— Memphis City Council candidates make their cases to constituents Shelby County Democratic Party hosts forum for contenders in Districts 6 and 7 – Omer Yusuf
— All politics is local. It should be extremely important to you who represents you in your municipality’s government. Residents of Wheaton’s West District have been represented in Wheaton’s government by Todd Scalzo for the last 10 years, but Scalzo has resigned.
It would be great if the Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) would host a candidate forum for the seven Republican candidates who are seeking appointment to fill Wheaton’s West District City Council vacancy.
Those seven candidates are Edward Ahern, Jeffery Antonelli, Angela Blatner, Dave Diersen, Nancy Harding, Mark Kmiecik, and Robert McNeily.
Hopefully, all of the aforesaid seven candidates will a) attend MTRCC’s 7:00 PM Wednesday August 14, 2019 meeting at the Holiday Inn in Carol Stream, b) announce their candidacies, c) and seek the support of the eighteen Republican Precinct Committeemen who represent Wheaton’s West District.
Those eighteen Precinct Committeemen are Joseph Caruso, Dave Diersen, Thomas Elsner, Arthur Grant, Ralph Hinkle, Marty Keller, John Kocinski, Robert Krzyzewski, Michael Hinsdale, Jae Kwon, Robert Larsen, Connor McCarthy, Robert McNeily, Ronald Menna, Elizabeth Tatro, James Ryan, Mark Thomas, and Herbert Wehling.
Hopefully, MTRCC will gather relevant information about the aforesaid seven candidates and provide that information to the aforesaid eighteen Precinct Committeemen.
The goal of the candidate forum and providing information on the candidates is to help the aforesaid eighteen Precinct Committeemen recommend to Wheaton’s City Council the best possible candidate to be appointed to fill the Wheaton West District City Council vacancy.
Many Republican candidates, elected officials, and party leaders routinely attend MTRCC meetings. I hope that the following will attend MTRCC’s August 14 meeting and a candidate forum if one is held: a) 6th Congressional District candidates Jeanne Ives and Evelyn Sanguinetti; b) DuPage County Recorder candidates Ron Almiron and Babette Holder; c) Wheaton’s mayor and City Council members; d) Illinois officials including Amy Grant; e) DuPage County officials including Robert Berlin, Fred Bucholz, Daniel Cronin, Pete DiCianni, Grant Eckhoff, Timothy Elliott, Robert Grogan, Gwen Henry, Richard Jorgensen, Christopher Kachiroubas, Robert Larsen, Paula McGowen, James Mendrick, Al Murphy, Sean Noonan, Jeffrey Redick, Darlene Ruscitti, Timothy Whelan, and Jim Zay; f) Milton Township officials including Sal Falbo, Chris Heidorn, Gail Hinkle, Marty Keller, Chris LeVan, Gary Muehlfelt, David Molitor, John Monino, and Yada Nathwani; g) Wheaton Park District officials including Michael Benard; h) School District 200 officials; and i) College of DuPage officials including Annette Corrigan, Christine Fenne, Heidi Holan, and Frank Napolitano.
It will be extremely interesting to see which of the seven
candidates are endorsed by which of the aforesaid candidates, elected
officials, and party leaders, and especially which candidates Ives and
Sanguinetti might endorse because they have served on Wheaton’s City Council. –

I will be doing that at DuPage County’s 10:00 AM Tuesday, August 13, 2019 board meeting. I have already done that at DuPage County board’s most recent meeting and at Wheaton City Council’s three most recent meetings. Please urge those who represent you in your county and in municipality a) to get an ordinance amendment on the agenda for the next meeting that bans the sale of pot and b) to vote for that amendment.)

— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Will your Republican township, ward, and county party organizations hold straw polls at their upcoming fundraisers? In the past, Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) straw polls at its Oktoberfest fundraisers had a big impact and raised lots of money for MTRCC. I organized those straw polls. MTRCC has not asked me to organize a straw poll for its October 3, 2019 Oktoberfest fundraiser. Contested primary races include Ives v. Sanguinetti and Almiron v. Holder.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Beyond the fried food on a stick and the iconic Butter Cow, another big attraction at the Iowa State Fair is the unscientific straw poll open to all attending the fair. In 2015, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump ran away with the poll. Hillary Clinton won the Iowa caucus and Trump came in a very close second behind Ted Cruz. Trump and Clinton eventually faced one another in the general election. This week’s straw poll is a reminder that the 2020 campaign is much further along than most people, and even many candidates, realize. The fact is elections — and the nomination process — are won in June, July and August. With only 182 days until the Iowa caucuses, Warren and Harris are on the rise, Biden and Sanders are fading, and the rest of the field is fried on a stick.)

— Quiz: Let Us Predict Whether You’re a Democrat or a Republican – Sahil Chinoy (DIERSEN: According to this, you are more likely to be Republican if you are White, Protestant (I was baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), heterosexual, male, married, non-poor, and over 42 years old like me. Unlike me, you are more likely to be Democrat the more educated that you are. I have a bachelor’s degree (1970), three master’s degrees (1976, 1980, and 1997), six professional certifications (1979, 1981, 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997), and a professional license (1981). But all of the aforesaid are in management, accounting, or finance. Unlike me, you are more likely be Republican if you attend church services. I should write a book about churchgoers in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois who demonize me, denigrate me, and condemn me because I am not a member of a church, I do not attend church services, and I do not give money to a church like they do.)

— ‘We’re all in the closet’: Trump’s Hamptons supporters go underground – Isabel Vincent (DIERSEN: Are you a Republican? I am. Have you gone underground because of hatred of Trump? I have not. Consequently, ever-increasingly, the Trump-haters in my neighborhood, in my precinct, in Wheaton’s West District, in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois dismiss me, belittle me, badmouth me, ostracize me, insult me, demonize me, denigrate me, condemn me, and even worse things. If they thought that there was any chance that the Wheaton City Council might appoint me to fill the West District City Council vacancy, they would work even harder to destroy me. I should write a book about those in my neighborhood, in my precinct, in Wheaton’s West District, in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois a) who are Trump-haters and b) who fear Trump-haters.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: While Trump attended two big-money fundraisers for the Republican Party and his 2020 re-election campaign at mansions in Southampton and Bridgehampton on Friday, many of his East End supporters are eschewing the spotlight — especially after last week’s calls for boycotts of billionaire Stephen Ross’ gyms because he hosted the president. “We are all in the closet,” said a boutique owner in Southampton who fears reprisals from his customers — most of them moneyed Democrats — if he speaks openly about his allegiance to Trump. “It’s like you have this disease and people want to run away from you.” A builder based in Westhampton worried that his customers would boycott his services if he reveals his support of the president. “People have really strong opinions here and if you go around wearing a MAGA hat, you really need to fear physical violence,” he said, adding the anti-Trump aggression comes mostly from summer residents. Trump won 51.5 percent of the vote among year-round residents of Suffolk County in the 2016 election, compared to 44.6 percent for Democrat Hillary Clinton. In 2008 and 2012, most of the county voted for Barack Obama. Despite the recent shift, many of Trump’s core supporters fear speaking out, especially during the summer months, when beachfront villages from Westhampton to Montauk are filled with left-leaning visitors from New York City.)
