-- DIERSEN HEADLINE: Bob Peickert, Chairman of the Democrat Party of DuPage County, blasts DuPage County Republican party leaders, elected officials, and candidates. Peickert outrageously argues a) that candidates who run as Democrats in DuPage County are different from candidates who run as Democrats in Cook County or anywhere else for that matter, b) that if elected in DuPage County, Democrats would end "pay-to-play" in DuPage County, c) that if elected in DuPage County, Democrats would rescind recent pay increases for county board members, rescind recent sales tax increases, and rescind recent property tax increases, and d) that DuPage County party leaders, elected officials, and candidates supported George Ryan and therefor should forever be punished for ever having supported George Ryan. Peickert outrageously ignores a) that Republican leadership in DuPage County has resulted in prosperity and safety in DuPage County whereas Democrat leadership in Cook County has resulted in poverty and crime in Cook County, b) that candidates who run as Republicans are obligated to advance the conservative Republican Party platform that results in prosperity and safety whereas candidates who run as Democrats are obligated to advance the liberal Democrat Party platform that results in poverty and crime, and c) that the Republican Party's problems are caused by party leaders, elected officials, and candidates who claim to be Republican, but, who by their actions and by their failures to act, show that they really are RINOs if not Democrats. Beyond outrageously, Republican Party leaders let people hold leadership positions in the party a) who reject most if not all the of the Republican Party platform, b) who have shown that they are involved in politics primarily, if not exclusively, to advance their own financial interests, c) who have failed to carry out their leadership duties, and/or d) who are full blown Combine members, do the bidding of Combine members, and/or want to be a member of the Combine.
(THE BLAST: DuPage GOP not listening to people The Sept. 8 letter to the editor by state Sen. Kirk Dillard demonstrates the use of fear so prevalent in Republican voter manipulation of late. We saw it with Bush/Rove and we see it here in DuPage County. As much as he tries to compare DuPage County Democrats to Cook County, he fails miserably when you actually examine the history. The DuPage County Democrats have publicly opposed taking campaign contributions from those who do business with the county. The Republicans have and will continue to engage in "pay-to-play" politics. This may be the "ownership" society they are so proud of. The contractors fill DuPage Republicans' campaign coffers and then "own" the Republican county board when it comes time to receive contracts. Bob Schillerstrom, chairman of the all-Republican County Board, received hundreds of thousands of dollars from contractors who have reaped millions in contracts with the county. Democratic County Board candidates opposed the huge 10 percent pay increase that the all-Republican board approved for themselves just before announcing their $40 million budget deficit. The DuPage Democrats also opposed the sales tax increase fought for and won by the all-Republican board. The recent property tax increases should dispel any notion that the Republicans are succeeding in keeping taxes low. Dillard and other Republicans are quick to decry our present governor, but conveniently forget to mention what happened under the leadership of Republican Gov. George Ryan, who left office with a $3 billion budget deficit and a bigger corruption scandal than anything we've seen in Illinois. Senators Dillard and Cronin argue against any Democrats being elected in DuPage, while complaining that they are not listened to in Springfield because they are the minority. The real problem is that they don't listen to or really care about the people they represent. It's time for a change in DuPage. Elect some voices of reason to the county board.)
