We called in two veteran Chicago observer/activists for today’s show for a “big-picture” discussion about our new mayor, the new redistricting maps, and just what it is we actually expect our governments to do and be.
Cindi Canary is immediate past president of the Illinois Campaign for Political Reform. She and her organization have led years-long battles for changes in campaign finance law and for a more rational approach to drawing district boundaries. Chris Robling is a Republican political strategist and commentator, and a past Chicago Board of Elections Commissioner.
Chris and the host engage in some spirited debate about the old adage that the government that governs best is that which governs least.
