedly” had “a tremendous amount of support.” Gresk captured 57 percent of the vote. “I wasn’t running against him. I was just running because I was a little bit ambitious there,” Prendiville said. Suess is a partner in an investment consulting firm. He said his 14-year tenure on the council makes him the best candidate for the office. “I just think it’s the consistency of positions over time,” said Suess, who has lived in Wheaton for 30 years. “I’ve been a very strong advocate of living with the money we have.” He’s also sat on the DuPage Water Commission board for the past eight years. Wheaton is the second-largest customer of the agency that supplies Lake Michigan water to most of the towns in DuPage County. “I joined that commission in August of 2010 when they were basically in the depth of their problems with respect to their debt and have been part of the team that has turned around the water commission since January of 2011,” Suess said. Fitch said she’s running for a second term to continue addressing flooding and economic development issues as the council’s liaison to the Downtown Wheaton Association, a group of shops and restaurants. An attorney, Fitch highlighted her push for a new program to install sidewalks in neighborhoods for kids to walk safely to and from school. She also was a vocal supporter of lowering the speed limit on residential streets from 30 mph to 25 mph. The new limit went into effect Aug. 1. “I’ve been responsive to resident concerns, and I’ve really taken the time to engage the residents to address their issues,” Fitch said. Filing paperwork is expected to become available through the city clerk’s office later this month.)

— Even if you loathe Trump, vote Republican – Hugh Hewitt
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/commentary/ct-perspec-votegop-midterms-democrats-disaster-pelosi-schumer-0801-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Electing Democrats to a majority in the House or the Senate at the height of the party’s lurch left would be a disaster: Impeachment, demands for massive income tax hikes and the effort to abolish ICE would follow, while also throwing the military rebuild into reverse and the economy into paralysis because of the inability of business to predict the future with anything like certainty. A radicalized Democratic Party puffed by a Trump-loathing Manhattan-Beltway elite wouldn’t bring us a political environment as fraught as 1861 or even 1968, but the Clinton impeachment and the Watergate scandal eras are fair parallels to the atmosphere that would follow if Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., returns to power or Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., gets his wish to run the Senate. So even if you loathe the president, vote Republican. The downside of Democratic majorities in either house of Congress is so much larger than another two years like the last two. Both 2017 and 2018 have been polarizing and stressful for sure, but very productive for national security and economic vitality. Are most voters going to choose venting over their pocketbooks and their security? I hope not.)

— Union says Gov. Rauner is dragging feet on step raises – Doug Finke (DIERSEN: What pay increases have you received? Because of cost of living adjustments, step increases, and promotions, my pay increased every year that I worked for Post Office 1966-1969, IRS 1971-1980, and GAO 1980-1997, except 1980 when I took a $19,203 (26%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO. In today’s dollars, my pay increased from $15.85/hour to $16.91/hour while I worked for the Post Office; from $45,703/year to $91,880/year while I worked for IRS; and from $72,677/year to $125,325/year while worked for GAO. My critics/opponents argue that those increases prove that my Democrat superiors in the federal government do not discriminate against me or retaliate against me. But I argue that if they had not discriminated or retaliated against me, they would have promoted me to GS-13 (currently $96,403) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $113,920) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $134,000) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $164,200) by age 40. 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.)
