— OUTSTANDING: Bolingbrook board was blunt — no cannabis businesses in village – ALEX ORTIZ
https://www.theherald-news.com/2019/08/14/bolingbrook-board-was-blunt-no-cannabis-businesses-in-village/av0vrpj/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The village of Bolingbrook Board of Trustees voted Tuesday night to prohibit cannabis business establishments within its boundaries. The trustees voted 5-1 in favor of the prohibition. Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar said he was in favor of prohibiting cannabis businesses in the village and decried how the state government passed the legislation to legalize it. “I philosophically have a real problem with governments which have turned to drugs and gambling to balance their budgets,” he said. “That’s what the state’s come to.” The village’s ordinance cited the state’s Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act, which allows municipalities to prohibit adult-use cannabis business establishments. Ken Teppel, the village’s public safety director, spoke about the Bolingbrook Police Department’s opposition to allowing cannabis businesses in town. He also talked about the challenges posed to police departments in other states that have already legalized recreational cannabis use, like Colorado. For example, Teppel said cannabis businesses have been targets for theft because they deal solely in cash to be in compliance with federal banking laws. He added that, for police, it’s more difficult to investigate such crimes without a paper trail. He also talked about other problems like black markets developing around legal dispensaries, the high potency of the drug nowadays, potential dangers with flammable materials used to grow the plant, and trying to develop a test for impaired drivers who have used the drug. During public comments, the opinions among the handful of residents who spoke were mixed. Trustee Bob Jaskiewicz was the only “no” vote. He said it was a mistake to not have a public hearing before holding a vote on the prohibition. “I want us to consider other points as to why a dispensary would be a good thing,” Jaskiewicz said. Claar told Jaskiewicz to take up the issue with state legislators because, unlike other states, which held a referendum, Illinois “chose to ignore the public” and didn’t ask voters. Claar said lawmakers were already discussing a possible trailer bill to clarify and fix issues with the initial law that passed. The mayor also made sure to emphasize that the ordinance was only prohibiting commercial businesses selling cannabis and not recreational use of the drug. Trustee Mary Alexander Basta made the point that the ordinance could be revised in the future. Recreational cannabis use and possession will be legal in Illinois starting Jan. 1, 2020.)

GLEN ELLYN PATCH
— Recreational Pot Up For Discussion In Glen Ellyn August 19 Do you think recreational marijuana should be sold in Glen Ellyn? – Lisa Marie Farver (DIERSEN: The Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) should pass a resolution against the sale of pot in Milton Township and in the rest of DuPage County like it passed a resolution against video gambling in 2009. Republican Precinct Committeemen in Glen Ellyn should attend Glen Ellyn’s meeting on August 19 and Republican Precinct Committeemen in Wheaton should attend Wheaton’s meeting on August 26. They should call for banning the sale of pot in their municipalities. Past and present MTRCC officers should attend the aforesaid meetings and call for banning the sale of pot. At previous Wheaton City Council meetings, Bob Cherry, B. J. Slinger, Tim Whelan, and I have called for Wheaton to ban the sale of pot. At previous DuPage County Board meetings, Dick Furstenau and I have called for DuPage County to ban the sale of pot in the unincorporated parts of DuPage County.)

— 5:00 PM, Tuesday, August 6, 2019, is the filing deadline for applications to be appointed to fill Wheaton’s West District City Council vacancy. Sadly, Wheaton’s policy is to not disclose the names of the applicants or information about them, but instead, just the number of applications received. So far, Wheaton has received 30 requests for applications, 4 complete applications, and 1 incomplete application. So far, to my knowledge, none of the applicants has publicly announced that they have filed. Because of that, I will be filing. In my opinion, not only Wheaton’s West District residents, but all of Wheaton’s residents should know who the applicants are before the filing deadline. If you become aware of someone who has filed or will file, please ask him/her to issue a press release and to include [email protected] in the press release list. – Dave Diersen

ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN PARTY
— ILGOP Chairman Calls on Sen. Tom Cullerton to Resign Immediately The Democrat State Senator was indicted today on 41 counts of embezzlement, conspiracy, and making false statements It was reported today by the Chicago Tribune that Democrat State Senator Tom Cullerton has been indicted by federal prosecutors. Illinois Republican Party Chairman, Tim Schneider, responded with the following statement: “The criminal activity of Sen. Tom Cullerton brought to light by federal investigators is appalling. For too long, Illinoisans have been hurt by self-serving and self-dealing politicians. Sen. Cullerton is just another example of the insider class that makes money off their government positions and sticks taxpayers with the bill. Cullerton has betrayed the trust of the voters of his district and citizens of this state. He should do the right thing and resign immediately.”
