The show airs tonight throughout the City of Chicago at 8:30 pm and midnight on Cable Ch. 21 [CANTV].
The show featuring Rep. Fine and challenger Myalls also airs tonight at 8:30 pm in ten North Shore suburbs on Comcast Cable Ch. 19: Bannockburn, Deerfield, Ft. Sheridan, Glencoe, Highland Park, Highwood, Kenilworth, Lincolnshire, Riverwoods and Winnetka
The show featuring Rep. Fine and challenger Myalls also can be watched 24/7 here.
The show should be of interest to voters across the State, as it exemplifies the differences in approach on key fiscal, economics and gun issues by Republicans and Democrats in State House and State Senate races throughout the State—as well as the differences in the Governor’s race between Rauner and Quinn.
Like the Governor’s race in Illinois, on fiscal and economic issues, the voters in the North Shore 17th State House race have a choice, not an echo.
Tonight’s show features State Rep. Laura Fine (D-Glenview) and her challenger, Republican State Rep. Candidate Kathy Myalls (R-Wilmette) debating and discussing the state economy and jobs, charter school choice, state income tax decreases, disclosure of identities of donors to advocacy groups, whether the 17th State House district and state of Illinois needs change or needs the status quo-- and much, much more.
The show consists of clips of a recent League of Women Voters forum (Wilmette, Glenview and Evanston), with each candidate answering the same questions from the moderator, Suzanne Calder (League of Women Voters, Evanston)—and each candidate answering a few questions from show host Jeff Berkowitz at the end of the show to sum it all up.
