Bill Cameron plays highlights of Illinois Governor, J.B. Pritzker's forum with students at Harvard University held earlier this week. Governor Pritzker discussed his role as a "pragmatic progressive" Democrat and addressed questions about gun safety laws, the influence of big money on politics, and his thoughts about the future of Chicago under future Mayor, Brandon Johnson.
The roundtable with Heather Cherone, Greg Hinz, Ray Long and Dave Stewart discussed the announcement earlier in the week that Chicago was selected to host the 2024 Democratic National Convention. More information comes out in the 'Mike Madigan/ComEd Four' trial and there is still a problem with unfunded pensions in Illinois. Greg Hinz of Crain's Chicago Business describes how a new 'fix' proposed by state Sen. Rob Martwick could help reduce the defect but might cost state taxpayers "billions".
