Tim Schneider Elected ILGOP Chairman CHICAGO – This morning, the Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee voted unanimously to elect Tim Schneider to a four-year term as Chairman. Schneider succeeds Jack Dorgan, who was named Co-Chair of Bruce Rauner’s Finance Committee earlier this week. “Under Pat Quinn and the Democrats, Illinois is a corrupt, one-party state in desperate need of a change,” said Schneider. “We are going to work tirelessly between now and November to elect Republicans up and down the ticket to fix this mess, and fight for Republican values of smaller government, lower taxes, and less spending.” Schneider is a small-business owner from Bartlett, a former Trustee and Highway Commissioner for Hanover Township, and has represented the 15th District on the Cook County Board of Commissioners since 2007. Schneider promised to continue to expand the Republican Party in Illinois, both before and after Election Day, and to expose the Democrats’ waste and corruption at all l ...

Looks like Cleveland, Cuyahoga County isn't the only one that puts crooks in office. What happens when you vote party instead of candidate, CHICAGO (Reuters) - In the Illinois primary elections on Tuesday, candidates on Chicago's Democratic ballot will include someone who served a prison term for bribery, another who is due to go on trial on bribery charges this spring and a third charged with bank fraud. "It's a terrible indictment" of the local political culture, said *** Simpson, a former Chicago alderman who teaches at University of Illinois at Chicago. "There is still a patronage-based political army on the West Side of Chicago." Political experts say all three candidates are either guaranteed victory or heavily favored to win. The candidates include Isaac "Ike" Carothers, a former Chicago alderman who was sentenced to 28 months for bribery and tax fraud, and is now running for commissioner of the Cook County Board. He was released from prison in late 2011. Derrick Smith, a state representative, was ...

There are a lot of gullible Republicans out there, who believe that Illinois alleged Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner's alleged support of populist issues should make us forget about his lifetime of supporting Democrats. They point out that Rauner has been throwing money at Republicans and conservative groups in the past couple of years, since he's been thinking of running for governor. But don't forget: he has also donated a mint to Democrats to defeat Republicans. Many hundreds of thousands of dollars that we know of; probably much more than we know of, because a lot of states don't require detailed campaign contribution records. In 2006, Rauner donated to Democrat Forrest Claypool in the hope of defeating Republican Tony Peraica for the Cook County Board presidency. We don't know how much. But here's a number we do know. In 2002, solid conservative Republican Mike Fisher was running for governor of Pennsylvania. Bruce Rauner donated $300,000 to left-wing Democrat Ed Rendell so he could d ...
Antonin Josef Čermák was born May 9th, 1873 in Kladno, Bohemia. The Cermak family emigrated to America while Anton was an infant and originally settled in Pilsen. After a move to Braidwood, IL for work, the Cermak's moved back to Chicago to the Lawndale-Crawford neighborhood. Cermak was elected alderman in 1912 and president of the Cook County Board of Commissioners in 1922. He was elected mayor of Chicago in 1931. On February 15th, 1933, Cermak was in Miami, Florida shaking hands with President-elect Franklin Delano Roosevelt when he was shot through the lung by a bullet supposedly meant for the president by Italian immigrant Giuseppe Zangara. Cermak succumbed to his wounds on March 6th, 1933. Conspiracy theories ran rampant in Chicago alleging that Zangara was a hired gun by the Chicago outfit. Cermak was against organized crime in Chicago and campaigned to fight against it. Zangara was executed for Cermak's murder by the State of Florida on March 20th, 1933.

Statement of Robert McKay Candidate for 4th District, Cook County Commissioner: Good evening. I want to thank each and every one of you for meeting with me this evening. I stand before you to announce that today, I have filed petitions with the Cook County Clerk’s Office and I am running for the office County Commissioner for the 4th District of the Cook County Board of Commissioners. Before making the decision to run, I was involved in a serious political fight to protect the voting rights of African American in Cook County. I worked with a coalition to put forward a Comprehensive, Cook County redistricting map. This map reflected the true population and proportion of the Africa n Americans residing in Cook County. The map was submitted to the County Board of Commissioners and voted down. Only one Commissioner, Earlene Collins supported and voted for the map. Interestingly, not one of the other Commissioners, including the President of the Board stood up to protect African Americans voting rights that ...

I hereby endorse two candidates for office this year, for those of you keeping score. Dan Patlak is the rarest of politicians, an honest man efficiently doing his job as a Commissioner on the Cook County Board of Tax Review. Dan is such a straight arrow, he wouldn't take absolution from a Priest to have Corned Beef on St. Patrick's Day this year, as he thought it could be seen as some type of bribe. is Rodney Davis, running for US House in the greater Wapella area.

CONTACT YOUR LOCAL ELECTED OFFICIALS AND URGE THEM TO VOTE "NO" ON THE TAX INCREASE PROPOSAL • You are already paying more than your fair share in cigarette taxes to fund government. • It is unfair to make you pay even more to fix the Board's budget mistakes. • Consumers have a variety of options and would only have to travel a short distance to find less-expensive cigarettes in neighboring cities, towns, and across state lines.

Toni Preckwinkle, Cook County Board President, wants to have a .05 tax on every bullet sold, and a $25.00 tax on each firearm sold, thinking it will reduce the gang violence in Chicago. Tell me how many gang members buy their guns and ammo over the counter? Dave Workman, from the Citizens Committee for the Right to Bear Arms was quoted as saying, "It's not the law abiding citizens stacking bodies like cord wood in Chicago. It's the bad guys." I think Chicago has plenty of other things that Ms. Preckwinkle should worry about, let's start with the high unemployment rate and go from there. These anti gun people make me sick!
That's not possible. Nothing's on the right in Chicago. Not even the Cook County Board.

Davis was born in Parkdale, Arkansas, and educated at Arkansas AM&N College (B.A. 1961), Chicago State University (M.S. 1968) and the Union Institute & University in Cincinnati, Ohio (Ph.D. 1977).
