    To Interested Voters:

    We would like to share what we know about Sarah Smith who is a candidate for the Appellate Court in Mt. Vernon, IL. We aren’t lawyers or judges, but just ordinary citizens, who happen to have met Judge Smith and liked her appeal, drive and determination. We have researched her and found that she has achieved more in her short life than most people twice her age. She works diligently at being a mother, wife, judge, Air National Guard officer (Colonel) and now, candidate for the Appellate Court. Wow, what drive! We think she is someone who is honest and has the integrity and reputation for doing the right thing, which isn’t always easy.

    It’s been an unusual year for campaigning and through it all, Judge Smith has given her time, reaching out to the voters, staying engaged and listening to people in her very large district. We especially admire someone with such diligence, who by the way just graduated from U.S. Army War College, and her patriotism over political partisanship.

    We like what we have learned about Judge Sarah Smith and will vote for her on Nov. 3rd!

    Ever notice that most of the crime in St. Louis is in north city.
    Seems like mostly white police are assigned there; at least that
    what I see on the tv news.
    The other strange phenomena is lawn mowers don’t seem to exist there
    the grass and weeds are mostly unattended to.

    To the citizens of Madison County:

    I am writing concerning Bob Daiber who is a candidate for Madison County Board Chairman. I know Bob and I know he has what it takes to lead the county board and do what’s right for the citizens of Madison County. I worked on several major projects and public awareness campaigns with Bob, and witnessed his ability to identify and solve problems. He has the ability to work with both Democrats and Republicans in order to get things done. Bob is a dedicated professional with a “common sense” approach and I feel that’s what’s missing in today’s politics. Bob is intelligent, practical, and versatile and one who is politically savvy. He can listen and reach out to help those who need it most, regardless of one’s politics.
    Choosing a chairman to oversee the Madison County Board is a no-brainer for me. I especially like the no-nonsense approach Bob Daiber would take and his plan to reduce my taxes. My taxes went up considerably and I think it’s time we give someone who is “middle of the road” a chance at doing what is best for the taxpayers.
    Thanks for listening!

    The Presidential Debate was one the most embarrassing things I have ever watched. It made me ashamed that this is the image that we put forth to the world, that, this is what democracy should look like. Shame on both candidates. I wish there was a realistic alternative. I don’t want to vote for either candidate.

    Let’s be crystal clear about this. If the Republicans had an alternative to Obamacare, they would have proposed it in legislation. They haven’t. The whole “repeal and replace” is a hoax. Passing alternative health care legislation would have “repealed and replaced” Obamacare. But the ONLY legislation the Republicans have attempted (multiple times) has been to repeal Obamacare. Even when they held both houses of Congress, that is the only health care legislation that was considered. ANY Republican who tells you a different story is plainly lying to you.

    Graduated Income Constitutional Amendment Tax Misconceptions

    Illinoisans are being asked to support a constitutional amendment that would fundamentally change the way we pay our state income tax. We support and recommend that you consider joining us in voting YES! We do so after careful consideration, much debate and we recognize and respect that there are differences of thoughts on this important matter. Nonetheless, we wish to clarify the following mis-conceptions.

    Misconception #1- If the amendment passes, it will give the legislature the power to raise taxes. Wrong! The Legislature already has the power to raise taxes, but legislators are loath to add more taxes to the lower and middle classes. The Graduated Income Tax Amendment would remove the current flat income tax and allow proposed future legislation to reduce some of the state income tax burden from low and moderate-income taxpayers to place more of it on wealthy taxpayers.

    Misconception #2- If the amendment passes it will open the door for the state to tax retirement income. Wrong! The Legislature already has the power to tax retirement income. No amendment is needed for legislators to tax retirement income now. Actually, if the Graduated Tax Amendment does not pass, taxing of retirement income will more likely be considered due to the urgent need for state revenue.

    Misconception #3-Voting against the Graduated Income Tax Amendment is a step toward keeping our taxes from increasing. Wrong! Illinois is one of only eleven states that do not have a graduated income tax, and one of only 3 states that do not tax retirement income. Illinois also imposes sales taxes on fewer items than most states. The lack of sufficient revenue forces local governments to rely heavily on property taxes to meet their obligations; and due to the pandemic and the resulting economic downturn, additional state funding will be required.

    Misconception #4- Family farms will be hurt by the Graduated Income Tax Amendment. Wrong! Only corporate farms will pay the corporate tax rate.

