Berkowitz on Roeser this Sunday night: A free fire zone

I will be a guest this coming Sunday night on Tom Roeser’s Political Shoot-out, WLS 890 AM Radio, from 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The show will also be joined by Becky Carroll, Press Spokeswoman for John Filan, Director of the Governor’s Office of Management and Budget.

Upset with something I said on my show? something I wrote on this blog?—this is your chance to fire back. A free fire zone, so to speak. Also, you can help shape the show by calling in with your questions and comments—312-591-8900. Democrats, Republicans, Independents and others are, of course, all welcome.

I don’t know the topics—which are determined by Mr. Roeser and are kept under seal until just before the show. However, I would guess they might include the resolution and aftermath of the State budget/tax/pension issues in Springfield and the political impact of that resolution; the Republican Gubernatorial Primary; The Republican primaries in the 6th and 8th CDs; the Democratic primaries in the 3rd and 10th CDs; the continuing corruption eruptions and turmoil in the Daley Administration and the growing list of Mayor of Chicago wannabees. The discussion may also include the loss of trust by parents with the Winnetka Public Schools Supt. and her School Board and is Winnetka illustrative of the general problem of K-12 public schools not being sufficiently responsive and transparent to parents and residents in their respective communities. And, of course, much, much more.
