— Salvaging a Senate compromise: Can pension reform and CPS funding coexist? – Editorial
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/editorials/ct-cullerton-rauner-illinois-budget-cps-edit-0313-jm-20170310-story.html
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Kane County Board Chairman Chris Lauzen and Aurora Mayor Tom Weisner endorse Rick Guzman for Aurora Mayor.
http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/aurora-beacon-news/opinion/ct-abn-crosby-lauzen-endorsement-st-0312-20170312-column.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “I really like Richard,” Lauzen said after the press conference, where he’d stood shoulder to shoulder with Weisner while endorsing Guzman. And in a later conversation, the board chairman continued to praise Irvin for his “tremendous accomplishments,” that include rising from poverty to become a Gulf War combat veteran, successful attorney and long-serving Aurora alderman. But it comes down to leadership style, Lauzen reiterated. After a quarter-century in politics, particularly the last five years in the executive branch as county chairman, he said he’s learned “a valuable lesson” and appreciation of the benefits of a more inclusive style that focuses on bringing people together. Describing Irvin as “intense” – as the chairman admits he himself is – Lauzen said “the one thing I’ve learned is that the harder someone pushes, the harder others push back.” “You can’t be a bomb thrower in an executive position,” Lauzen added. “Look at Trump and Rauner. How is that working out for them?” While we all know backroom deals are part of the political game, Lauzen insisted any rumors about deals being cut with Guzman to get this endorsement are “100 percent false.” “There’s been absolutely no conversation with Rick about a city position at any time,” he said. “I have no interest in it. I already have a job.” Likewise, Guzman vehemently denies such talk. “Nobody with any kind of respect for accuracy believes that or is pushing that,” he said. Lauzen, who still has more than three years left on his term as board chairman did, however, admit he inquired about the business director’s position at East Aurora School District last year, insisting that even with his duties at the county, his accounting experience could have helped get the district back on track. . .Irvin, on the other hand, said he was not surprised by either of his opponent’s big-name endorsements, particularly from Weisner, because both of these long-time politicians “represent the status quo.” “I was side by side with Tom as he got us through the dark ages,” Irvin said of the former mayor. “But now we are ready to experience a renaissance, to build on it … to think innovation that will take Aurora to the next level.”)

— Spicer doesn’t reject concept of ‘Deep State’ – Kevin Liptak and Hunter Schwarz (DIERSEN: While I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, I was never a policy maker, that is, I was never a Schedule C (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schedule_C_appointment) employee.)
http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/10/politics/trump-deep-state-sean-spicer/index.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Asked whether a “deep state” of entrenched government employees exists, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Friday that some federal employees were working to advance the previous administration’s agenda. “I think that there’s no question when you have eight years of one party in office, there are people who stay in government — and continue to espouse the agenda of the previous administration,” Spicer said. That’s a ‘Deep State’ “So I don’t think it should come as any surprise there are people that burrowed into government during eight years of the last administration and may have believed in that agenda and may continue to seek it,” he went on. “I don’t think that should come as a surprise.” Spicer denied that the CIA was working to identify those people and remove them from office. “That’s not part of the CIA’s mandate under any circumstances,” he said. But to some, “Deep State” has a far more insidious meaning than just government bureaucrats and Obama appointees still working in Washington. Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Kentucky, told CNN’s Kate Bolduan last month he disagreed with “a lot of people here in Washington and maybe some supporters of Trump who say that this is an effort by the Obama administration to undermine the Trump administration.” “I’m worried it’s something deeper than that,” Massie said. “I’m concerned that it’s an effort on those who want a provocation with Russia or other countries to sort of push the president in the direction. So I don’t think it’s Trump vs. Obama, I think it’s really the Deep State vs. the president, the duly elected president.” The phrase, as it’s used by Massie, was popularized in Turkey. In 2012, a CNN report described it as a “term many Turks use to refer to alleged criminal networks within security forces and the government bureaucracy.” It was first used in The New York Times in reference to Turkey in a 1997 article that defined it as “a set of obscure forces that seem to function beyond the reach of the law.” It has since been used to describe unelected but influential members of groups including the bureaucracy or the military in countries like Egypt and Russia, and increasingly in some circles, the United States.)
