— OUTSTANDING: Are suburbs going to allow sale of marijuana? So far more say ‘no’ or leaning no – Elena Ferrarin (DIERSEN: Needless-to-say, each of Illinois’s 1,298 municipalities and each of its 102 counties should ASAP ban the sale of pot. Further, Wheaton’s Mayor, Wheaton’s 5 City Council members, applicants to fill Wheaton’s West District City Council vacancy, DuPage County’s Board Chairman, and DuPage County’s 18 Board members including Eckhoff and Elliot, should ASAP call for banning the sale of pot in all of DuPage County’s 38 municipalities and in its unincorporated areas. Further, a) the Illinois Republican Party should ASAP call for banning the sale of pot in all of Illinois, b) the DuPage County Republican Central Committee and the other 101 Republican county party organizations in Illinois should ASAP call for banning the sale of pot in their counties, c) the Milton Township Republican Central Committee, the 8 other Republican township party organizations in DuPage County, and all the other Republican township and ward party organizations in Illinois should ASAP call banning the sale of pot in their townships and wards, d) each and every elected and appointed government official in Illinois and candidates for those offices including Almiron, Berlin, Bucholz, Curran, Grogan, Grant, Henry, Holder, Ives, Jorgensen, Kachiroubas, Mazzochi, Mendrick, Oberweis, Ruscitti, Sanguinetti, and Wehrli, should ASAP call for banning the sale of pot in their jurisdictions, and d) each and every law enforcement, medical, religious, education, etc. leader in Illinois should ASAP call for banning the sale of pot in Illinois.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Naperville Councilman Kevin Coyne, who led the effort to prevent the sale of recreational marijuana in the city, said he believes more municipalities will say “no.” “I do feel this should not belong in the suburbs,” Coyne said. The main concerns are a potential increase in traffic crashes, use among teens and consumption of harder drugs, Coyne said. . .The state will issue up to 75 retail dispensary licenses, including 47 in the Chicago metro area, before May 1. Existing medical cannabis dispensaries can apply for early approval licenses to either sell recreational marijuana on site or at a different location. Up to 110 licenses will be available by December 2021. . .Bloomingdale Village Trustee Frank Bucaro said he’s perfectly OK not getting additional revenues because he believes recreational marijuana will bring about a slew of negative consequences, particularly for youth. “How do you put a dollar amount on that?” Bucaro said.)

— 7 ways your resume is holding you back – Mary Caldwell (DIERSEN: Applicants to fill the Wheaton West District City Council vacancy are required to submit their resume. The deadline is Tuesday, 5:00 PM, August 6, 2019. I am updating my resume for the first time in almost 22 years. What suggestions do you have for me?) 
(FROM THE ARTICLE: You didn’t include dates. In an effort to avoid age discrimination, some job candidates will leave dates off their resume. But this is such an expected part of a resume that leaving it off stands out in a negative way, U.S. News & World Report warns. If you’re worried about revealing your age, include only your last 15 years of experience. This time period is often more relevant to employers, so it gives them the information they need without aging yourself. You have unexplained gaps in your employment. Employers usually understand that life happens and that gaps in work history aren’t uncommon, WiseBread says. What concerns them, however, is large gaps without any explanation. If you have periods of unemployment, include a single line of explanation, such as “Family Care” if you took time off while raising your kids or “Volunteering for XYZ organization.” . . . You list irrelevant work experience Related experience usually matters most to employers, so if you include irrelevant past experience, you’re distracting the recruiter, according to The Muse. Include only those skills that can be transferred to the position you’re applying for instead of every job you’ve ever held. Provide details about any accomplishments or training that could benefit you in the job you’re applying for.)

I should survey those in my neighborhood, in my precinct, in Wheaton’s West District, in Wheaton, in Milton Township, and in DuPage County and ask if they want pot to be sold in their neighborhood, in their Precinct, in Wheaton’s West District, in Wheaton, in Milton Township, and in DuPage County.)