    The Graduated Income Tax Amendment is a first step toward righting the state’s finances. Please vote “Yes” on the Constitutional Amendment to support a Graduated State Income Tax.

      As long as Illinois is and remains a one party rule state yes, no matter what they call it your taxes – all taxpayers ( you even amazingly acknowledge this in your “Misconception#1 ) are going up. You live in a state that has more unfunded liabilities than any other of the 50 states ( you know like all those ‘union’ folks with lifetime taxpayer funded pensions, lifetime taxpayer funded healthcare, etc ) – how about an amendment to reduce these? Never gonna happen in anyone’s lifetime again, as long as there is one party rule

    When I read the recent article about the attorney Thomas DeVore and his advice on opening bars and restaurants to indoor dining, it really bothered me. We all understand the awful situation for these businesses, but this is dangerous.

    A new study published by the CDC found that people who dined out within 14 days of testing were twice as likely to have contracted Covid. Going to a gym or gathering with less than 10 people showed no bearing on rate of infection. The difference, obviously, is the need to remove a mask. You can find the full report in the CDC Morbidity and Mortality weekly report.

    Look, if you are going to encourage bars and restaurants to open indoors, it seems for the good of the public, you need to urge caution as well. Folks need to know the consequences. Also, the precautions necessary to keep people safe ought to be part of the presentation. But, if you still to choose to do this, please stay away from me.

    Both Madison and St. Clair counties suffer under systemic voter suppression. Yes, your vote is suppressed. State law states no precinct shall have more the 800 registered voters. The county clerks opt not to follow this law. As a result…you have a larger precinct and longer wait times at the polls. Because the precinct is oversized people shy away from being precinct committeperson. No precinct committeperson, no organization at the most basic level of our republic…and your needs go unmet as the position is vacant. No organization= lower voter participation.
    Contact your county clerk and demand they follow state law. They will try to fob you off. Demand they follow the law as enacted, not how they selectively decide “shall”= “may”. Contact the party of your choice and consider volunteering to fight the apathy of the elected caste. Your very freedom hinges on this.

    As a registered Republican, I am deeply offended by last week’s writer who asserted that I belong to a cult, and accordingly, take the progressive option of cancelling said writer. I now feel much better. So much so that I would offer that person my opinion: The 2012 platform is easily found online. Don’t be afraid of doing a little research before expressing your opinion.

      Did anyone else realize that neither of these commenters tried to refute the position of the original post that the Republican Party is a cult? One was offended, the other simply used that old trick of name calling.

      Let me quote from the 2012 Republican platform:

      “Our nation faces unprecedented uncertainty with great fiscal and economic challenges, and under the current Administration has suffered through the … most severe economic downturn since the Great Depression.

      Many Americans have experienced the burden of lost jobs, lost homes, and lost hopes. Our middle class has felt that burden most acutely. Meanwhile, the federal government has expanded its size and scope, its borrowing and spending, its debt and deficit. Federalism is threatened and liberty retreats.

      For the world, this has been four years of lost American leadership, leadership that depends upon economic vitality and peace through strength.

      Put simply: The times call for trustworthy leadership and honest talk about the challenges we face. Our nation and our people cannot afford the status quo. We must begin anew, with profound changes in the way government operates; the way it budgets, taxes, and regulates. Jefferson’s vision of a “wise and frugal government” must be restored.”

      That sounds like it’s right on for 2020. Of course the 2020 Republican platform is nothing like this…

    SHADOW WOOD PHASE 3 rezoning meeting — Anyone interested in speaking against the proposed zoning change from R-2 single family residential to R-7 multi-use planned residential, anything residential in the R-1 through R-6 categories (including multiple family dwellings, mobile home parks) for the field at the end of Wheat Drive (one end Harvest Run, one end Shadow Wood) should send an email to [email protected] or attend the Planning and Development Committee meeting on Thursday, September 3, 2020 at 4:30 p.m. at the Madison County Board Room 157 N. Main St., Edwardsville, IL, Ste. 203. This field abuts Shadow Wood, Harvest Run, Woodland Hills neighborhoods, but also will impact all residents on Country Lane, Bauer Road. The developer wants to go from 58 families (R-2 zoning) to 81 families (if R-7 is approved). The County Zoning Board of Appeals recommended to deny this rezoning, but the appeal now goes to the Madison County Planning and Development Committee with the above meeting date/time/location. Reference Shadow Wood Phase 3 File Number Z19-0058.
    Things to ponder:
    There are NO R-7 zoned districts within unincorporated Madison County — why this small 28 acre field?
    Traffic Generation – Per the Planning and Development Department — Single-family homes generate roughly 10 car trips per day during the week and multifamily (duplexes) generate roughly 20 car trips per day during the week. Shadow Wood Phase 3 is a seventy (70) lot subdivision consisting of fifty-nine (59) single-family dwelling lots and eleven (11) multi-family dwelling lots that will generate roughly an additional 810 trips per day. If it were kept at R-2 and 58 dwellings the estimated car trips would be 580.

