Our thanks to Thom Clark for leading this week’s discussion with the Tribune’s John McCarron and Salim Muwakkil of WVON and In These Times.

On the table this week: issues that might be factors in the Mayor’s race. These include ways to find more revenue to help close some of the municipal pension funding gaps, such as transaction taxes and casinos.

The panel splits on its support for Mayor Emanuel’s red-light cameras, and on the merits of slicing off a piece of Washington or Jackson parks for the potential Obama Library.
