News Room With Ken Davis and Lorraine Forte

This week I was on CAN TV's News Room with Ken Davis, appearing with Catalyst Chicago editor Lorraine Forte. We talked about CORE's victory in the CTU election, the public schools budget, privatization, TIFs, and Mayor Daley. Briefly.

The show will air Thursday, June 24th, 6:30 PM, Channel 19 and Friday, June 25th, 1:30 PM, Channel 19