    Stormwater Management & Drainage – The drainage of the property will be diverted to the proposed drainage areas on the property, as well as towards existing culverts east across Bauer Road (which floods to the point of impassable) and Wheat Drive (which recently had large rock gutters built in the subdivision to ease flooding in Harvest Run) and in an undetained area north of the subject property (not sure if this is the pond on Triad’s property, or the creek that runs through and occasionally floods Turtle Creek/Meadowbrooke/Fair Oaks/Hampton Glen/Woodland Hills/Shadow Wood).

    If the property is zoned R-7 and the developer goes bankrupt, or wins the lottery, or just decides to sell it, it is zoned R-7 and a new developer can use the latitude given by that very liberal zoning district.

    It’s official. The Republicans no longer have any principles. In the recent past (2015), Republicans were opposed to deficit spending, governing through presidential executive actions, crony capitalism and Russian aggression. They were in favor of free trade, free markets and strong international alliances. While I don’t have a copy, I’d bet the 2012 Republican platform mentioned all of these things.

    The 2020 Republican platform (effectively) has just two words – Donald Trump. And his presidency has been in opposition to the principles listed above.

    Republicans no longer belong to a political party They belong to a cult.

Not by a long shot.. yes cases are down in IL.. thank you Govenor or we would have been like other excelling states. You think you don’t need to wear a mask if you cant distance.. and what is up with local businesses not enforcing mask wearing or at least suggesting it…There are a couple that do but most don’t.. People in this town are walking around In stores and everywhere with no protection and NOT keeping 6 feet.. most disturbing is seeing someone in scrubs in the store with no mask… What DR,dentist or medical building or nursing home are they in.. sure would like to know so I don’t go there.. also seeing waiters and waitresses in stores with restaurant clothing on with no protection… I wont eat out because of that going on.. Oh and a Buffet… REALLY… what up!! What is it with people that wont protect others in public places.. Don’t tell me it is your right. yes it starts with and R but it is a RESPONSIBILITY.. just like wearing a seat belt, NO shoes, No shirt NO service. No texting on phone when driving.. No driving while intoxicated… I remember the fit people threw when all this went into effect.. Guess what it saved lives and people got over it.. We have had some new cases in this community some from traveling to highly infected states.. coming home and not quarantining until they are sick.. Most people are proven to be asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic showing no sypmtom’s.. so when you decide to go to these infected states just remember you may be bringing that virus with you and not know it; go to work or shopping in town and kill someone with it.. Community spread that is a good one… we don’t know where they have been or if they even had a mask on .. who and how many were infected by them? Thank you to all you responsible citizens that distance and wear your mask in public places.. I appreciate it and so do many others.

      I agree, burning should be limited to certain days of the week. However, per the city ordinance: “Burning is allowed 7 days a week between the hours of 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., within the City of Troy for yard waste (leaves, branches, etc.) Burning of construction material is prohibited within the city limits of Troy.” Technically anyone burning in the city should have their fires out by 4:00 p.m. I don’t see how this works since fresh grass clippings can smolder for days. I guess, to have it changes to say Monday, Wednesday, Friday burning only, you would need to bring it up before the city council.

    The Collinsville Township Board of Trustees Operates Unencumbered by Accountability.

    Having watched the proceedings at the Collinsville, Illinois Trustee meetings both in person and via Facebook I was astounded to find the absence of structure for how the proceedings take place.

    Please feel welcome to go back and look at these videos yourself and you will find tremendous comedy amongst the sad realization that these elected officials behave on video with infantile vindictiveness and demonstrate no compunction to be transparent for the public, let alone operate with the taxpayers best interest. When reading this summation it might seem that this must be fiction or an exaggeration and I truly wish that too. These are paid employees that operate with little decorum and no willingness to be forthright, transparent, and open, they do not even recognize the need, as they are in power and impervious to accountability.

