Naperville Park District sues Governor Pritzker

DuPage Co. (ECWd) –

The Naperville, Illinois Park District has filed suit against Governor Pritzker and much like other lawsuits across the state hitting court dockets, they focus on the limited powers given to the Governor in the Illinois Emergency Management Agency Act.

“However, none of the sections of the IEMAA cited by Governor Pritzker (nor any other provisions of the IEMAA) authorizes the Governor to amend, alter, or displace the statutory jurisdiction of a local unit of government.”

What may be some of the most troubling information to finally be exposed are the unintended consequences of the Governor’s actions.

  • Naperville’s Chief of Police reports a 6.48% increase in domestic disturbance calls and a 27.74% increase in domestic violence calls
  • Kane County is reporting a 139% increase in the number of juvenile abuse and neglect cases reported in March and April of this year compared to the same time last year.

Those numbers only represent one community and one county.  Let that sink in as Illinois has 102 counties approximately 1299 municipalities.

To our surprise, the suit makes no mention of the Supreme Court law on Executive Orders or the multiple AG opinions on Executive Orders which we covered in articles here and here.  Those documents support the facts on the Governor’s abuse of power.

  1. Home Rule is not the answer here, Individual Rights is the answer. Let me explain why. As we witnessed with the Right to Arms, (and as some of us warned loudly at the time, when ya play Home Rule, they just call Pre-Emption the solution and the end result is nothing more that the augmentation of government’s power.

    There’s no honest denial that’s EXACTLY what happened with the Right to arms here and there;s no honest denial that it is happening here again. Pritzker KNOWS that his actions are as unlawful as they are painful. That is their point!

    Growing Government Power via these “Legislative Solutions” to “Pritzkers Power Play Problem” all via Threat of Judicial Intervention IS his endgame, the endgame for his Party. Remember, Everything is for Party, when you are a collectivist communist.

    Then the collectivists claim “Due Process” was adhered to, and further that this automatically means it is all legitimate, by default of course, and thus it’s a exercise of the police power that nobody can do anything about or defend against. This is the core of “The Chicago Way”.

    SO puh-lease don’t anyone try to paint Naperville Park District as Heros here, somehow opposing Governor Pritzker. They are just serving him a nice slow pitch right over the judicial plate to knock out of the Cook County Courthouse and over the fence in Springfield’s part of their endless “case law” world series that never, ever ends.

  2. Park districts provide vital age appropriate resources! Data on the ill effects of prolonged restrictions to community resources like these are valid and MUST BE URGENTLY SOUGHT to the forefront of the restriction. Else, the policy mantra “Protecting Health, Saving Lives” fails miserably.

    Saving health, protecting lives?

    • But, but, the picture of health that is our leaders at the state and Chicago level is taking credit for doing so. In fact, no other causes of death exist now. If we can just comply and let them protect us, in about 10 years of lockdown, we’ll be able to live forever.

      • Welp, I’m just surprised the lawsuit does not name the IDPH Director along with the Governor. She’s likeable otherwise. Oh, I’ve hair curling cynicism for following officials that heed diminishing returns too…no lawsuit required.
