DuPAGE REPUBLIANS ADD 3 REFERENDUM ON THE BALLOT. FLUFF?

 

DuPAGE REPUBLIANS ADD 3 REFERENDUM ON THE BALLOT. FLUFF?

By Mary Coen

I always vote. That's a given for me. But I admit that there have been times, I'm ashamed to admit, when I have skipped items on the ballot, usually propositions, because I didn't know enough to be certain which way to jump. Since my life is no longer so crazy busy, I do have time now to investigate those propositions before I vote. I'll be glad to share with you some things I have learned about the local DuPage county ballot this year.

There are three propositions from the county this year: two involve the police, and one about medical matters - both very topical right now. The first basically states DuPage should continue to consider the funding of local police forces as its top priority; the second states that DuPage should stockpile medical supplies and personal protection equipment that might be needed for medical emergencies; the third says that DuPage should continue to fund and support police training methods that provide for their safety and that of the public.

On first reading I thought, "Well, duh, of course". Then I began to wonder why they were even on the ballot since they are all non-binding and seemingly non-controversial. So, I read them again. In the first proposal it says that the police should be "its TOP funding priority". Do I really think that police are that much more important than every other community service? Fire departments, teachers, medical and social professionals? They are certainly "a" priority, but "the" top one sets up an unnecessary competition in my mind.

About the medical equipment stockpile issue, I would like to know more: who exactly will be responsible for the collecting/purchasing, storing and ultimately distributing said equipment? Will it be available to be shared with neighboring counties in need and under what conditions could it be shared (sold?) to neighboring states as well?  I would like to believe that it would be done fairly and efficiently under the auspices of the medical/scientific community, but recent events have pretty much scotched that assumption.

Looking at the other police proposition I found it hard to disagree in any way with the desire for increasing safety for both police and the public; how to get there is another issue entirely. Don't police forces already have training? Since we now know that it is not working everywhere, we have to ask "What kind of training exactly? And to what end?" Just this week both President Trump and AG William Barr both praised the US Marshal service for their swift "retribution" - referring to the Marshals' killing of a leftist suspect being arrested for suspicion of killing a rightist in a street confrontation. They also, however, gave support for the opposite: an extreme rightest accused of killing 2 liberal protesters. This smacks of using the police not for the safety of all the public, but only the chosen ones, something we are supposed to be fixing.  How much knowledge and control can and will the local communities have over the culture and training goals of their police departments? That is more important to me than just agreeing that there should be training.

There was meant to be another proposition on the November ballot, a referendum on eliminating the county position of Recorder of Deeds and absorbing its department into that of the County Clerk. Other counties in Illinois have done this to their benefit. It would not have sacrificed any efficiency and would have saved the county up to at least $200,000 with the position vacated. In the current economic climate, it would seem to be wise to take advantage to save whenever possible. And indeed, the county board did vote to put this on the ballot last fall. In the spring, the County Clerk hired a consulting firm to further research this. Then recently, before the report was released, he proposed withdrawing the referendum, and tabling it passed, although with 7 dissenting votes. Why? The report, now publicly available, did reaffirm that the proposal would be money-saving. If this was positioning for some potential political gain, then I wonder if the first three aren't there for a similar reason.

I am not yet certain where I stand on adding my vote to the propositions as they stand. I wish the last one was still on the ballot; I would have had no uncertainty about voting for that one.

DuPAGE REPUBLICANS BACK TRUMP AND OTHER DESTRUCTION

 DuPAGE REPUBLICANS BACK TRUMP AND OTHER DESTRUCTION

By Joanna Williams

1) DuPage Republicans’ official endorsement of Trump: (Aug 28)

·        “Last night President Donald J Trump officially accepted the nomination of the Republican Party for president of the United States of America.  We look forward to supporting his re-election and continued good governance for our country under strong Republican leadership.”

·        Democratic Party of DuPage County response:
 “So, it is clear, the local Republican Party is the Party of Trump.  They are not concerned about Trump’s egregious rhetoric or policies, they are not concerned about his unpatriotic and criminal activites, they are not concerned about his failed leadership when it comes to keeping your health and your livelihood safe.  We see what “strong Republican leadership” has brought us – the American people deserve better.”

2) Trump’s Payroll Tax Deferment Debacle – A “Holiday” where you have to give back the gifts!

·        On August 8 President Trump ordered the Treasury Dept to allow employers to stop withholding the employee 6.2 % payroll tax that represents the employee’s share of Social Security taxes for the period Sept 1, 2020 and ending Dec 31, 2020. But since this is a deferment, not a tax cut, these deferred taxes must be repaid between Jan 1, 2021 and April 30, 2021 and employers are allowed to withhold the extra deferred amount from employee paychecks.  Needless to say, there has been strong opposition to a “Payroll Tax Holiday” that imposes “serious hardships on employees who will face a large tax bill as a result of deferral” – US Chamber of Commerce.

·        How could this affect the Social Security Fund?  Assuming the deferred taxes are repaid in early 2021, there would be no threat to Social Security.  However, Trump has indicated that if re-elected he plans to “forgive these (deferred) taxes and terminate the payroll tax.”  This would turn a tax deferral into a tax cut which would require an act of Congress.  If passed, there could be a threat to Social Security – the key question is whether Congress would include language that reimburses the Social Security Trust Fund from general government revenue.

