Ken Davis is joined by the Tribune’s City Hall reporter Hal Dardick and the BGA’s Madeleine Doubek, who’s their Director of Civic Engagement. It’s a conversation about the current status of politics and policy as 2018 comes on-line. The panel discusses Chris Kennedy’s claim that Rahm Emanuel has a “strategic gentrification plan” to empty Chicago of minorities and ramp up gentrification across the city, along with the likelihood of Rahm Emanuel’s and Bruce Rauner’s re-election, the retirement of Lisa Madigan and the prospects for the candidates attempting to win her seat, and the ascension of Janice Jackson to CEO of the Chicago Public Schools. This program was produced by Chicago Access Network Television (CAN TV).
