— While the nation debates voting rights, turnout in suburban Chicago municipal elections is ‘frankly disappointing’ – CLARE PROCTOR
https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/breaking/ct-election-municipal-low-turnout-20210407-ecvcvo77nbap7nxzox3glwxkyq-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: At the county level, voter turnout mostly hovered in the low to midteens, typical for many counties in consolidated elections. On the lower end, McHenry County reported a voter turnout of 9.5%, and Kankakee County topped voter turnouts across the counties at 18.6%. The pandemic didn’t have a significant effect on voter turnout, according to county clerks’ offices, with sufficient alternative options for people to vote early or by mail instead of in person. In Cook, DuPage and Lake counties, turnout was 14.7%, 15.6% and 13.7%, respectively. In Will County, southwest of Chicago, 15.8% of voters cast a ballot Tuesday. That’s nearly 3 percentage points higher than the previous consolidated election in 2019, which had a voter turnout of 13.2%, said Charles Pelkie, chief of staff for the Will County clerk’s office.)

CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— This Kinzinger fundraiser is a who’s who of local GOP politics. And headlining the embattled and outspoken Trump critic’s event this evening: Karl Rove. – GREG HINZ
https://www.chicagobusiness.com/greg-hinz-politics/kinzinger-fundraiser-whos-who-local-gop-politics
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Signing on as co-sponsors of the event, according to a list obtained by Crain’s, are such top Republican fundraisers as former Trump administration Ambassador to Belgium Ron Gidwitz, financier Muneer Satter and industrialist Craig Duchossois. Also on the invite list are former corporate execs such as John Rowe and John Canning. . .The Kinzinger camp isn’t yet saying how much they expect the event will raise for his congressional campaign fund. But with tickets going for $250 to $4,600, and with well over 100 names on the sponsors list, you can expect a number into the six figures.)

https://www.forbes.com/sites/andrewsolender/2021/03/31/house-gop-memo-argues-for-embrace-of-trump-coalition-some-republicans-find-distasteful/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It is unclear who is in the “embittered and loud minority” Banks describes, but several Republican lawmakers have expressed displeasure about the direction the GOP has gone under Trump, particularly the rise of the QAnon conspiracy movement. Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), one of 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump, has launched a super PAC to challenge pro-Trump lawmakers and morph the GOP from a “Trump-first party” to a “country-first party.”)

Only 157 in my precinct voted for Trump while 269 voted for Biden. Only 26,080 in Milton Township voted for Trump while 39,530 voted for Biden. Only 193,611 in DuPage County voted for Trump while 281,222 voted for Biden. Only 2,446,891 in Illinois voted for Trump while 3,471,915 voted for Biden.)
https://reason.com/2021/03/26/abolishing-the-filibuster-is-about-power-not-anti-racism/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As the Senate majority prepared to abolish the filibuster in order to advance its political agenda, a long-tenured member of the chamber issued a stern warning. “We should make no mistake. This nuclear option is ultimately an example of the arrogance of power. It is a fundamental power-grab by the majority party,” then-Sen. Joe Biden (D–Del.) said during a speech delivered on May 23, 2005, from the Senate floor. Calling it “the single most significant” vote he would cast in more than three decades as a member of the Senate, Biden admonished Republicans for trying to blow up the filibuster to get judicial nominees confirmed with a simple majority. “Folks who want to see this change want to eliminate one of the procedural mechanisms designed for the express purpose of guaranteeing individual rights and they also, as a consequence, would undermine the protections of the minority point of view in the heat of majority excess,” he said.)

GLENVIEW PATCH
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: A hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-hater asks “Do you know the name of your Republican Committee Person?” and says “Every one of us in Cook County, save two Townships, has an elected (or appointed) Republican office holder; they need to know how you feel!!”
(DIERSEN: 2,446,891 in Illinois voted for Trump. 193,611 in DuPage County voted for Trump. 20,080 in Milton Township voted for Trump. 157 in my precinct voted for Trump. What does the future hold for Trump supporters in your precinct, in your municipal district, in your municipality, in your township, in your county district, in your county, and in Illinois? From what I see, the more of the following that is true about you, the more that hate-filled Trump-hating Trump haters will do to get rid of you once and for all: a) shared articles that were favorable to Trump, b) cast a Republican ballot in the March 17, 2020 primary, c) voted for Trump in the November 3, 2020 election, d) displayed a Trump yard sign, e) gave money to Trump, f) serve as a Republican Precinct Committeeman/Captain, and/or g) are running for an office as a Republican in the April 6, 2021 election.)
https://patch.com/illinois/glenview/do-you-know-name-your-republican-committee-person
(FROM THE ARTICLE: I spoke yesterday to a lifelong and staunch Democrat, a former candidate for elected office. I shared with her my conflict. She encouraged me to stay in the party and to make a change internally. As a resident of Cook County, that might not be easy. The fealty for the Head of the Republican Party (45) is disgusting to me. I have been and will continue to be a NEVER Trump Republican, and I have supported the Lincoln Project. . .Local governance and elections are the bedrock of our Constitutional Form of Government. People often say we are a Democracy when in actuality, we are a Representative Republic. In Illinois, the most basic unit of our government is the Republican and Democratic Committeewomen and Men elected to serve our respective parties. In Suburban Cook County, these representatives are ELECTED every four years at the Primary election for Governor. The political subdivision is the Township. At the March 20, 2018, Primary election, the following Republican Township Committeepersons were elected without opposition (please remember this point). . . I would venture to say that MOST Republican Primary Voters have no idea who their elected Committeeperson currently is, and even fewer have met them. The next Cook County Committeeperson election is likely March 15, 2022. A simple question should be put to every one of these elected leaders. On January 6, 2020, were you supportive of the Presidents incendiary remarks and, by extension, him; or do you stand for the Rule of Law, our Federal and State Constitutions, and the real Republican Party ideals which were on clear display before 2015. If you don’t like the answer you get, I hope that you will consider becoming a candidate for Republican Committeeperson. Our party must decide, are we with the 45th President or not. Only then, I believe, we will be able to relay the foundational stones of the Republican Party, one that I hope to be proud of again. If we can’t make an elegant transition to better government in the next four years I will turn in my lifelong Republican credentials.)
