When leadership vacancies occur, are you given a) the applicants’ names, b) copies of what they submitted, and c) the finalists’ names? What opportunity are you given to comment on the applicants?

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Where is the transparency? Where is the respect? In less than six months, the Helena City Commission has been able to weaken Helena’s city departments, processes and strategic partnerships, resulting in a culture of distrust by hiring their handpicked city manager to implement their agendas and clean house. We are retired city employees who care about current employees and community groups that we had the honor of serving with in a productive and respectful environment. We retired before the new city manager was hired, and while it may appear we have an “ax to grind,” we simply care about the future of this city and staff. This letter strives to raise awareness and encourage Helena citizens to get involved and stay engaged. The 2019 City Commission election filing deadline is Monday. There are plenty of facts and documentation to support these concerns. However, for the protection of staff, details will not be disclosed in this format. Where is the community conversation? There appears to be a lack of public process and participation related to recent recommendations and decisions. City advisory boards are “informed” of decisions rather than consulted in a collaborative effort, and their recommendations are ignored. Longstanding and effective partnerships are dismissed and dismantled while priority is given to the rhetoric of entitled special interest groups and disgruntled individuals without any regard to the greater community benefit and other legitimate user groups. Research and you will find that decisions are made outside the framework of city ordinance and that contracts are being awarded without following a competitive process. We are concerned there is a total disregard for city code and legal processes. Is this transparency?)

The writer also demanded unspecified “cap$ and clawback$ for outrageous$ pension payout$” and local government consolidation.

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Rahm ‘would welcome’ migrants Trump considers releasing to sanctuary cities – AP (DIERSEN: Needless-to-say, to “welcome” illegals is to illegally encourage illegal immigration. Chicago Democrats have illegally done everything that they can to get citizens of foreign countries to illegally come to America illegally and to illegally stay in America illegally. If Trump sent 10,000, 50,000, 100,000, 500,000, 1,000,000+ illegals to Chicago, what would Chicago Democrats do with them? I predict that those Chicago Democrats would soon spread those illegals that they do not want across Illinois. How many unwanted illegals would those Chicago Democrats send to your county, to your township, to your municipality, to your precinct, and to your neighborhood? Of course, if they have not done so already, the Democrats who run Illinois will give illegals the right to vote. With votes from illegals, the Democrats who run Illinois will get rid of even faster individuals, organizations, companies, and governments that are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.) 
https://chicago.suntimes.com/news/donald-trump-releasing-detained-immigrants-ice-sanctuary-cities/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Chicago would “welcome these migrants with open arms,” in response. “What President Trump fails to understand is that America is a sanctuary country,” Emanuel said. “Small, medium and large cities across the nation are suddenly and rapidly identifying as sanctuary cities because of the abandonment of Americans values, ideals and cultural destiny under President Trump’s watch.” The plan was panned by critics as an effort to use migrants as pawns to go after political opponents. Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi calls the plan “disrespectful.”)

— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD WITH BIG COLOR PICTURE: For a million U.S. men, failing to register for the draft has serious, long-term consequences – Gregory Korte (DIERSEN: My avoiding the draft with student draft deferments 1966-1970 and a financial hardship draft deferment 1970-1971 has had “serious, long-term consequences” for me. While I worked for the federal government 1966-1969 and 1980-1997, my Democrat superiors, Democrat supervisors, Democrat coworkers, and Democrat subordinates stressed to my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates, especially to those who were veterans, that I had avoided the draft. They stressed that WHILE MY PEERS WERE DYING IN VIETNAM, a) I bought a new 1968 Oldsmobile 442 in 1967, a new 1969 Dodge Charger SE in 1968, and a new 1972 Corvette in 1971; b) I bought a new town home in 1972; and c) I earned a bachelor’s degree in management in 1970 and then took graduate business courses. Since 1966, they have hinted/implied/argued/shouted that because I avoided the draft, I have had TREMENDOUS UNFAIR ADVANTAGES IN LIFE.)
