This is the August 14 edition of Left, Right and You

Larry and I want to thank Illinois 50th District Democratic State Rep candidate Valerie Burd for dropping by the studio and fielding our fascinating questions. What I really liked about this interview was Valerie offered some real solutions to the perils facing our state instead of simply spouting platitudes.

Replacing the educational portion of property taxes with a graduated income tax is a great idea. It would be difficult to make it fly in Springfield, but ya gotta start somewhere.

And please don’t forget the August 28 fundraiser for retired Elgin Police Sergeant Tom Lindner at Danny’s on Douglas from 5 to 7 p.m. It’s just 20 bucks for pizza and soft drinks and a really good cause.

Nest week, Jeff Meyer will sit in for the vacationing Larry and Tribune reporter Rick Pearson will join us to talk about the gubernatorial race. See you then!
