Connected to Chicago Special Guest- Raja Krishnamoorthi & COPA Chief Sydney Roberts
Bill Cameron welcomes in Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi. Bill and Raja discuss local and national issues affecting us here locally and abroad. How has the Mayor’s response been to the rioting and looting of the city? Should the National Guard be in town? Has Governor Pritzker been doing a good job in re-opening Illinois from the covid-19 crisis? We also hear from COPA Chief Sydney Roberts. Welcome into the Round table discussion Ray Long of the Chicago Tribune, Greg Hinz of Crains, Heather Cherone of the Daily Line, Lynn Sweet and Fran Spielman of the Chicago Sun-Times. How has rioting and looting affected the city of Chicago? As well as other communities in Illinois? There has been a movement to defund the police, how does the Round table respond to that? This week’s Community Spotlight is with John Dempsey. John plays back emotional audio from Police Chief David Brown as he makes remarks the day after the Rioting and Looting ravaged the city of Chicago.
