— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Anti-Trumps say “Illinois Democrats Expected to Boycott Trump’s Inauguration: Illinois Reps. Luis Gutierrez, Mike Quigley and Dan Lipinski are among the roughly 60 members of the U.S. House who plan to skip the historic event.” – Tom Schuba
— Criminals Targeting Parents Dropping Kids Off at Day Care in Suburban Smash-and-Grabs, Police Say – Christian Farr and Chris Hush
— State delegation all set for Trump’s inauguration – Katherine Skiba (DIERSEN: Those Republicans who attend the inauguration should be commended. Further, all Republicans in Illinois should step forward from now on to protect/defend those Republicans who attend the inauguration because the anti-Trumps in their precinct, in their municipality, in their township/ward, in their county, and in Illinois will do everything that they can to destroy them.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Despite the boycott of Donald Trump’s inauguration by some congressional Democrats, Illinois will be well-represented at the event, as House members who are attending report strong demand for tickets to Friday’s swearing-in ceremony. By mid-January, Republican Rep. Peter Roskam of Wheaton had received nearly 700 requests for the 198 tickets his congressional office was given, spokesman David Pasch said. “We’ve been able to scrounge up more than 100 additional tickets from other offices,” Pasch said Wednesday, meaning about 300 people will be attending through Roskam’s office alone. Democratic Rep. Brad Schneider of Deerfield, who unlike some in his party plans to attend the ceremony, gave out about 150 of his tickets and was holding on to the rest for “any last-minute requests, which are still coming in,” spokesman Steven Kirsch said. . .The festivities for some Illinois visitors will begin Thursday night at the “Inaugural Heartland Ball,” put on by the Illinois State Society of Washington, D.C., at the Marriott Marquis hotel. The black-tie gala is expected to draw about 1,300 to 1,500 guests, Terry Campo, society president, said Wednesday. He is a lawyer, lobbyist and political consultant from Springfield and often works in Washington.)

Since then, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have viciously demonized, viciously denigrated, and viciously condemned my parents and me as being filthy rich.)

— A better candidate for tollway job? – Ken Johnson, Bloomingdale (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always promoted patronage big time, so of course, they demonize, denigrate, and condemn my work experience, my education, my professional certifications, and my professional license.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: I read in the Jan. 16 Daily Herald about how the new Illinois Tollway’s Chief Operating Officer is a political and campaign veteran. This is the problem with Illinois. This is one of the reasons people are leaving the state. The endless story of political cronyism. Do you think just maybe somebody with a tollway background from within the agency or someone from another toll agency in the country might just do a better job in this position? At $155,000 a year, it’s not like we are getting any bargain here. Surely somebody better qualified could have been found.)
