Democratic Citizens Of Berwyn

Democratic Citizens Of Berwyn People Before Politics • El Pueblo Unido The Democratic Citizens of Berwyn was founded in 2006 with the goal of putting people before politics.

Mayor Lovero and several other DCOB candidates took office during a turbulent time in our nation’s history, and while many cities just survived the Great Recession, under great leadership, Berwyn came out stronger than ever. Empty storefronts have been filled with quality businesses, leading to increases in job creation and sales tax revenues. The city has been lifted from a $400,000 debt to a $12

Thank you 2nd Ward! I am humbled by yesterday's election results. Thank you to my family, friends, neighbors and hard working volunteers for your support and for believing in me. Everything I said in this campaign is true: I pledge to be consistently engaged and active in the community, and not just at election time. I will work hard these next 4 years to keep moving our community forward as a great place to raise a family.

Thank you to my opponent Jose Ramirez for a well fought race, and I wish him and his family the best. I will be an Alderman for ALL 2nd Ward residents, even those who did not support me. I will work just as hard for you and hope to earn your trust.

I will support small businesses and fight to bring smart economic development to the Depot District and Ogden Ave by working with the Berwyn Development Corporation. Berwyn’s small business success is essential to our community. We need to do more to support them and bring more small businesses to lessen the tax burden on residents.

Democratic Citizens of Berwyn

The Democratic Citizens of Berwyn was founded in 2006 with the goal of putting people before politics. Mayor Lovero and several other DCOB candidates took office during a turbulent time in our nation’s history, and while many cities just survived the Great Recession, under great leadership, Berwyn came out stronger than ever. Empty storefronts have been filled with quality businesses, leading to increases in job creation and sales tax revenues. The city has been lifted from a $400,000 debt to a $12 million surplus. Programs for children, adults and seniors have been expanded to improve recreation, education and resident assistance. The city is financially sound as evidenced by its improved credit rating from an A- (negative outlook) to an A (stable outlook). Today, the slate of your DCOB elected officials aim to continue in that tradition. Your support is essential in ensuring the best possible service from your local government. Mayor: Robert J. Lovero Township Assessor: David Avila 1st Ward Alderman: James “Scott” Lennon 5th Ward Alderman: Cesar Santoy 6th Ward Alderman: Alicia Ruiz 7th Ward Alderman: Rafael “Ralph” Avila

8th Ward Alderman: Anthony “Tony” Nowak

The Democratic Citizens of Berwyn prides itself on being the true party of the people. As our logo symbolizes, we believe in joining hands, honoring our common concerns and working together to keep Berwyn thriving and strong. DCOB is by no means a monolithic organization. Identity politics – the politics of division – has no place here. Instead, we welcome wide participation. We embrace as valued team members not only Democrats, but members of other political parties. We do this because we recognize – as friends and allies – all those willing to work with us as a team for our shared goals for our beloved city. And this broad, diverse coalition – bringing together the talents and enthusiasm of a great variety of Berwyn residents – is indeed something to be proud of and a source of great strength.

For all you political geniuses out there 5 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DACA (Delayed Action Childhood Arrivals) Tuesday, President Donald J. Trump will announce his decision on the fate of President Barack Obama's 2014 Executive Order on DACA. He'll announce that he's ending the program but with a six-month delay so Congress can pass a law on the issue. Whether DACA policies stay or go is not up to the President, it's up to Congress. DACA has always been in the hands of Congress, they've historically punted the issue so they didn't have to take one stand or another on the vote. It's typical of how Congress works. Pass the buck and then blame others for not getting done what they didn't have the courage to do themselves. Here's 5 things you need to know about President Trump's Decision on DACA how we got here and what will happen next. 1. In 2007-2008 candidate Barack Obama Campaigned for President in 2008 promising Immigration Reform including DACA should be be elected. Obama won the Presidency, along with Democratic Majorities in both the House and the Senate. Immigration Reform & DACA could have passed without 1 single Republican Vote. The Democrats never passed either. 2. In the United States, Congress passes laws, Presidents enforce them. In 2014, President Obama signed an Executive Order changing the United States Immigration Laws, creating a new class of Immigrants and invalidating current Immigration Laws on the books, without Congressional Approval. This is Un-Constitutional. 3. Attorneys General from around the United States have given President Donald J. Trump a deadline of September 5, 2017 to either repeal the Un-Constitutional DACA Executive Order or they will file a lawsuit, challenging the Constitutionality of the DACA Executive Order. Should the President keep DACA in place, he's knowingly ignoring the Constitution and breaking his oath to honor it. 4. In July of this year, Dreamer Bills were introduced in both the House and Senate. Both bills present an immediate fix to DACA however, no priority has been put on the bills and neither has come to the floor for a vote in their respective chamber. If Congress truly cared about Dreamers, they could have passed a law and sent it to the President to sign for more than 10 years now. Instead, they passed the buck and counted on the President to leave the Un-Constitutional DACA Executive Order band aid in place. 4. Confronted with the September 5, 2017 deadline, President Donald J. Trump has decided to announce the DACA Policy will end in 6 months. President Trump is not "Ending DACA" and deciding to deport all "Dreamers" as is the popular narrative in the Mainstream Media now. President Trump has decided on a fair compromise to allow the proper process to take place. 5. The fate of the Dreamers is up to Congress, as it always has been. President Donald J. Trump has shown compassion to the Dreamers by not killing the Executive Order immediately. In reality, he's allowing an Un-Constitutional Order stand for 14 months (since inauguration till 6 months from now) even though many in his party and base feel it should have been reversed when he took office. This compromise gives Congress 6 months to create a law to deal with the situation and gives Dreamers, and those who are passionate either way about the issue, time to contact their Representatives and have their voices heard. Focus your political passion where it needs to be focused - both parties of the House and the Senate. Had they done their job the past 10 years (or longer) we would not be having this discussion. The only decision President Trump is authorized to make about Dreamers is whether or not he will sign a bill that Congress presents to him. If Congress doesn't act within 6 months, this is 100% on them. If Congress passes clean DACA legislation and the President doesn't sign it, then you can blame him. I did not personally write this just sharing so people can be informed with the truth.
