We talk about Paul Vallas. Or brother Michael does. Vallas has left everything he touches in shatters and now he wants to be Mayor of Chicago. Oy vey. Most of the hour is spent talking with Aaron Goldstein, 33rd Ward Democratic Party Committeeman and candidate for Illinois Attorney General. A real progressive.
On this episode of Hitting Left on the eve of the second Women's March, we welcome disabilities advocate and activist, Amber Smock.
Delia Ramirez, community activist, is running for state rep from the 4th district in Chicago's Humboldt Park. We talk Trump, what is a Progressive and her vision for equity.
CTU political organizer, radio commentator and now candidate for the Cook County Board of Commissioners, Brandon Johnson, joins us for the third time on Hitting Left with the Klonsky Brothers. What does the County Board do? Why is it important who sits on it. And how do political radicals and progressives use political office to build a street movement while creating a progressive governing coalition providing results to constituents? We talk about this and more.
