The Wilmette Park District decided at its last meeting to keeps its hands off the harbor, citing community opposition and excessive costs to taxpayers as the reasons for the decision. Wilmette Harbor, located just south of Gillson Park and the public beach in Wilmette, is operated by the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District under a leasing arrangement. The 50-year expiring lease to manage and maintain the harbor is expiring; the MWRD will now offer a new rental agreement through a public bidding process.

For those who reside in the northern suburbs, Alan Minoff is in charge of Republican judge assignments in New Trier Township. There is a SEVERE lack of GOP judges in this area – most precincts have at most one Republican out of the five judges at each precinct. ConservativeBrand speaks from experience: one judge against four in a dispute is not a winning situation. Contact Alan at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
Visit RebelPundit.com to learn more about the urgent need in all of Cook County, IL for Republican election judges. Although the MSM meme is that “there is no election fraud anyhwere,” any election judge in Cook County can recount stories of questionable voting in every precinct – after all, this is Illinois, and virtually anyone is permitted to vote by the Board of Elections.
Does disappointment with the political class never end? It’s all about getting (re)elected. Full stop.

Long-time supporters of Highland Park pediatrician Arie Friedman, running for Illinois state senate in the 8th district, were scratching their heads when he recently sent out some interesting publicity jointly with Rep. Bob Dold. The more and more moderate Dold, running in the newly configured 10th Congressional District, has been deluging the airwaves with ads about his new-found “independence” from that pesky, partisan House of Representatives. Neither candidate mentions the Republican Party on campaign websites – although both have relied heavily on campaign contributions from well-heeled Republican donors outside their districts. Now the Illinois Review writes that Arie Friedman’s “assumed” pro life principles are – well – a big mistake? Whether it’s a switcheroo or a mistaken assumption, these revelations undermine any faith citizens may have “clung to” about the integrity of politicians. If they can evolve during the campaign, only imagine what voters will see after they are in office.

Check out the Steve Hayes’ Weekly Standard update on the Obama regime’s stumbling misinformation agenda after the 9/11 rape, torture and murder of an American ambassador on American soil in Libya. And Megyn Kelly of Fox news finally got to the bottom of the cut and spliced secret video of a Romney fundraiser by Mother Jones’ Dave “Liar” Corn. Romney’s comments on Israel and Palestine were nuanced and do represent the mainstream Republican point of view.

Brian O’Dwyer, a former Marine, responds to Democrat Dan Bill in the Patch after the Farkas/Biss Debate (IL 9th District State Senate), covered earlier here.
I saw Rep. Biss talking in Skokie about a month ago. First he said, “I’ve barely talked with Speaker Madigan – it’s sad!” Then when asked how he has stood up to the Speaker like Rep. Bost did a few months back, his answer was, “I don’t throw temper tantrums, I stand firm, and with principle!” Wonderful, Rep. Biss, however the question was how have you stood up to the Speaker? Give us an example, please. Since you didn’t provide an example, you haven’t stood firm and with principle. Rep. Biss, you have been part of the problem in Springfield! Twice now, in Skokie and at the GBS debate on 9/19/12, you have said you want a progressive income tax. That will only drive people with money out of the State. You also stated that you want more gun laws to reduce crime. News flash – Chicago is a shooting gallery for the gangs because law abiding citizens can’t defend themselves by shooting back, and people in gangs are already law breakers. I doubt the gangs will care about your new laws. FBI statistics show that in states with concealed carry laws, crime goes down very quickly. People won’t just start dueling every time the Cubs play the Sox. Rep. Biss, you are part of the Springfield problem.”
Only one reporter (as in “1”) actually fact checked the Chicago alderman’s Chick-fil-A narrative. #ChicagoValues

The story out in the MSM and local Chicago papers is not quite the truth. And what else is new?
