There is *no* giving nor favortism to any party in this initative. You can confirm by reading theRead More amendment available on the website. Click on the Our Amendment graphic on the bottom-right of the page to view it. http://independentmaps.org

Neither the amendment nor the Independent Redistricting Commission it creates changes how voters inRead More a given area favor a party. The point of the amendment is our vote and its effect are not tainted.

Reboot Illinois touches on related topics in an article 'Redistricting and democracy: a fight forRead More fairness and representation' here... http://politics.rebootillinois.com/2014/02/27/editors-picks/tara-garcia-mathewson/redistricting-democracy-fight-fairness-representation/892/

The only myth we've confirmed in Illinois is that raising our taxes would solve our fiscal problems.Read More

A little off topic. This is interesting. Go to the poll at the beginning of the article in the greenRead More field right click, hit settings, then click the second box on the bottom, them tell me what you think of that?

"Phaedrus Pirsig March 29, 2014 at 08:51 AM Ayar, you do know every time you give yourself aRead More thumbs up it shows in every one else's news feed as a different color right?....Just giving you a heads up." - Phaedrus, thank you for confirming my previous posts. I was doing that to actually confirm that I POSTED. My posts are getting deleted in a pretty steady manner. There was nothing in them that warranted deletion, other than links to valid news sources such as the sun times, guardian, huffington post, etc. who "culls" posts to fit their own dogma, dude ?

Hmmm 25 years ago when Matune while in College bounced a check to the Pizza Guy when a check heRead More deposited bounced leaving insufficient funds. He graduated and left the state thinking it was resolved by the bank and the court issued an arrest warrant for failure to appear. Investigation? It is inconsequential. He also was involved in a college fraternity prank the dorm did not think was funny and called the police, oh geez how criminal no-one knows anyone in a fraternity, which of course some of the college fraternity pranks are "criminal", but also pretty funny. You try to put the Principal's Volkswagon Bug on the roof of the school, and Engineering Major in the making. I would trust him more with my children than some busy body parent talking on their cell phone in the pick up Lane at the Downers Junior High! :>

It's really not surprising that Mr. Matune would attack Mr. Sandack on the SSM issue. Given theRead More recent news stories about arrest, lies, mugshots and attempts to change his newspaper questionnaire answers, I suspect that Mr. Matune will say just about anything. I guess the honesty portion of his moral compass never developed. But don't take my word for it... http://capitolfax.com/2014/01/14/the-curious-case-of-keith-matune/

Thanks for sharing UoCDoc. Nothing more than sensationalism here. Distracting with a resolvedRead More social issue. Lets focus on current ones.

I don't like Matune saying that Sandack isn't a real Republican. I know plenty of Republicans whoRead More support same-sex marriage, just as I know plenty of Democrats who oppose same-sex marriage. It's an issue that cuts across party lines. It's one thing to criticize a candidate for changing his position, especially if it appears that the change was influenced by campaign contributions. But, to say that Sandack isn't a real Republican is an insult to loyal Republicans who, while conservative on tax and spending issues, are moderate on social issues. I still think it's a valid to question Sandack's judgment, as Mayor of Downers Grove, in terminating former Village Manager Cara Pavlicek for cause. Considering the time and money wasted by the Village, including a settlement and Ms. Pavlicek's attorney fees, what other boneheaded ideas will Ron have in the future? I think it's also fair to question how committed Ron is to pension refor, considering that he represents a Teamsters pension fund in his law practice. With the large number of municipal employees in Illinois that the Teamsters represent, one would assume the Teamsters have a different position on pension reform.
