  • The initial County Campton Hills rehab center decision will come soon
  • A good Elgin Octave Elgin City Council candidate forum
  • Donald Trump makes a big splash in his first week

  • The hopeful Springfield budget compromise
  • U-46 school board members Cody Holt and Jeanette see Communists everywhere
  • A nominating petition wrong is righted!
  • Whats going on at the County

Ward & Jones on AM1410 at 9 a.m.

Please join me, the Curmudgeonly liberal, and Ward & Jones supersub extraordinaire, Kurt Kojzarek, for another rollicking good hour of local political coverage. This morning we’ll be discussing:

  • The Women’s Marches
  • Judson University cancels their World Leadership Forum  (No!)
  • An Elgin Township referendum to help seniors – it’s a good idea
  • We’re one year into the Elgin Police Department’s “We Can Help” drug program
  • Cody Holt blocks me from commenting??!!

With Kurt back from his stripped investigation, we’ll see what he uncovered!

Kurt and Jeff

Today on Ward & Jones at 3 – AM1410

ECC Trustee and local attorney Jeff Meyer will fill in for the Smiling Conservative as we discuss how Springfield political change really works. The other Jeff has some rather strange ideas!


Jeff Meyer

Then Kane County Coroner, Rob Russell will call in to discuss the heroin epidemic. A 55 percent increase over 2015 Kane County overdose deaths? Yikes!


I’m not sure, but I think Larry is performing some in-depth research on that whole Kane County strippers lawsuit. Our motto is no sacrifice is too great for the show!

Please tune in to Ward & Jones this afternoon at 3 on WRMN AM1410.
