NAPERVILLE NEW 17
— DuPage County Divided Over Drawing of County Election Precinct Maps
(COMMENT: Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs redraw precincts to get rid of Republican Precinct Committeemen like me. For the second time now, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs have drawn me in to the same DuPage County Milton Precinct 9 in Wheaton with Jeanne Ives.)
https://www.nctv17.com/news/top-stories/dupage-county-divided-over-drawing-of-county-election-precinct-maps/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: DuPage County voters could find they are grouped into fewer, larger precincts come the next election. Why Now? A new piece of legislation signed into law in November 2021 and discussed Tuesday at the county finance committee meeting reduces the number of DuPage County election precincts from 930 to 607. The current draft of the redrawn maps leaves fewer committeemen to serve as the voice of the voters, thereby impacting whether a party may be elected. What’s At Issue? Board member Amy Chavez said some precinct committee members and township officials have reached out to her, asking for changes to the proposed election precinct maps. “I think there is a lot of concern over these new lines,” Chavez said. Board member Sam Tornatore said something has to give. “It’s essentially a political attempt to change boundaries within precincts,” Tornatore said. The new state legislation comes on the heels of the county board agreeing on a new DuPage County redistricting map in a bipartisan effort in October 2021. Deputy County Clerk Adam Johnson said he stands by the election precinct maps put together by county clerk’s office staff. “It’s unavoidable that there’s going to be some people who are not happy with the way the maps turn out,” Johnson said. “Certainly, we’re open to constructive criticism on how that process could have been better massaged.” Board member Jim Zay said he would not support the precinct maps as proposed given the lack of time allotted for input. “We have a job to do,” Zay said. “This is not putting us in the best position to do our job.” Johnson tried to address concerns about the county clerk’s office getting input on the precinct maps. “While there hasn’t been a lot of time for as many outside parties to review the maps, from the feedback I have received, I haven’t heard much in the way of actual substantive complaints of how the maps were drawn in terms of meeting the state legislature’s requirements,” Johnson said. Tornatore said he doesn’t want to place blame on the county clerk’s office, but he believes taxpayer money may have been wasted. “I don’t know that the election division contemplated this legislation coming from Springfield,” Tornatore said. “I know it’s been kind of on the back burner. … Perhaps we should have taken it into consideration before we ordered as many printers as we did. But I’m going to presume that we have a printer for every precinct that if we now have 300-plus fewer precincts, we either should get a rebate for the money we spent or we’re going to have a lot of printers being stored that aren’t being used.” The county board authorized the purchase of new voting equipment valued at roughly $7.2 million in October 2021. That contract as awarded includes funding to pay for printers, among other things. The county has been in the process of matching polling places with election precincts to determine which ones will be combined into a single location. Officials anticipate a reduction in the number of polling places, but they believe the amount of new printers purchased will remain appropriate for the layout of available voting locations. Moving Forward. County board members acknowledge they don’t have a lot of time to spare. The election precinct maps need to be adopted no later than Friday. A special county board meeting on this topic is scheduled for Friday at 8 a.m.)

ALTON TELEGRAPH
— County board trims 34 precincts. State-required change will save election costs. – Scott Cousins
(COMMENT: I only learned of precinct consolidation in Illinois this morning. I erroneously relied on the following to advise me of such things: the DuPage County Election Division (DCED), my representative on the Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee, the leaders of the DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and the leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization. I understand that at its January 11, 2022 meeting, the DuPage County Board will vote to consolidate DuPage County’s 930 precincts into just 607, a loss of 323 precincts. That includes consolidating Milton Township’s 130 precincts into just 83, a loss of 47 precincts. I have asked DCED to email me the new map for Milton Township and the map for the new precinct that I am in. I should write a book about the 2015 Gerrymandering of my DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 9 in Wheaton.)
https://www.thetelegraph.com/news/article/Board-reduces-precincts-in-response-to-new-state-16729105.php
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Madison County Board has approved a new precinct map that reduces the number of precincts to 191 from the current 225. The board took the action after new state laws were signed in mid-November by Gov. J.B. Pritzker. The changes were approved at a special Madison County Board meeting Thursday night. The new map was approved unanimously 21-0, with seven members absent, two participating remotely and one open seat. The changes are the last to be completed as part of the decennial census. In November the board approved a new Madison County Board district map cutting the board size by three to 26 members. “Reducing the total number of election precincts by consolidating 225 into 191 will save taxpayers 15 percent on every election held in Madison County,” said Madison County Board Member Chris Guy, R-Maryville, who chairs the Government Relations Committee. “Not only will a reduction result in cost-savings to the taxpayers, a reduction will also bring more efficiency and integrity to the election process.” The new law requires precincts to be “as near as may be practicable, 1,200 registered voters,” according to information provided by Guy. Prior to that the number was 500 registered voters per precinct. The new state law also requires precinct maps to be approved by Jan. 14, the day after candidates are allowed to begin collecting signatures to get on the 2022 ballot. The full county board took the precinct action after a special meeting by the Government Relations Committee, which approved the new precinct maps.)

— What top priorities do your critics/opponents have? – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

All my critics/opponents have the following top priorities:


— Stop me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters, but failing that, stop everyone from reading those newsletters
— Destroy those individuals, organizations, companies, and governments that they cannot manipulate/dominate, that refuse to glorify and praise them, that refuse to pander to them, that refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, that refuse to cover up their wrong doing, and/or that refuse to give them money
— Destroy those individuals, organizations, companies, and governments that support planks in the Republican Party platform that they reject including the traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment and/or equal opportunity (no race of gender based preference giving) planks

I should write a book about my critics/opponents and the success that they have had destroying the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Organization, Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton Park District, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Illinois Center Right Coalition, American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter, me, etc.

I would focus on my critics/opponents who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton

I would focus on those who succeeded last year in stopping me from raising funds from Republicans so that Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parade and fireworks.

I would focus on the biggest hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters in Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton.

— Millions sympathize with the rioters who attacked the Capitol on Jan. 6, survey finds – ODETTE YOUSEF
(COMMENT: I do not sympathize with those who attacked the Capitol on January 6. Nevertheless, hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters in Wheaton, in Milton Township, and in DuPage County a) paint me as being the biggest Trump promoter in Wheaton, in Milton Township, and in DuPage County and b) do everything that they can to punish me for that. Last year, they stopped me from raising funds from Republicans so that Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parade and fireworks. I should write a book about the biggest hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters in Wheaton, in Milton Township, and in DuPage County.)
