This week's Chicago Metro Suburban edition of "Public Affairs," features 2010 7th Cong. Dist. Democratic Primary candidate Chicago Ald. Sharon Denise Dixon (D-24th Ward)

The Chicago Metro Suburban airing schedule for Public Affairs is included, below. The show was recorded on Sunday, November 15, 2009.
You can soon watch the show with Ald. Dixon on your computer here.
Chicago Ald. Sharon Denise Dixon is a candidate in the 7th Cong. Dist. Democratic Primary. Cong. Danny Davis, a thirteen year incumbent, filed for both President of the Cook County Board and for re-election in the 7th CD. After he saw the competition in the Cook County Board President race, he apparently decided, a week after filing, to withdraw from the race for President of the Cook County Board. So, the real question is- why did Cong. Davis file for County Board President? Why, indeed.

In addition to Ald. Dixon, a number of candidates have apparently decided to stay in the 7th CD race, including Deputy Cook County Recorder of Deeds Darlena Williams-Burnett, Businessman Jim Ascot, Businesswoman Joyce Washington and Rev. Hatch. Senator Hendon has dropped out to run for Lt. Governor. State Reps. Ford and Collins have dropped out to run for re-election. It is interesting that Cong. Davis has attracted three African-American females to oppose his re-election. Some have suggested there might be a “ringer,” or two in that group. Someone filing mainly to drain votes from someone else? That type of thing has been known to happen in Chicago politics.
Ald. Dixon is a smart, thoughtful candidate who knows the public policy issues and she knows politics, as well. She came up in politics via the grassroots, upsetting a 12 year incumbent Alderman in the 24th Ward more than two years ago. She is looking for a repeat in February, as she seeks to upset a 13 year incumbent congressman, Danny Davis.

Ald. Dixon debates and discusses a broad range of domestic and foreign policy issues with show host and executive legal recruiter Jeff Berkowitz on this week’s suburban edition of “Public Affairs.” Topics discussed include was the military guilty of political correctness in dealing with Major Hasan? If President Obama asks for a resolution supporting 40,000 additional troops for the war in Afghanistan, should Congress give it to him? Was General Casey wacky on diversity and the Ft. Hood shooting? Should illegal immigrants be included in the Obama healthcare reform plan? Should residents in the City of Chicago have greater choice from charter and voucher schools? Is the Obama economic stimulus program working? Should abortion be permitted in the third trimester if a woman’s life is not at issue? Should taxes be increased or decreased? Should we allow same sex marriage? Should we bring back the ban on assault weapons? Should citizens in the City of Chicago be allowed to possess a handgun in their homes? Outside their homes? And much, much more.