    During the last few meetings they ushered out the previous Supervisor Terry “Bones” Allan and in a prearranged coup installed a new Supervisor Dan Hopkins aka Yogi, who had two weeks earlier resigned his oath to serve the public. Under the cover of darkness and in the chaos created by the Covid19 isolation orders, an “emergency meeting” took place virtually in minutes.

    “Miraculously” the recently resigned former Trustee just happened to be hiding outside the “emergency meeting” and just after the previous long tenured Supervisor, who was likely forced to step down, the new Supervisor was installed without discussion or fanfare. There was one dissenting voice that delivered an admonishment by the concerned Trustee on behalf of the public for not yet again acting in haste, but the conspirators voted immediately.

    This crude illusion had been manufactured and was even predicted two weeks prior in the public comments on these video’s regarding the resignation and release of Dan Hopkin’s from his oath to serve the public. Suddenly, Dan could not wait to serve the taxpayers and obtain the large salary that went along with his new found enthusiasm.

    The past level of dysfunction has now dramatically risen. The lawyer is allowed unrestricted billable hours and when that point is brought up regarding concerns over productivity with tax dollars the response from new Supervisor Hopkins is for rationalizing and mitigating the wrongful nature of this practice by saying “other lawyers charge even higher prices”. This has nothing to do with the question posed but allows him to press forward with the meeting to the nodding approval of the other board members who also feel embarrassment over their own dereliction of responsibility and fear scrutiny of themselves.

    Then Dan Hopkins on his own, purchases for the taxpayers a $900 desk (at least the previous Supervisor bought his own) that was portrayed and once again minimized by stating that this desk was worth even more. This expenditure and approval of the abundant lawyer fees have never been discussed but are blindly allowed, which calls into question why, and are things corrupt or grotesquely negligent? Today the concern is that next meeting the new Supervisor will produce an expensive throne to preside over further obfuscation and ineptitude foisted upon the already strained taxpayers.

    This pandemic further highlights the complete disconnection of the Trustees to the taxpayer. These careless expenditures for “necessities” when the average taxpayer is struggling and feeling pressure trying to make it through financially. The money given to the lawyer and for a desk could have been used to assist the most disadvantaged people in the community. Perhaps some kids or seniors could have benefitted during these unprecedented times, however the Supervisor and conspirators draw the line when it comes at the expense of not increasing the income for the Township lawyer or not acquiring office furniture as the first acts of “leadership” through the crisis.

    True leadership is by demonstrating selflessness and setting the example for the followers, not by deepening the approval of those closest involved supporters/conspirators who are needed to allow continued Self interests. Why not contribute to the community if you want to produce leadership? At the very least the lawyer is intelligent enough to know better, but lacks the self respect and moral conviction to not allow himself from abusing his position also. He would be quick to produce a malpractice claim elsewhere for far less negligence. These precise points will never be addressed or responded to because a denial from shaky ground will pose a significant and likely embarrassing challenge.

    You can watch these videos by going to Derrick Keith Cox Facebook page and then when you read the comments you will find criticism of these actions, but what you will not find is anyone that defends or endorses these behaviors.

    • Anonymous on April 23, 2020 at 10:59 am

      I suggest you watch the Township meetings on the township website if you want to see the whole meeting. Plus watching from the Facebook page of Derrick Keith Cox he has residents blocked including per his comments the new Trustee. Also there are childish subtitles calling Trustees and the Supervisor names like in the statement above. One even went as far as say Mr. Foley was tipsy at the last meeting. I agree the meetings haven’t been run the best in the past, but with Mr. Hopkins in the Supervisors seat I think you’ll see a change in how things are run around the Township and these meetings. All the whining and grandstanding will come to a stop I’m sure. I don’t think Mr. Hopkins can be pushed around like Mr. Allen was by Mr. Cox. I’d like to know why the Republic Services representative came directly to Mr. Cox and didn’t make an appointment to speak to the board directly? This board has to work together as a team and there’s four Trustees not just one and if the one doesn’t get his way then it’s a conspiracy that everyone is against him. Then the name calling comes out and the next meeting he’s convinced his friends to come to the meeting and plead his case. It’s sad to watch cause people aren’t coming for the Township meetings they are coming to be Derrick Cox cheerleaders.
