Rate the dueling DuPage County photoshopped mailers

* Peter DiCianni is a Republican running for DuPage County Board Chair…

* Current Chair Dan Cronin is supporting Republican Greg Hart as his replacement in the same primary race…

Flipside is here.

Which is “better”?

* Related…

* GOP purity test in DuPage County? Republican candidates for County Board chair question each other’s Democratic ties: If elected to the top job, [Hart] said, he wants to keep taxes flat, make it easier for companies owned by women, minorities and veterans to do business with the county and ensure the sheriff and state’s attorney get what they need to combat rising crime. DiCianni, 55, is a former mayor of Elmhurst who has helped to get several state laws passed, including a measure that requires insurers to cover autism treatment and one that allows police to track cognitively impaired people through GPS wristbands if they go missing.

* Daily Herald Endorsement: Hart for DuPage County Board chairman: Hart also took on a significant role in dealing with the opioid crisis in DuPage. He is the co-chairman of the Heroin/Opioid Prevention and Education Taskforce. The joint operation of the county board and board of health recommends policies, initiatives and programs to battle the opioid epidemic.

* GOP rivals for DuPage County Board chair trade barbs in high-stakes primary: If elected, Hart pledged to meet individually with every board member, regardless of their political affiliation, to understand their priorities. Hart said he can apply his expertise in management consulting — bringing together “diverse stakeholders that often don’t disagree” — to the chairman’s job. … During his mayoral tenure, the city’s credit rating was upgraded and Elmhurst Hospital was rebuilt. DiCianni won his county board seat in 2012. “It’s about who can lead, who’s put the time in and who’s got the credibility to bring these relationships that have been forged over years to the table to bring the county to the next level,” he said. DiCianni, who touts a list of municipal backers, aims to unify mayors in DuPage, a group that’s “always been divided.”

    F, if there’s anymore Godfather discourse this cycle Willy and I are gonna have to go get film crit masters degrees.

    I get the Fenwick reference to Quinn in the sense that Cronin and Hart went there but I don’t see that losing you a ton of votes in DuPage. Curious where the mailer was directed in the county


  3. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jun 17, 22 @ 10:31 am:

    These photoshops remind of the silly Madigan playing a “puppet master” kind of ridiculous, but if I were the one in either, I’d always take a tuxedo over a superhero costume as the farce to it all.

    They are “D+/C-“, respectively.


  4. - Amalia - Friday, Jun 17, 22 @ 10:35 am:

    they are both silly. but if Cronin wants to get his guy elected, he might spend more time on visibility….there are signs for DiCianni EVERYWHERE in that district. (also good visibility for Casten too.)


  5. - Lincoln Lad - Friday, Jun 17, 22 @ 10:40 am:

    Easy to see why the Dems now have more seats on the county board when you look at these nonsensical ads on the Republican side.


  6. - watermelon - Friday, Jun 17, 22 @ 10:50 am:

    You can’t just blame Cronin for the blue wave in DuPage (and elsewhere) in 2018. Like every Republican went down in flames in DuPage lol


  7. - Lurker - Friday, Jun 17, 22 @ 10:56 am:

    As a Republican receiving these and rating their effectiveness, I’d give a rating of D- and F. So I guess by default, the first is better.


  8. - Ok - Friday, Jun 17, 22 @ 10:58 am:

    Never put your opponent in a cape


  9. - low level - Friday, Jun 17, 22 @ 11:00 am:

    Lol. I love the Cronin / Hart hit. Thats awesome.


  10. - Lucky Pierre - Friday, Jun 17, 22 @ 11:04 am:

    How is what you did or where you went to high school matter relevant in an election for County

    What do they think this is a hearing for the US Supreme Court?

    Jim Durkin is also a Fenwick alumni, is he a Quinn supporter?


  11. - allknowingmasterofraccoondom - Friday, Jun 17, 22 @ 11:09 am:

    Cronin ain’t no Vito Corleone. Just sayin.


  12. - DuPage - Friday, Jun 17, 22 @ 11:11 am:

    Theatrics as usual.


  13. - Stalling - Friday, Jun 17, 22 @ 11:11 am:

    The Cronin, Hart hit piece is dead on. Cronin trying to stay in power by using a young new guy who will do his bidding! The printer may want to hire a new proofreader though. The spelling errors are not a good for business.


  14. - Rich Miller - Friday, Jun 17, 22 @ 11:13 am:

    Whoa, Lucky Pierre commented on a non-Democrat topic and appeared to weigh in against a Republican? Will wonders never cease?


  15. - Lucky Pierre - Friday, Jun 17, 22 @ 11:20 am:

    Not completely accurate Rich.

    I also referenced the Senate Democrats going through Brett Kavanaugh’s high school yearbook at his hearing and taking now incarcerated for fraud Michael Avenatti’s allegations seriously at his hearing


  16. - Just Another Anon - Friday, Jun 17, 22 @ 11:34 am:

    @Stalling

    Pete DiCianni does his own design and printing.


  17. - DuPage Rep. Resident - Friday, Jun 17, 22 @ 11:54 am:

    It is time for someone not in the good old boys network (Cronin and now newly appointed non resident Hart) Republican Party. DiCianni is a Republican but can work with Dems. He has a printing business and doesn’t discriminate so if a Dem wants to use his business he doesn’t say no. Cronin Law business with the County…NO


  18. - SaulGoodman - Friday, Jun 17, 22 @ 12:12 pm:

    The Cronin/Hart piece is terrible. Cronin isn’t on the ballot. Few people are actually going to read that Cronin hit piece to see that it is actually a hit piece on Hart.


  19. - Rich Miller - Friday, Jun 17, 22 @ 12:14 pm:

    ===see that it is actually a hit piece on Hart===

    Agreed. I was a little puzzled when I first saw the piece.


  20. - low level - Friday, Jun 17, 22 @ 12:36 pm:

    Fenwick? Forget it. Everyone knows Ignatius is superior…


  21. - People’s Republic of Oak Park - Friday, Jun 17, 22 @ 12:56 pm:

    To a broader campaign tactic, this cycle is all about calling your opponent a member of the other party. In all my years of going through crosstabs and toplines that was always the least salient hit even in a primary. It really shows the way partisanship has metastasized in primary politics.

    Also, I am sure there is a photo of Dan in a tuxedo somewhere no need to photoshop lol.


  22. - Harriet - Friday, Jun 17, 22 @ 1:14 pm:

    Seems like most Republican politicianss in DuPage now feel it’s best not to drift too far away from the majority of Democratic voters living in the once red county.


  23. - Protocol Droid - Friday, Jun 17, 22 @ 1:23 pm:

    One campaign is accusing its opponent of being an unaccomplished kiss-up that the good old boys network is trying to install on the throne to keep the gravy train rolling.

    The other campaign is accusing its opponent of being an accomplished and talented political operative who has worked for Democratic clients.


  24. - Correcting - Friday, Jun 17, 22 @ 1:32 pm:

    The Godfather one is better. The other one is immature.