3) Is Trump’s new post office chief trying to rig the election?

·        Since taking office in June, Louis DeJoy has executed sweeping changes at the struggling USPS, leading to delays in mail delivery  - and fears mail-in ballots won’t arrive on time. From a postal worker in Massachusetts:  “This kind of delay of service is voter suppression, plain and simple. Not a single person in my station of around 50 employees believes this is anything other than sabotage, and that includes supporters of the president.”  

·         Democratic lawmakers have called for DeJoy’s resignation and have launched a series of investigations into his conduct, past and present.  In addition, as part of the Heroes Act, Democrats have allocated up to $25B for the USPS but the Senate has blocked the bill.

MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR – SEPTEMBER EDITION

 MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR – SEPTEMBER 2020

By Kim Savage, DGTDO Chair

Do you have a voting plan? Studies show that people who have a voting plan are more likely to vote than those who do not think about it in advance. Make sure everyone in your household and in your “bubble” has a voting plan and make sure they vote!

We all know that this is the most important election of our lifetime. Just as important as voting is making sure you finish your ballot! Finishing your ballot means voting it from top to bottom, starting with the Fair Tax Amendment all the way down to the Circuit Court Judges. The Trump voters will vote for EVERY Republican on the ballot without question. However, we know that Democrats are likely to vote only for the candidates they know. Seriously, I hope everyone reading this understands that the DuPage Republicans have endorsed Trump. The DuPage GOP is Trump, so skipping Democratic candidates means that you will be voting for Trump supporting Republicans. Let’s keep Trump-supporting Republicans out of office by voting for all candidates up and down the ballot.

If you are still not sure about some candidates or issues, we have loaded up our website with tons of information. The Democratic Party of DuPage County also has a boatload of information, plus, they have assisted the Democrats running for office county-wide and for County Board to make videos. Watch the videos. Share them with your family and friends. Then, share them again. Don’t forget to vote for EVERY Democrat on your ballot! Remember, the Republicans running for these offices have endorsed Donald Trump for President (need I say more?).

Speaking of the Republicans, they still control the DuPage County Board and the Forest Preserve District. If you have been reading my messages, you know we can flip these bodies in this election. If you weren’t sure you should vote for the fiercely capable Democrats running for these positions, let me share an important reason why you should vote for the Democratic candidates. The Republican controlled County Board voted to exclude two Important referendum questions from the ballot that would provide you, the voters, with the opportunity to give advice on consolidating the Recorder’s Office with the Clerk’s Office and to reduce the size of the County Board. These questions were proposed by Democratic members of the Board and replaced by the questions that are on your ballot asking about making funding for law enforcement a priority, providing PPE, and training law enforcement. Hello! They are already doing these things, and if not, why not? But, guess what? They can only have 3 questions on the ballot. Enough said, (so if you want to skip something on the ballot, those are the ones to blow past because they are just there for distraction and to appeal to the Republican base. Just make sure to complete your ballot for all the candidate races).

Remember, everyone in Downers Grove Township (and all of DuPage County) has a Democratic Congressional Representative and a Democratic County Board member. In our township, we have one Democratic State Representative, Anne Stava-Murray. She has proven herself as someone who fights for her constituents in Springfield and brings new energy to the legislature. Her opponent is well liked locally, but remember, she is a DuPage Republican and supports Donald Trump. We have the opportunity to elect another Democrat in the northeast portion of the township, Jennifer Zordani. Jennifer is a fierce, no-nonsense candidate who stepped up to run for Congress in 2018. She has continued to be engaged with the community since then and believes in the great state that Illinois can become again. She is running against a Tea-Party Trump supporter who has a spotty record of attendance in Springfield and is an avowed Illinois-hater. Vote for these Democrats if they are on your ballot. You will not regret it.

While we all have Democratic Congresspeople in Downers Grove Township, we cannot take it for granted. Whether you are in Sean Casten’s district, or another Congressional District, it is essential that people get out and volunteer for Sean’s campaign! We fought hard to get him elected and he has responsibly served his constituency. If you are in one of the other districts, we want you to support your Democratic representative too, but Sean must be re-elected, so please help get the job done.

Fairness is also on the ballot this year. The DuPage County Democratic Central Committee (which is made up of all the Precinct Committeepersons in the county) voted to endorse the Fair Tax Amendment. Every Democratic leader in Illinois also supports this initiative. The Fair Tax Amendment will bring our tax system up-to-date with the one used by a majority of states and the federal government, lift the burden off of lower and middle-income Illinoisans by asking the wealthiest to pay their fair share, and ensure at least 97% of Illinoisans see their taxes cut or remain the same.

Are you ready to do this? Make your vote plan. Vote as soon as you can, either by mail or in person; preferably on a paper ballot (the only Early Voting location with paper ballots is at the DuPage County Fairgrounds). If you requested a Vote by Mail Ballot, you MUST either vote it and return it by mail, in a designated drop box at a polling location, or bring it with you (including envelope) to your polling place on Election Day. If you vote on Election Day or in person Early Voting, be safe. Please wash your hands, keep your face covered, and maintain an appropriate social distance.

No matter how you vote, be sure to FINISH your ballot from top to bottom.
