Connected to Chicago (04-21-2019) Mayor Richard M. Daley Retrospective

Former Mayor Richard M. Daley turns 77 next Wednesday April 24th. Bill plays the most memorable moments from the Mayor’s 22 years in office.

Bill welcomes in the Round Table to discuss the week in news, and what’s to come. Joining the show this week is Ray Long from the Chicago Tribune, Heather Cherone of The Daily Line, Fran Spielman and Lynn Sweet of The Chicago Sun-Times. The conversation kicks off with expert analysis on the Mueller Report. Mayor-elect Lightfoot looks to get rid of Aldermanic prerogative when she takes office in May, and is a graduated income tax taking shape in Springfield?

John Dempsey speaks with Colton Grace, a spokesman for a group called S.A.M., which stands for Smart Approaches to Marijuana. They talk about his group’s opposition to the idea of legalizing recreational marijuana in Illinois.
