Connected to Chicago (04-15-2018)

Bill Cameron sits down with mayoral candidate Troy LaRaviere. Troy explains how he is an award winning former CPS principal, and if elected mayor can transform Chicago Public Schools for the better. Bill and Troy also discuss the current issues of the day.

In this week’s round table segment, Bill Cameron is joined by Ray Long of the Chicago Tribune, Greg Hinz of Crain’s, Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun Times, and Fran Spielman of the Chicago Sun Times. This week’s discussion is all things Trump. They discuss how President Trump recently pardoned Scooter Libby, the possibility of President Trump pardoning former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich, and James Comey’s new book “A Higher Loyalty”. The talk turns back to local Illinois politics which include the approval rating of Governor Rauner and Illinois budget issues.

This week’s community spotlight segment with Jennifer Keiper features Mark Hamrick of Bankrate.com. Discussed is the government’s monthly jobs report. Mark Hamrick breaks down the employment numbers, discusses the strong and weak sectors, and why the numbers were not as strong as expected.
