Schaumburg Democrat Calls for Eliminating Joe Walsh’s 8th Congressional District

Joe Walsh on ABC News telling high school students the same thing he tells adults.

In the Elgin House Reapportionment Committee hearing on April 28 , 2011, a member of the Schaumburg Area Democratic Organization called for the elimination of the 8th Congressional District.

Roger Bianco thinks this would result in “a more representative form of government.

You can read why below:

MR. BIANCO: My name is Roger Bianco. It’s R-o-g-e-r, B-i-a-n-c-o. I’m a resident of Elk Grove Village living in the Schaumburg Township.

As a matter of full disclosure, I am a member of the Schaumburg Area Democratic Organization. I’m the deputy committeeman and a member of the board of that organization…

As a suggestion and as our concern as an organization, our concern lies mainly with the congressional districts; that is, the 8th Congressional District. [Congressman Joe Walsh’s] And what we would like to see done is the following or at least propose this as a solution.

And this might catch a lot of people by surprise, but essentially, we would like to see the elimination of the 8th Congressional District and combine that with the 9th Congressional District.

We would like to see the top northeast portion of the current 8th Congressional District moved into the 10th Congressional District [Robert Dold’s].

We would like to see the taking of the top northwestern portion of the 8th Congressional District and combine that with the 16th Congressional District [Don Manzullo’s].

We would like to see taking the 8th Congressional– I’m sorry, the eastern portion of the 14th Congressional District [Randy Hultgren’s] and move that into the new 8th Congressional District, and move the northeastern and northwestern spurs —

There’s two areas that spur up on the 6th Congressional District [Peter Roskam’s] and have them moved into the 9th Congressional District [Jan Schakowsky’s].

This is all based on statistical and demographic information that we have researched and looked at.

All that basically means is that we feel that this will result in a more
representative form of government. It will allow all people of all demographic makeups.

It’s welcoming the southeast Asian, Indian and Hispanic/Latino communities into our districts.

We feel that this truly represents —

We come from a district that has had some very close racism. We think that this makeup will continue to make close racism.

And by close racism, we have had, in the last election, hundreds of people and differences in votes that significantly lead to one vote per person and we would like to see that continue. That represents an equal balance.

Maybe someone can explain what “close racism” is.

  1. I don’t understand what Roger Bianco is claiming when he states,

    – And by close racism, we have had, in the last election, hundreds of people and differences in votes that significantly lead to one vote per person and we would like to see that continue. That represents an equal balance. –

    That’s as clear as mud.

  2. just imagine the savings of not having to fly Walsh home every weekend. seems to be a cost cutting measure both parties should support

  3. Okay, let’s play Mr. Bianco’s game.

    As an former McHenry County (and former Evanston) resident I am qualified to state that Illinois (and America) would be better served by eliminating the 5th District. This district is held by Jan Schakowski, a member of the Democratic Socialist Alliance. That makes her a COMMUNIST. The vast majority of residents in the district are not Communists, so she does not representative the district.

    Shakowski has a history of voting against America and is reliably far, far, left and ultra-progressive. Further, her husband is a convicted felon and it is not certain that she was not involved.

    America has enough problem and doesn’t need disloyal congressional representatives who have intimate connections with felons.

    How do you like that, Roger Bianco?

  4. Larry-

    I am confused. You are uspet that Mr. Walsh comes home every weekend? You would rather have a rep, that never comes home and lives in DC? Why would anyone want that.

    I don;t agree with most of Mr. Walsh’s Policies, but I love that on several occasionas I have at least had the opportunity to go out and meet with him to let him know how I feel about the issues.

  5. @ “J” —

    1. Learn how to spell. It’s “Jan Schakowsky.” You’ve misspelled her name twice, a different spelling each time. Doesn’t say much for your intellect.

    2. You’re a socialist too. We all are. That’s why we don’t pay for private fire departments, private police departments, private military security, private toll roads on every single street, private sidewalk tolls, etc.

    3. Look at a map. Mike Quigley represents the 5th district. Again, doesn’t say much for your intellect.

  6. Re: “just imagine the savings of not having to fly Walsh home every weekend. seems to be a cost cutting measure both parties should support”

    You mean like when Blago avoided Springfield as much as possible? Or maybe we could remove Democrats from control so we wouldn’t be drowning in debt?

    As to the “racism” word use, Cal, I was just about to send you an email and ask if you meant a different word.

  7. This is the most incoherent and ridulous thing I’ve seen yet. Keep your hands off of our district and our congressman.

  8. J….say….you had too many koo koo for cocoa puffs this morning.

  9. We love the Congressman “flying back and forth” and being able to speak with him about our issues. This is far more access than we have ever enjoyed in the history of our 8th District! It’s been easy to go to his websites and find out when the next event is scheduled, and GO!

    As for the “superior” remark about misspellings – Shakespeare spelled his own name many different ways, and it was Mark Twain who remarked that no one should limit themselves to spelling a word “one way”! Last I checked neither were intellectually challenged.

    Keeping fingers crossed we get to keep our “Joe”!
