— Resident of Baltimore Agrees with Trump: Cummings ‘Hasn’t Done Anything for Us’ – HANNAH BLEAU (DIERSEN: What has your Republican Precinct Committeeman done for the Republican voters in your precinct? Since 2000, I have made GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails available to the Republican voters in my precinct. Those emails have gone out each and every morning since 2004, and each and every evening too since 2015. Since 2004, those emails have included links to more than 341,800 articles and information on many upcoming events. Since 1999, I have kept the Republican voters in my precinct informed of who the Republican candidates were and how many votes they received in the precinct. Since 1999, I have circulated petitions for all the Republican candidates, distributed their literature, and encouraged the voters in the precinct to vote for them. Further, I have the best record by far since 1999 for attending Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) meetings and fundraisers. I served as the MTRCC webmaster 2000-2004 and 2008-2010. I save attended all the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Conventions as a Delegate since 2000 and I served on the 2008 IRP Platform and Resolutions Committee. Further, since 2005, I have raised funds from Republican candidates, elected officials, and party leaders to help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parades and fireworks. In the process of doing the aforesaid, I have come to know all the Republicans at the federal, state, county, township, and city levels who serve my precinct.)
